ahrefs, moz, majestic, ubersuggest, semrush - every metric im either above or on or just near level of competitors from page 1. not only that, because i never focus too much on metrics. I have only relevant links with ton of readable content coming from healthy reputable sites - theres no way i have less link power than my competitors. i also have links that my competitors have. theres literally no reason to derank my site, yet, when the domain was fresh, it was 17# nearly instantly, as I made links, it was continually dropped to #44 r u drunk, google? the only thing thats maybe causing the drop is me checking the position 10 times daily from my IP and then not clicking my domain which could count as negative UX. yeah i can tell i started dropping more as i started checking position more often, but dropping your domain from #13 to #44 because of one person's IP not clicking on your domain in serp.. is pretty stupid so i would never thinks it harms my site or maybe google started deranking your sites when youre making links but that makes no sense too i have started second domain that im not backlinking at all and started it on expired instead of new domain like site #1.
