    Now I'm #2 for a keyword on G, and I wanna be #1 :D
    The #1 site is:
    - aged. almost 10 years;
    - PR 7 with 800+ links shown in link: command
    - gained sitelinks for that keyword.

    My site is:
    - nearly 1 year;
    - PR2 with 8 links
    - has sitelinks with domain-names serp.

    The question is: Can I beat that competitor? and what to do?

    obviously you can beat your competition. You just have to be consistent in building quality contents about your website and builid backlinks also. you can try social bookmarking as well.

    May I know what's the competition for your keyword phrase with quote in google.
    You have certainly did a good job with #2.

    Does that site offer quality content with backlinks?

    It seems that you have some quality backlinks considering the number of backlinks you have and you are #2. So i would say just concentrate on content now related to your niche and compared to the site, which is #1.

    Yes, you can beat it! Just consider these factors:

    1. Quality content - fresh, interesting content. Content is king right?
    2. On-Page Optimization - title tags, h1/h2 tags, meta tags, description, keywords and alt attributes
    3. Off-Page Optimization - social bookmarking, classified ads, press release, blog commenting, link exchange, online groups, article submissions and directory submissions.
