    Build quality links.
    Your 2k links = little value
    His 100 paid links = a lot of value.
    Start building backlinks to those 2k links you have.

    I am not suprised, it is not just about the quantity of links you have.
    Quality links, article marketing when done right are what you need.
    I have sites with only 30 -40 links on first page.

    If they have authoritative blog post backlinks, they can outrank 1000s of spammy, crap backlinks. So get backlinks from blog networks as well if you're serious about outranking them and it's financially viable.

    Having all contextual links will hurt more than help now. I would throw in some straight up url links with no anchor at your site and make sure the content in which you place them is relevant to the keyword you want to rank for.

    Also how often do you update content, throw a blog on your site if you don't already one. Do you have any outgoing links to similar but not exact sites?

    Run daily social bookmarking campaigns if you have the time or money, pepper in some from every site you can grab. An associated content article is a great backlink and if you live in an area you can get upfront payment then it makes the effort even sweeter.

    So many things that you probably haven'ttaken advantage of its really hard to say ya know.
