    I think you mean adwords?

    Is this an arcade site? I've owned a few and I've gotten some good traffic through myspace and stumble, but if you're really serious about traffic I would suggest hiring someone to create a flash game.

    A decent game will run you about $150-$200. Just get your logo plastered all over it and submit the game to a crapload of other arcade sites. I've gotten my best traffic this way. If it's a great game, you'll make the money back and then some if you monetize your site properly. I know you mentioned you don't have a lot of cash to invest, but time=money and the amount of time you'll spend promoting an arcade site with other methods really isn't worth the effort in my opinion.

    There's a flash site full of premade applications that are only a few dollars each.
    Code:
    flashden.net

    Couple tips here

    1. make i sure that your site is not blocked by schools

    2. start little competitions if you can spend oney on adwords then you can spend 3$ for high scores per week

    Thats it for now

    but trust me those two methods are guranteed money makers with teens in school i know since im one of them :)
