Gordon - I would concentrate on getting some other similar sites to link to you. Since you seem to be selling a service, your goal should be targeted trafic, not just more traffic. See

Also I noticed you're holding a "Win A Painting" contest. The entry requirement is a little strange - "If your friend orders a painting, you and your friend's names will be entered into a drawing to win the painting shown above (sorry, only one of you may win the painting)."

How about simply giving a painting away? Hold more of a sweepstakes? Remember your goal now is to generate interest in your product. Getting your contest listed at and will bring you a fair amount of traffic, but remember to have some way of managing the contest in place (database, cgi, etc.) in case you get flooded with traffic. Contests on another site I administer have worked well for me - see

Good luck!
