That's actually not unusual. I get a lot of traffic
from sites linking to mine (granted, for the free

Have you submitted the site to the major search engines
You can try having the words and phrases that someone
would use when searching at a SE in both your meta tags
AND in the copy of your page. If you use words in the
meta tags and they aren't on your actual page, many
SE's will ignore them, some SEs index the content on
the page only (not the meta tags). They need to be in
both places. And the most important word (or few) in
your title -- which you seem to have. That should help
the ranking in the search engines.
