    New domain im trying to rank; I rank # 5; yet site (B) Ranks 4; yet he ranks (1-2-3). Domain.com/key1; Domain.com/key2, Domain.com/key3. Pisses me off. I guess im not asking a question here, but more of ranting in anger. Anyway to properly diagnose a site to see (how far) you are from bumping them from that position? I have majesticseo as its my only tool.

    @dresden14: it's very normal. I have seen a lot of sites that rank in top 3 of their keywords.

    Should be pretty straight forward to copy his linkstrategy and do the work a little bit better to get pos 1.

    i have the same situation here, but my competitor seems to have only about 20-30 backlinks and he's 1st, but his site is from 1997.. so im not sure if that plays a major factor..

    One of my main competitors was number 1/2 for my main keyword but he vanished a couple of days ago, the backlinks he had were from 5 blogs, they were sitewide links. I have been steady link building and im now in 2nd position soon to be number 1 :)
