Great content, super site structure, natural links, etc. does not matter. Maybe these small businesses just are not big enough for Google to even want to bother with?
FYP: Maybe these small businesses just are not big enough for [Google's Searchers] to even want to bother with?
How do I know the first statement wasn't quite right? The same post...
Searchers modify their queries to search for "brand name widget" when Google does not display their site for simply "widget."
Why do the "little guys" disappear? Not because Google has a "thing" against them, but rather because based on the preceding they're obviously not what Google's Searchers want to see.
