How do I improve my ranking on google.  Google has indexed the pages on my site but unless I search for my site directly it does not come up under "Feng Shui Consultants"

You have cast a very wide net; there are literally thousands of results.

For starters, have you tried 'Feng Shui Consultants near me'? Check if your page is using keywords that will get you recognized in your local area. If not, start by concentrating on getting your SEO pages and home page driving local traffic, then go from there.

Use a free browser SEO plugin like Ahrefs to allow you to see if your pages have the correct SEO titles, descriptions, and content. It is a slow and methodical process. Small steps...

Edit: I just looked at your site with Ahrefs plugin, and your site title contains 'Feng Shui Consultations', not 'Feng Shui Consultants' so you need to work on keywords for sure. In addition, your home page title ('FENG SHUI CONSULTATIONS FOR GOOD FORTUNE!') ought to be h1, and yours is h2. This can have an impact on search results.

Hi all. Yes it is best practice to use H1 as the main heading on a page for clarity and structure. But it's also important to note that Google is sophisticated enough to understand the context and relevance of content even if the main heading is H2. Tools often overemphasize this, more info here: https://www.collaborada.com/blog/h0gw4sh

Regarding keywords, Google will understand "consultations" and "consultants" as related. As an example, I just searched "Feng Shui Consultants near me" and the first result's title tag is "__ Feng Shui Consultations." That site was also on Squarespace 😃
