Why my Site is not Ranking above my Competitors?

Hi
Here I have a very serious question to ask. Please reply it seriously.

Since last 6 months, I am working on few keywords to rank but my site is still on the 2nd page of Google for those keywords but my top 2 Competitors are on 1 and 2 positions.

Let me explain you something.

My site is more than 2 years old, has more quality backlinks than my Competitors, On-Page SEO of my site and competitors is same.

What could be the reason and what should I do?

Regards

I don't do private consults.
Unless you post it, no one is going to be able to give any serious advice.

There could be many different factors /reasons why your competitors rank better than you. But we can’t help without the keywords and url of your page.

If you want serious help then be serious yourself about it. Without these two things we can only guess.

backlinks are not everything in SEO.
Content plays an important now. focus on your content.
and if they are still on the top they must be doing something better than yours. so find it out and work on it and do something that they don't do. it will make you unique and can improve your rankings.

Listn to me, having quality backlinks is not only the part of seo there are other factors too, in my experience given below.
SEO on page. basic seo level max. optimiced all the posibilities

- quality backlinks

- Account in google plus

- Account in alexa

- Social accounts: facebook, twitter, instagram

- link in other pages relative similar caracteristics

- Apply seo programs to solve the errors

- forums joining

After seeing your article, i can say that your aritlce has maximum of 500 words or less. So today's seo has been changed entirely from old one, so only backlinks are not enough. According to experts like Brian Dean you must write 1500+ words in an article to compete your competitors.

You can compare my URL with my top 2 competitors in AHrefs tool. I have done everything better than them.

Waiting for your response.

My Competitors have even fewer words than my article.

Then their published article must be old than yours. Or they have have greater Domain authority than your domain authority. Because there can be several reasons behind it. What is your domain authority?

Irrelevant. Google does not use DA as a ranking metric.

- quality backlinks - Yeah right! You mean spam links and not natural links.

- Account in google plus - Has nothing to do with SEO

- Account in alexa - Has nothing to do with SEO

- Social accounts: facebook, twitter, instagram - ONLY GOOD FOR SOCIAL VALIDATION NOT SEO

- link in other pages relative similar caracteristics - Has nothing to do with SEO

- Apply seo programs to solve the errors - WTF!!!

- forums joining - Has nothing to do with SEO

As already stated DA has nothing to do with any search engine ranking - Period!!!

MOZ metrics are false, made-up, a lie - Not one single MOZ metric has anything to do with ANY search engine.

It's very difficult to say what you have done right or wrong with out in-depth knowledge about both your site and your competitors site.

Seriously raees1994. If you really want some quality help then you will need to tell us your url. Without it there can be 1000 different things why your competitors are in front of you and all we can do is guess. Do yourself and us a favor and tell your url.

Dude if you're not comfortable sharing your url with many. I offer my help, you can always write a personal message to me and I'll try to help you as I did with the other thread with your url with the category or post

My suggestion would be that during (not 'since' but 'during') the last six months your competitors were writing interesting content about whatever subject their website is about, and that they were doing so constantly and repeatedly.

During the same period you were fixated on creating content that contained your chosen 'few keywords' you wanted to rank by.

See the difference? Your competitors wrote content for their visitors, you wrote content around your keywords. Stop it! Write decent content. Keep writing decent content. Once you have finished, check what content your visitors liked, then write some more.

The Google algorythm can tell from the ages of content which website regularly add consistently good content, and which websites only add the occasional splurge of pages.

Firstly, this is not a new issue, everyone connected with SEO might cry on the same point sometimes. Since you said you are not ranking leveled to your competitors so will you let us know what strategies you have worked with for 6 months?

Secondly, 2 years old site makes no big difference & you need to keep growing your number of quality backlinks.
