Relevant Page Buried Under Irrelevant Pages At Google - Why?

I help out a friend of mine, she runs a team building company (www.citychallengeuk.com). One of the cities they offer their events in is Heidelberg in Germany. We would therefore like to rank for the term

team building Heidelberg

In MSN and Yahoo we rank Number 1, however in Google we rank Number 7. Now, I don't mind healthy competition, but none of the sites that rank above us are even slightly related to team building in Heidelberg.

I am at a total loss to explain why these sites rank above us for a term that is very specific. Can anyone else shed some light on this please?

mattk,

There is nothing wrong with your page.

If you really want that #1 spot in google for that keyword, I would suggest that you take a very close look at the pages above you, what are you doing that they are not...

Only a hint because, If I told ya I'd have to charge ya...
