    So a decent competitor has only 745 bl's which I found (could be more but not much)...

    The majority of his bl's come from a blog where his link is placed in the footer. His blog is PR4 and Alexa rank about 1million.

    His domain is ~6 years old.

    I have so many more bl's than him, how is he kicking my butt and pulling so much traffic???

    I have been doing only white hat links.

    Does a footer link on a PR4 crappy blog pull this much weight?

    Maybe his content is better, or he has better bl. maybe his onpage optimization rocks...

    so many possibilities.

    Maybe he is getting traffic from Social media as well which help for SERP as well.

    Post good and unique content that peoples wants and make the backlinks from Social Media sites as well which is really worth;)

    He could be using tiers of links... So 745 might only be the first tier. He could have 1MM links point to those for all we know.

    ^^This, most likely. You can't just look at the surface. I outrank competitors with thousands more links than me. But if you take a closer look, and find the backlinks of my backlinks, you will find these links themselves have diverse backlink profiles.
