    It returns for the exact phrase high, but for the individual keywords your site fails. Try editing meta tags to also contain those phrases as individual words comma separated. Also try to add more keywords within your page as well, individually or with the phrase as a whole.

    Write more articles and distribute them with those 3 keywords as the anchor text

    Also name any images with your keywords e.g. sellmesomething.gif

    You could also go for some social bookmarking with your keywords as tags and also use keywords in anchor text wherever possible.

    There aren't so many people who is searching for exact phrases (keyword in quotations) and the result you are seeing when ranking #5 is for the exact hit. But you are indexed for that key phrase so with some more links, some articles and maybe you should set up some blogs too with links pointing to your site, you stand a good chance to get some good listings for the search term without quotations too.
