Competitive analysis is the comparison, between the website I am optimizing, and the website of my competitor or that is ranked highly in search results.

Q15 - What will be your next steps if your SEO methods or technique does not work?

Even though the webpage and website has been indexed well and still not appearing on the first 10 pages of search engine result page, then I would make some changes in page text, titles and description.
If website is not indexed well or dropped from the index, than it might comprises serious issues and re-work might be required. If still not ranked then there may be some other serious issues like bad links, penguin/panda or other Google penalty, crawl ability issues, UI issue etc.

The first step would be to update the previous site with a permanent redirect to new page for all the pages. After that, I will remove the previous content from search engine in order to avoid duplicate content issues.
