    Hello,

    I have a competitor ranked 1st and me ranked 2nd. that is satisfied me.
    But recently, when i check my ranking, I found myself ranked 15.

    How that is possible!

    well, google shows the result like that.

    1- www mycompetitor com / categorie1.html
    2- www mycompetitor com / categorie2.html
    3- www mycompetitor com / categorie3.html
    4- www mycompetitor com / categorie4.html
    5- www mycompetitor com / categorie5.html
    6- www mycompetitor com / categorie6.html
    ...
    15- www mywebsite com

    what should i do ??

    Thanks

    Check out the sort of links he is using.

    I have seen this a few times...usually because the competition is weak or the site has really good authority and links.

    Have you tried high quality links?

    Odds are that your competitor is interlinking his pages as well he should. Take a look at that and see if that is what is giving him the bump.

    Check how your competitors silo structure interlinking also how thier rich snippets are if any

    Don't just copy paste from your competitor, study harder niches and see what they do. I noticed that in some niches social media has a bigger impact than in other niches... in other content is more relevant, etc. My advice to you, try to build wikipedia in your field :)

    yes, i've tried but i don't want to be 1st, the 2nd position is perfect for me.

    i want to know if i can rank these links like www competitor com / category.html

    and be the one after www competitor com
