Seems the Newport Beach Houses is getting well. The competition is very strong, but we're in TOP 500, for now.
Good chances, proffesional SEO job! The only problem as I see is that we're a new website and for the newbies is not that easy to compete with the old websites, because one of the Google algorithms prefer the old websites, not the newbies, as I read.
Newport Beach Houses contest finished. There are only 2 prizes - #7 and #8:

Top Ranking Winners for this SEO Contest are as follows:
Nyul - with entry: Newport Beach Houses, ranked #7 on (2011-04-17)
romanzick - With entry: Newport Beach Houses, ranked #8 on (2011-04-17)"
Sure there will be no #1 and even no #2, #3, etc. Look at this opinion that I support:
"It was a good SEO lesson for everyone here - there is no chance with a new website, in 3 months to get on the first place, when there is so big competition "About 2,370,000 results" (according to my Google search right now), PLUS older websites than yours, PLUS higher PR than yours, etc.
That's why I think next time, I am going to join ONLY competitions with a REALISTIC chance to win some good place (prize). For example something with up to "About 500 000 results" or with a fresh neologism like the classical SEO contests which are WITHOUT head start (For example the SEO contest's word is "BLA-BLA-LBA-LBA-234-432" - a completely new "word" and all of the competitors are with even start, i.e. don't need to compete with older websites.)...In these cases is much better and more possible."http://www.promojunkie.com/forum/seo-contest/130945-search-engine-optimization-contest-6-rules-hotc-11.html
Also, look at the ones and only "winners" - N' 7 and N'8 - weren't that late as us AND their PR is higher (!!!!head starts!!!!). So, according to the SEO nature it's quite normal.
P.S. I will delete the Newport Beach Houses html from our website.
