I dont know is this the right forum but I would like to know one thing if somebody could help. Grammar errors may occur in this text.

So, I would like to know why some pages have got higher place in google search results than others. I have a travel site, and google ranks a few pages much higher than others. Pages' structure are similar: title tag, h1-captions, main keyword density in a body text, alt texts etc (of course a different destination on every page). And there are not more external links to the pages that have got higher position in google.

I don't know why some pages get much higher than others. And the competition is nearly same in every keywords (places' names like paris or rome).

I write in finnish, thank you for help.

Same quantity doesn't mean same quality, anyway there is no way for you to find the real number of external links taken in consideration by Google for a website.

All of your pages could be SEO'd to the same degree, but relative to your competitors, some may fare better than others.

Your rank also depends on the focus of your website. If you have more pages focusing on Paris than Rome then Paris will probably rank higher on your website.

1. Keywords used on pages of your site have a different popularity.
2. Internal links (site maping) have action on Google page rank.
3. Google page rank have action on place in google search results.

If you want to understand how is it work, read more about SEO.

in my point of view, Google treates the contents by seeing their orignality and offcourse their uniquness. There is a possibility that the pages with Higher positions are having better optimization (keyword frequency, density, anchoring, text formation, proper html validation, etc), one more reason that make some sense, that the pages with higher positions are having quality inbounds.
