Do a "view source" on that site ...

Do a "view source" on your page and see how many times you have to
page down before you actually see any of the text with your content.
Yours isn't as complicated as some that have nested tables, but
remember that the robots rate text in the order they find it, and
they also rank text according to the tags it has ... if your title
was a H1 instead of a H2 it would carry more weight. And if your
introductory paragraph were immediately after the H1 and not
following the three links ... text immediately after a H1 is assumed
to be important, and you are putting the wrong stuff in the powerful
spot. By the time the robot gets to the intro, it's several paras
away from the heading, so that text isn't as influential as you want
it to be. On the other hand, the words "Add a Link" got some high
points.
