    My ahref rank, UR and DR is much better than my competition, but my google ranking is much lower than them!

    why is this?

    Because link metrics are only a part of ranking a site, otherwise it would be so easy to get to #1. Maybe your user metrics are worse?

    I do not believe that these arbitrary metrics are all that it takes for ranking. However, I have found that Majestic metrics have better correlation with SERP rankings compared to Ahrefs or Moz metrics. How is the Majestic metrics esp. Trust Follow of the website compared to the other top 10 rankings.

    Both are very different. Please don't compare between Google vs. Ahrefs.

    That means? The links which you built is not enough to outrank your competitor.

    Rankings and metrics in sites such as Ahrefs, Moz, Majestic etc are not necessarily related to Google rankings. The different metrics can be used to approximate the quality of a domain or webpage but ultimately they have their own algorithms that are completely separate to Google's so they will have little to no bearing on actual rankings.
