Just be smart enough to post a high quality and attractive ad that will draw attention of the people.Getting traffic to your site with this form of advertising is relatively easy. You are bound to get large traffic from classifieds  because these classifieds websites are regularly spidered by search engine spiders and link to your website through this classifieds websites act as incoming/inbound links,which increase your PageRank.

(2) Other guaranteed ways of driving traffic to you website is to register with some traffic exchange website, but traffic generated will be quantitative not qualitative.Bravenet has a very nice reciprocal link traffic exchange program.

(3) Add your websites to free directories.There are a lot of them available. Even search engine like Google and Yahoo depend on these directories for listing websites since they are very compact and well arranged ,if your website is listed in these directories,then you have a high probability of generating high traffic to your website.Dmoz is one such free directory.
