    I looked my site up on seo spyglass. it showed 1,435 links (I am #25 for my keyword
    I looked up the #10 site for my keyword and the site has 106 links.

    How is it i have x14 amount of links but my site is 25 and theirs is 10 ?

    Depends what kind of links do you have ...
    SEO it's not so simple ... :)
    I can have 50 000 links and not outrank a competitor that has 200 links.

    Main reasons why you don't outrank your competitor :

    1. do you have a keyword anchor text on all your links ?
    2. how many outbounds links are on the page that are linking to you ?
    3. what is the Pr on the URL that is linking to you
    4. Are your links d-o-f-o-l-l-o-w ?
    5. your domain age compared to your competitors domain age
    6. your domain PR
    7. how many pages you have indexed in google
    8. keyword density
    9. domain keyword density
    10. Title keyword density

    This are just a few , but the most important SEO factors.

    good luck outranking your competition.

    I have the same problems with some of my sites. In my case the competitors have higher PR and domain age.

    Some factors include:

    domain age?
    Backlink quality?
    Do the backlinks smell like spam?
    Does your doamin contain the keywords?
    how consistently do you build backlinks?

    Your competitor could have 100 backlinks, but each of his 100 backlinks contains 10 million backlinks..
    its all about link juice.

    put about 20-30 pages of some good quality content on your site....

    rename those pages w/that content with your long tail keywords or keywords that in your niche...

    like.... yoursite.com/keyword1-example-one
    yoursite.com/keyword2-example-two
    yoursite.com/keyword3-example-three

    than.... back link some good quality LOW OBL's

    How old if your site? How old are your links? Are they relevant? Are they strong?

    Quantity isn't everything. I've read its somewhere from a base 8 to a base 10 scale. Meaning 1 PR 3 links = 10 PR 2 links = 100 PR 1 links = 1,000 PR 0 links.

    Also have the keyword in your title tag, meta description tag, have the proper keyword density, put it in <h1> header tag, put similar keywords in <h2> tags, use anchor text on your backlinks. And there are a few other ways, but using just these should pop you up.

    If you use Market Samurai, you can actually look at the backlinks and the PR of the backlinks for your competitors. I'm not sure if there is a free copy available, but it only costs $100, and is worth every penny.
