    Hi
    Though my website has a much higher score on Moz and Ahrefs (by far), seems like my competitors are doing better than me on the main keywords we're competing on.
    Is there a way I can extract the metadata from my competitors website to see if this is a problems with my onsite SEO?
    Is it hidden or searchable? I want to compare the two.

    ondering if there are also other reason it might be

    Its searchable unless it is restricted by robots.txt. I have seen some site made it vulnerable!

    You can try google sheets and IMPORTXML function to extract data from lots of urls.
    Of course there are some limitations.

    Meta data is not enough for comparing, you need to do complete on-page audit to verify why they are ranking and you are not,
    Backlinks are not enough to rank, there are many more things. I am sure you will get clear idea after comparing your site with your competitors.
