First find out the domain age of both the sites. I am sure that your competitor site would have been registered before your site. If you have quality backlinks when compare to your competitor site, then no need to worry. Soon your keyword would be ranking next to your competitor site. Also you should go for white hat seo tactics in building backlinks for your sites.

Did you check your site backlinks with your competitor site in Google. Just check in Google by link:sampledomain.com. If your site has more backlinks than your competitor site in Google, then i can guarantee that your site will come in first page of Google. Since i have tried and got succeed.

There are more than 200 factors influence your organic rankings, here are few important one:

- Onsite optimization (content, title meta, internal linking, usability etc)
- Offsite optimization (quality and thematic backlinks)

Still if you can share your website URL, i can provide exact suggestion that can help you in improving your organic search ranks.

Yes you are right. Domain age differs. They are registered before us.

The problem is not the number of backlink, I think you should concentrate on the quality of backlink, of course if you have more quality backlinks than your competitor you will be at the top of SERPs

There are so many factors to consider besides the actual amount of backlinks. 1 backlink from a high authority page could be worth as much as 5000 backlinks from low authority pages. Also, as previous posts mention there are other factors such as domain age, site speed, on page factors etc.

Here are two articles that may (or may not ) help you understand what is going on a little better.

Though the point made above about there 200+ aspects that go into Google's algorithm is spot on in most cases for why one site is above another.

http://www.hhc-europe.com/articles/S..._page-rank.asp (web page)

since these were written things have moved on slightly - but they are still a good start point
