Websites are placed higher on Google if they hold more popularity or visitors. The broader the search, the broader the results, which are usually only leading companies or people. Like any other searches within Google, adding onto the search with various factors such as professions, social media, hometowns, and even interest can gradually narrow down the results until you ultimately will find, well, you.
