    I don't know if it is because I changed the keyword in less than 3 weeks ago but i'm stuck on 4th page. I have better domain and page authority, more facebook and google + likes then those on first page... what could it be that is making me get get stuck there? I'm even doing 1 blog post a week...

    Moz ranking has nothing to do with Serps.

    How is your onpage SEO?

    Do your competitors have better more powerful links?

    Google dones't care about a 3rd party like Moz. All that matters is how Google evaluates your site.

    Your competitors might have a PBN with hidden links. Those links wouldn't be counted by moz/ahrefs/majestic if those crawlers are blocked.

    Competition analyzers make use of Moz metrics to give you an idea on the sites ranking at the top. It doesnt mean getting better metrics would get you better posititons as there are far more factors to consider.

    Check the MOZ metrics of the first SERPs page for 10 keywords of your choice. Result? You'll see that these metrics tell you zero about how good or bad a site ranks. Site age (not domain age) for example is one important faactor, especially in competitive niches.

    Sidenote: The Yoast plugin is very basic, never assume that you onpage optimization or content are fine just because you see some green light from this plugin.

    Moz != Google
    That pretty much sums it up. 3rd party metrics are just that.
