    I have come across websites which have total 10-25 backlinks linking to the main domain
    and their internal pages are ranking

    while I have lots of backlinks but still my internal pages are not ranking


    any suggestions?

    1) Check your website navigation structure. Are all pages reachable by clicking on links from the homepage? Also create a site map.
    2) Check quality of backlinks. Are they contextual? Check PR of pages that are linking to your site. It is possible to rank with few good quality links.having many but spammy links doesn't help.
    3) Your site may have been penalised. Is your content unique? Are you registered with GWT? Any notifications? Are your link spammy?

    Not all backlinks will show up on the tools. Also, site's age, content and on-site seo, quality backlinks like many factors involved.

    Also, at times. That site may have many 301 redirected backlinks too from high PR domains.

    Do interlinking and on page seo. Build links for your inner pages also.

    Behind you!
    Firstly, you have to know.

    Backlinks are just a factor to rank your site. There are many other factors considered while ranking your site including ON PAGE SEO. Though, you have made your site with perfect on page seo, you could have got bad links but the sites which you have come across may have got all 20-25 as super good links.

    about the backlinks, quantity doesn't matter at all, quality matters!

    What are the links? I mean if its a handful of strong niche relevant high quality links from authority sites. Contextual, homepage, whatever, that site will out rank 1000's of auto build links all day long. It's not just a question of quantity at all.

    thanks everyone for your help
    Site A has Quality links from authority sites Brand websites.

    but site B does not have unique content ( shopping cart)
    backlinks mostly from single niche forum promoting his website.

    some meta description tags are missing

    no alt tag, no h1 tag ( except title)
    no bold underline of text
    sites PR is also 1

    I am building quality links
    my site is not penalized because I am ranking for many competitive pages

    I think the major difference is the title tag which is all caps
