Any suggestions on building traffic for a new site? I've read a lot, however, not exactly sure how to do it with Facebook, Twitter and such. The new site is getting hit several thousands of times a day via Google and Bing, but still very few visitors.

Any help or guidance would be GREATLY appreciated.

Do you just meant that only the bots are visiting or do you mean that people are finding your site from the SERPS and promptly hitting the back button?

There is no "one size fits all" solution for promoting a web site. My own view is to stop thinking of the site as an entity in its own right, think of the underlying business proposition. How is information disseminated within your subject area? That will vary by topic. You may want to post on some relevant forums, you may want to take ads in specialist print magazines. If there is an underlying b&m business then add site details to your classic channels.

For the site itself check how key searches are coming up in the SERPS, if they are not ranking (given sufficient time for the site to establish of course) then look at the content and see if you have the right words on the right pages. If your site is about a rock band then the home page should say that it is for a band playing rock music. If its for a football club then it should say "football", and preferably which of the many versions of that game it plays.

Traffic is mostly the bots. GBs of data they are apparently indexing. Not sure how long that is going to take to convert into traffic from humans. Then I need to figure how to generate traffic from stumbleupon, facebook and twitter. Which I do not really know how to do?

Social Media do not get you traffic you can build the websites popularity instead.

As a general rule I agree but will vary according to niche. For example if Compworld is running an entertainment based site there will be more value in social media than for one selling widgets.
