Whenever I type in a name I want to search for, which exists in my list of Google Contacts, it pulls up a blank card or tells me that no match exists, or nothing has been found.

Any ideas why that is and how to fix it?

And this happens with all contacts, regardless of the name you are searching for? – Alex Sep 14 '13 at 6:17
I'm only able to reproduce your findings, if there's no match at all, like contact name: Jacob and searching for Jack. You will get a hit when you search for Jac. Perhaps you can try and not search for an exact match.... – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Sep 14 '13 at 6:21
Sometimes, after creating a new contact entry or importing contacts, Google needs a moment to index it. Usually, it's almost instantaneous, but somtimes not. Waiting a bit solved the problem. But in my case, it said that no match exists, no blank card was pulled up. – Lernkurve Sep 23 '13 at 8:11
