You need more IBL's with your keywords in it. I didn't see many in
google that are from other sites, and the ones that did (mainly
near.co.uk) were not in the hyperlink.

You code is very messy.
The idea of css is that it is on a separate .css sheet.
On your homepage you have only one header tag and that is a bit long,
so the keyword "jewellery" could be weakened by it.
Maybe better to have it as "jewellery by Argenteus"
> I know its a very popular keyword but looking at the inspirals site I just can't see why they are so high up.

No disrespect, but you too do not have many IBLs and the ones that do
(mainly near.co.uk do not have your keywords in the hyperlinks)
Your code could do with a lot of cleaning up
This page for example : http://www.argenteus.co.uk/links-exchange.htm
It littered with un-needed code :
<h1><img src="linksx.jpg" width="149" height="17" alt="Exchange links
and pointless code like ..........
which is on your homepage
Also, keep your links related to your site. I was not expecting to see
Alaskan Adventures on a jewellery site.
Maybe opencube.com have reported you for using an unregistered version
of their dhtml effect ;)
You do need more IBLs from *related* sies with your keywords in them.

How many times have you submitted your site to them ?
5 months is nothing, you can wait years.
One of my sites took about 8 months and the other is still waiting to
be listed and thats after 14 months.
