Hello guys.

Two months ago I changed my domain to HTTPS and in the last month a competitor joined the "war" for the number 1 position for a keyword that I have always been the first result.

Last month I noticed that I had lost the #1 rank and then started working again in this keyword (creating content, doing a lot of backlinks with the respective keyword) and something strange started to happen: everyday the ranks for my competitor and me changes. I wake in the morning at #1 and when I go to sleep I find myself at #3.
Even during the day the ranks are changed and sometimes I go down even further, sometimes hitting #5 in keywords that in the worst scenario I was the #2.

I've gained a lot of backlinks in the the last week and doing a lot of work but that seems not to work properly (here, "work properly" means I become the #1 and then stay there like forever).

Is something happening with Google these last days? There is a way to improve my ranks doing others actions than the ones I am used to?

If you need more information or something sounded a little bit confusing, feel free to ask.

Thanks in advance.

I'm positioning here and I'm fluctuating a cluster, goodness, however it turns really the positions around me are additionally fluctuating, prepare to have your mind blown. It's not you. It's the SERP. It's Google. Try not to point the finger at yourself for this.

Thanks for your answer, Dam.

Unfortunately, mostly of the time my competitor is always #1. He is just using some backlinks on sidebars and became the fist result.

I did a lot of keyword research, my links are directly on content (in another blogs and sites). I do not know what to do more. I cant let them be the #1.
