I have a website that I set up using a website builder. I set the metatags for each page for Internet advertising searches and still after 5 months when I search Google for my business name - which is on the Header of my index page - or for any of my products, nothing shows up at all....so I have a store and no customers. How can I correct this and why was I not picked up by Google in all this time?
I appreciate anyone who can help

There are many factors that need to be in place to get top ranking pages, but meta tags are not one of them. They have only a minor influence, and pages with no meta tags at all are often in the top ten.
The keys are inbound links (as specter said) and the visible text content of your pages.
A good place to begin to get the big picture for google success is this classic thread: [webmasterworld.com...]
