Only one of your pages is indexed on Google. I am not seeing anything obviously blocking Google from crawling and indexing your site. Have you registered with Google Search Console? If so, you should look for any errors regarding indexing the site. Let me know if you have done this already and I can help with next steps.
Thank you for your reply, well yes I registered with Google Search Console, I used Shopify before I never had this issue, I mean if the SEO is very bad and the domain name is new and just connected to the store when I google it I find it..., now I have all pages set but the website doesn't appear anywhere on google! I have no idea why, I'll try to look for errors as you suggested and see what I'll come up with :)
If your website store is more than a month. I guess your website has already indexed by search engine robots. The effect or result would be take for a few months.
This is an accepted solution.
Google only has one of your pages indexed, but you can force a crawl of your site by using Google Search Console (GSC) to see if Google will index more quickly. In GSC, click URL Inspection in the left menu. Enter your domain name and Google will respond telling you the index status. Click the Request Indexing button and Google will put your site in queue to crawl. Since you robots.txt file is not blocking Google, within a couple days this message should go away and Google will start crawling your site again. You can check your index coverage by clicking on Coverage to see what Google has crawled but is blocking based on the robots file.
It should only take a day or two for Google to recrawl and reindex. You can use the report in GSC called coverage to see what is indexed.
In regards to showing up when you search for something like 'web design services' this is highly competitive search. SEO is super complex and there are many, many different techniques to ranking well. But, I would start with the basics and get your page titles and meta descriptions optimized.
Finally I would recommend reading Moz's beginners guide to SEO. It will help you understand the fundamentals and what it takes to drive traffic organically.
Hope that helps!
