    Too many variables to take into account to try to give you an answer. Maybe you can share the URLs of the 2 pages in question so someone can take a look? Also, it could be a sign that your content is better on the unintended page and you don't need to worry about optimization so much?

    Build backlinks to what's ranking. It means Google likes your site, that page in particular. Make sure it's properly monetized and keep going like that was what you meant to have happen.
