    Why am I not ranked at #2? and why a guy with no backlinks ranked at #10? Also do referring domains play a role in serp position?

    Maybe the content of your page is not as good as the other sites?
    I'm a newbie, but I think that if a site has 3000 backlinks and poor content can't rank as good content sites with less backlinks...

    have you tried onpage optimisation reports after your keywords by comparing your website to the ones of your competitors?

    if not - try Website Auditor (part of SEO power suite applications) - 1 of the very best tools available

    Alot things can come into play - like whats your on page seo like ? Do you have everything in place so big g can crawl your site easy and see what your site is about ? tell us more about you and the others, is your site 1 month old and the others 4 years + etc ? just an example of why you could be out ranked.

    You are looking at 2 of 200 factors. IMO each domain counts as one link.

    If you look at the referring domains column; it looks about right. BTW, you may want to cover up your keyword at the top of your screen shot.

    I quickly spotted 7 opportunities for improvement:

    1. No authority links. You can't just rely on the link count. Quality counts too.

    2. No deeplinks to this page whatsoever from off-domain. Did you just pound your homepage non-stop?

    3. Bad on-page SEO. Links aren't everything. Your meta description is horrible. It's too short and gives no reason to click on your link and Google measures clickthrough in relation to the other sites on the page. You need to offer something unique to the visitor that the other sites don't and make this clear in your SERPS snippet. No original research here or truly original content. Just a couple of product descriptions that I imagine you pulled from somewhere and re-wrote in your own words.

    4. Keyword is a stretch for your site. Since your site is made specifically for students, and chances are the majority of the searchers on your keyword are not students, your result is not attractive to a large portion of searchers. Also, your site has many subjects on it not related to the keyword, whereas some other sites in the list are built entirely the around laptop/pc niche.

    5. The top 4 results are huge authority sites in this niche.

    6. Nearly all of your links are nofollow and your site homepage is PR1. You don't have as much link juice as you think you do.

    7. Your 2000+ links come from only a handful of sites.

    here is short onpage optimisation report:

    /Page Elements Optimization Rate based on your keyword 'best laptops 2010' / max 100% - min 0% / good rate 50%+ on each of them /

    Page Title 34.1%
    Meta Description 22.9%
    Meta Keywords 13.6%
    Body 21.9%
    H1 Headings 0%
    Bold Text Blocks 91.3%
    Anchor Texts 47.1%
    Image Alt Texts 3.9%
    Entire Page 25.3%

    -- sort this one 1st as you have to be much, much better as your competitors with your optimisation rate - then start doing other things.

    probably next thing - change the template. i realy don't want to return there :/

    p.s. if you think this information is useful - go to virginads [co] [uk] and give us your facabook like :)
    p.p.s. your keyword can be seen in the top part of your screenshot

    As @nonin have proven, then might it be a good idea to work on your onsite SEO. A well optimize site and rank very well, with few quality links!
