After a year of trying to get this page to rank well, I did a co-occurrence study of the sites on other sites that did rank. I picked three common phrases that came up in my study but did not appear on my candidate page.
The site already held that kind of information in healthy amounts, so I added links to the best pages that contained that content - and I used those co-occurring phrases as anchor text.
Ranking went from page 4 to page 1 within a week, with no new backlinks (I already had those a-plenty), no title tweaks and no H tag changes.
