t's a valid question. Yet until Google changes its policies to become more transparent, which might also reassure skeptics that AdWords and AdSense, which have oddly limited reporting capabilities, aren't just two sides of the same ponzi scheme (for why else would one want to terminate legitimate accounts with high monthly liabilities when they're supposed to be making money for Google on each click?)--I will give this answer

Good tutorial on getting traffic to my site.
Getting Traffic to Your Web Site
There are many ways to advertise your site, but the most effective way is "word of mouth." It's free and if people can recommend your site that makes it even more credible.
The more useful and unique you can make your site, the more others will want to bookmark and tell others about it. The biggest mistake people make when building their sites is lack of content.
If your site is for information purposes and you want to reel in the traffic, then you need to start out with at least 30 pages of content and plan to keep building. Give people a reason to return.
The search engines and directories are another great place to promote your site and some of them are still free (Google, for example). See my search engine listing page for tips on how to get listed in the major search engines.
Link exchanges are another traffic-building tool. Find people with sites similar to yours and ask for a link exchange. That just means, they put a link on their site to yours in return for a link on your site to theirs.
Keep in mind it's most beneficial to link up with sites that have similar content. If your site is about jewelry, it won't do you much good to link up to a site that is about soccer.
