Why do my competitor ranks well than my blog? I've checked on the backlinks. I got 1000+ backlinks and his blog got only 19 backlinks. My blog was updated and his blog was outdated. His last post was march. How the heck he ranks number 2 on Google and my blog only rank on the second page! And its the same as yahoo and Bing! Does domain age play a big role on this? I know his domain is older than mine for three months.
