Any good ways to improve my site's ranking?

My eCommerce website in a low competitive niche is currently going down in SERP (was close to Top 10, but now its Top 15+), even though there are no penalties in Search Console. Seo Audit Tools like Seoptimer reports that optimization is quite good.

The thing that also worries me a bit is that I have a competitor who started his website almost at the same time and his keywords are mostly in Top 5 right now, even though our backlinks quantity and ahrefs rating looks pretty much the same.

Also are there any recommended companies who specify on SEO for small businesses?

Thank you in advance

    The only thing that will show up in Search Console are manual actions that Google has inflicted upon your website. It does not show any algorithmic penalties your site may be suffering from.

    All links are not created equal and no tool works as well as the human brain for determining if you really DO have the same quality and quantity of backlinks as your competitor. Likely, his are from more related sites, higher authority sites (or both) and his content may be better than yours, too.

    Keep working on improving the quality of your site, making it better and more helpful than all of the other sites in your niche. It's much easier to get great backlinks when you are the best.

    For an E-Commerce website only backlinks won't work. Social media is the real key to generate leads for e-commerce sites. First set a target audience and plan a killer social media plan accordingly. Also make sure to reduce bounce rate of your site it helps boost traffic.

    That's not how you size up SERP competition. Those audit tools are useless.

    would your site design is purely opted for business than also it get effects. Try to get some quality backlinks through PR. Do check the content quality of your site with your competitors. Guest posts may not work as you are an e-commerce site. Focus on quality content and update your site periodically. Social media works very good, But at the same time you have to make it such a way user attractive. PPC also works well.

    :-) You can further improve your ranking by retaining customers on your website (bounce rate) and increase visitors. These are the 2 main factors that will affect your ranking assuming your on-page and off-page SEO have been done pretty well. Also, there are many ways you can achieve your goals such as blog about your products, create content in FB, post articles and so on.

      Why would you limit advertising a site/page because you want to do SEO for the same page?

      SEO is not the only source of traffic on the web, matter of fact it's a very small percentage of potential traffic.
