I competed an article from another site and build backlinks to outrank it. It's been almost a month and I don't see any keyword starts to ranking yet albeit their metrics lower than mine. What Am I missing?

Is your article indexed? If not, then you should submit it to GSC for indexing.

It's indexed and Ahref shows referring domain count but no keywords ranking.

What AHREFs and what Google sees are two different things. Are your links indexed in Google? Meaning, if you go to Google and put in site:linkingdomain.com/page-that-links-to-your-site/ do your links show results?

Op either your links are not good or your content is not optimized. You need to check lots of things.

Agree with this. Your links might be bad, your onpage might be bad, or you might just need to wait a little while longer while Google does its thing. Is this a new site or an aged site?

For onpage optimization, you can use tools like Surfer SEO or Page Optimizer Pro.

Never heard of it. Is that what I've to look into?

You should for onpage , it will tell you about possible errors . If you manage to get A grade then look into link building part. Possibly you are targeting a difficult keyword and your links are not good enough for that.
