I have other sites that are #1 out of 5.9 million, #2 out of 220K, and #3 out of 2.6 million for their kw's, so why is this one (potentially the most lucrative) failing so badly?
The content is good, most of the incoming links have exaclty the right anchor text, kw density is good, so what's wrong?
Maybe I don't have it as optimized as I think, or is there something else going on? It has never ranked well, and seems pretty stable at were it is...

The parenthesized phrase "potentially the most lucrative" seems to me to hold the key to the mystery. My guess is that you are doing nothing wrong, it is just that your competition is doing better.
I may be way off, but you did not give us much information to work on! Not your fault, the TOS do not allow you to.
My site shows allinanchor: 26, allinurl: 7 allintext:26 and has a PR4 yet still shows in the serps as 250.
Maybe I'm missing something here? With other sites my position is usually pretty close to where my allin ranking is?
Any ideas? Anything else I could check to see what the problem is?
Previously banned URL- no, it's mine from a ways back, and before that it had never been registered by anyone, so that isn't it in my case.
If all my sites were bad, I'd suspect my interlinking strategy was too ambitious, but they have all been stable for a long time now, and have good PR. Even my 312 ranked site has PR 4, so it's not like it was black balled or something.
All I can think to do is keep building links. But considering I have as many good links as the page one people, I keep wondering if it is something esle as well...
Actually today the listing dropped to 319... although nothing has changed with it, there must be new listings appearing somewhere between #1 and me to push me down.
Very frustrating. I am at 36 on MSN for the same kw, which is OK, but that really drives no traffic, so it isn't much help either.
I would be surprised if top 10 positions can be achieved for comparably competitive phrases with just 50 or so inbound links.
The kw is competitive for sure, but there are people on page one with 40-50 incoming links- and these are not all links from super sites and DMOZ, etc. that they have- just your standard mixed bags of links a lot like my site has.
I suppose an html page probem is possible, I'll check. But would I have PR4 with something like that?
I recently tried adding more content, around 35 pages or so, all unique stuff- basically html'd articles I had on the subject. Didn't seem to help.
I suppose there is no silver bullet, luckily I have other stuff that makes me money, but just from the number of orders I get from the tiny amount of traffic that does find me, I know this would be a huge winner if I can just get it seen. Sigh.
