Is the submission to SE's the primary way to drive traffic?
Are banner exchange programs worth-while? (traffic drivers?)
What free (or mimimal cost) stats programs are available to anaylze stats? I have access to raw log files, so is there a program I can pipe them through to get some anaylsis?
BTW nice looking BP

Se's are still the primary way people find sites -thus, it is a big part of your promotion activities.
Banners - out, way out unless you are getting payed to run them.
Raw logs: WebTrends is nice if you feel it is worth it. After that, Fast Stats and then finally, Analog if you have C compiler access.

That brings up another question...What do people generally charge
for a banner ad on the front page. I know it depends on the
amount of hits the site receives, but what is the price difference between say..1000/10,000/100,000 hits a week?
I just had a look at your site, you've done a nice job with it. I like your "newbies" section in particular.
I've just added [techdesk.com...] to the ODP under Computers: Education: Internet: Help and Tutorials: Internet Beginners Guides
The directory updates each evening so you should see it there tomorrow.
Welcome to the forums.
All depends upon the business segment and your audience. Some high profile net sectors like Real estate and Auto's can still command $30-$50 per cpm (a thousand banners). Most others in the entertainment sectors are lucky to grab $2 to $5. It also depends on if you are using your own sales efforts or going through a middle man ad broker like Burst, Flycast, or DoubleClick. They usually take atleast 30%.
