Here are some ways:
1. MySpace through building your friends list and posting bulletins.
2. Active participation on multiple forums. I would suggest IQ69.com. It is a big gaming/entertainment/humor forum where you'll find lots of people to exhange hardlinks and plugs.
3. Linkdumps. There are tons of "linkdump" sites out there. You just need to have a unique arcade game, and dump a link to the linkdumps and in flows the traffic. A single big linkdump site can send you 1000+ visitors alone. If you get lucky and have a few sites plug you, you'll be looking at 3000+.
4. AdEngage or AdBrite. These companies offer cheap advertising to get the word out about your site and you can make a few dollars on their PPC program.

Here are a couple good linkdumps.
You can find these sites and much more at www.alldumps.com
Some of the sites require no content approval such as Slacker Network, Mom's Box, and Bored Town. These sites are often spammed with tons of stuff by alot of people and can quickly push your link to the next page. So expect only a few hundred hits from them. Sites that require content approval such as LOLWOW, Raw Meat, Clumzy and others take awhile for your link to be pushed to the next page. Therefore, making these sites much more valuable and capable of bringing you a few hundred hits to a couple thousand. I've seen some sites get 3000+ visitors in one day from just one site, CollegeHumor.com.

Really? Sounds like fun. But doesn't Google ban for putting your link into link dump? Or am I just making it up?Saul

Yup, check out http://www.thorlinks.com/referres. He's got a plug on CollegeHumor.com and they've brought him 14,000+ visitors and counting.
As for being banned by Google for linkdumping, that's a new one. I don't think I've read that anywhere, but I could be wrong. It's just free advertising? Or does Google consider it as cheating their PageRank system? That I don't know.

Don't mind me, I've just read up on it. It's totally safe. It won't boost your SERPs though, but won't do any harm either, more than that it will drive you some nice traffic. So thanks for the links, I'll be using link dumps a lot from now on, just in time when I need it most.Saul

These link dumps aren't as good as may seem.
They don't seem to accept your links that easy. But I don't get what is the criteria for links.
I mean, ex. lolwow.com, I tried submitting Sonic, it never appeared. OK, maybe it's a bit old news I thought, so I submitted little football game, that supposed to be topical as the World Cup is on. But no, it never appeared either. Instead, they've added a game about bird poop and the site is even with a frame breaker. So what the hell is that? What do they need?
How do you manage to get your links posted? Any tips & tricks?
OK, I got it. You actually have to send them hits as well. It's like a link exchange, and I thought you get traffic for free. This does not go for those without approval, though there's lots of porn and your link gets pushed down quickly.

Yeah, they don't accept your links left and right. They take a look at 'em and see if they're worthy of being posted. Something catchy and unique that will keep visitors coming back. Also, they expect some traffic back. It's how the world works. Nothing's free.
Here's a tip: Some sites have preferred/preapproved accounts where you can post away at will and don't owe them anything. But these are earned by the the people that have these types of accounts. Whether they're friends or have some kind of partnership.
