If content is king, howcome a blog with almost no content ranks 1st at SERPs?

I'm trying to rank for a highly competitive (advertisor) niche keyword and a blog with almost no content (single post, 373 words, unreadable content for human beings, several non-working pictures and one ad, and %18 keyword density!) ranks 1st for this keyword. This blog has the keyword in its url and published 15 days before mine. My blog has also the keyword in my url, 6 posts with unique content (300-500 words each with pictures, % 3-%4 single keyword density). The blog with no content ranks 1st and mine ranks 22nd for this keyword, howcome this is possible?
