I have been a member of this community for some time but this is my first attempt to reach out for help...for your wisdom (if you care to share it ).

I need help problem solving an SEO situation that I have never encountered before. Here are the details and what I ahve already tried to problem solve:

Site Development: I and my company did not design the site but ahve been hired to help fix their SEO (something I do regularly).
Site CMS: Wordpress 4.1
SEO Plugins: All in One SEO and Google XML Sitemap

Issue: They want to rank for a Google Search for "pedorthics canada". Last May/June I accomplished this for them and they were happy. Somehow in fall 2014 that search result disappeared entirely. I cannot even get to yield an organic result in Google.

What I have done:
1) Checked if site is indexed and it is
2) Homepage is indexed
3) Ensured that "pedorthics canada" is in live text on the homepage (twice), that is also the homepage title tag, and H1 tag, images are properly named including keyword string.
4) Sitemap is submitted to Google and via Webmaster tools
5) Cleaned up all crawl errors and structured data errors in Google Webmaster Tools.
6) Created Google Local for Business Listing and G+ Page.

Insight requested: As you look at this, is there anything you could suggest I try? I am very stumped. The frustrating part is that a "pedorthics canada" search yields no listing at all. That is what I want to fix. I welcome any insights you might like to share! Thanks!
