    So,I have a website in high competition niche and I can't rank it,I can't even get to first 100 results
    In first google page there are some websites with 100 backlinks in total and I have 2.5k backlinks(164 referring domaind at the moment)
    I have 1k+ social signals in total.

    My website uses wordpress responsive theme,it doesn't have a lot of content as it's like landing page but it has enough content to rank.
    Woorank is 61.5 the problem might be 13.98% text/html ratio,but I doubt
    Domain is like 2 months old,when I bought it,it had 0 backlinks.

    I really can't rank any of keyword on my website,I have 3 main keywords and none in top-100 google results...
    If I search site:website.com then it shows me all indexed pages

    I have ranked 3 websites before and I'm really confused with this one

    You can try to add few content and redirect it to the main landing page. As you say you've the bakclinks you need but you can't rank it. Try to add more content.

    In my opinion no one site has enought backlinks, they can have more and more!

    The niche makes all the difference, some are just simply impossible to crack into, some can break into overnight

    It is far easier to rank loads of medium easy comp keywords and make good money, than it is to rank high comp keywords.

    Its not about total number of links, its more about quality of those links.

    I'm not talking about super high competition that you think as the keyword is long tail!
    Niche is about game hack so there aren't very old sites.
    I have ranked much more competitive niche in 3 months...

    The problem is that I have backlinks and I can't find myself on google and people in same niche with 100+ backlinks are on page1,2.

    You need some solid links man, the number of links doesn't mean shit anymore. If somebody's sitting on the first page for a high competition keyword and has less than 100 incoming links, some if not all of their links are probably really strong. Get the links that other people won't pay for cause they're too expensive, that's how you rank. People won't pay $300 for a single link that could help them a lot, but they'll pay $800 for a big batch of garbage that will give them a temporary boost in rankings at best.

    Check the age of the domains that your trying to compete against .. PLUS authority of the pages and domain as this is a huge factor.. if your 2 month old site has less age, page authority and quality of backlinks then your not gonna rank.. Good luck

    If the competition is high then you need a lot of passions and investment to ready. Try to convert your website an authority site by getting 1000s of quality and high PR backlinks. Once your website becames a branded and authority then its ready to compete with high aged and no. 1 sites in your niche. That process probably will take 6 to 8 months.

    Take a small paragraph from your homepage and paste it into Google. If your site is not showing #1 then you have problems. Could be a penalty.

    How many searches a month on the keyword? Is it even worth it?

    Try to create your own high pr blog network and I am sure you will get your site ranked in 2 more weeks.

    Around 30k exact searches main keyword.
    Guys I have experience in SEO,I know what I'm doing,but in this case I'm really confused.
    It's not only about backlinks as there are some pages with 10 backlinks that are ranked and I'm not...
    Penalized? but how? Maybe I bought already penalized domain? I don't think so

    This ^^^

    Quantity of backlinks stopped being effective in like 2010. Today, it's about quality. 15-20 backlinks from your own built private blog network can do wonders compared to 100,000 links built by GSA SER, SENuke, etc.

    All those criteria you use for ranking is nothing but total BS.

    A good PR4 is worth much more than 1million crappy links.
    Also, content doesn't rank a site.

    I think you should start looking at ranking with good quality domains,
    high pr, relevance and low OBL.

    You may have an inbound link penalty. You have 25x more links than your competitors in only two months. That doesn't look natural.
