I had this article that was in 6th position two days ago, of all the articles that are on the first page, mine has the most valuable content, my website speed is the best among them, longer quality content.
Two days ago, I worked even more on my content, updated it added more values to it, it outranked three more competitors, and my article now is at 3rd position.
The article in the first position is a high DA with 730 words with dozens of good backlinks. Since my article has one backlink, I don't think I can't outrank it for the time being.
However, the article in 2nd position has 0 backlinks and has an article that it's 1000 words long.
My article has 2600 words, with 1 backlink and much better content, I'm not praising I'm just stating the facts.
One particular note on that 2nd position competing article is that it has been written in 2017 and their DA is much lower than mine.
Why i can't understand, is WHY the hell can't I outrank that 2nd position article considering the shitty stats it has?
Anybody has an idea why? I'd appreciate getting your expert's opinion.
Thank you very much for your time
