I'm fairly new here as well. I have been experiment with different ways to earn traffic.Usually, social networking. I find groups that are interested in the hubs that I produce and I post one maybe two to the community per day while I also interact with the members there. I recently wrote a hub on how to start really making the most of your hubs. If you want you can check it out http://hubpages.com/community/The-Basics-How-to-wr... .
Good luck and let me know if there is anything that I can do to help you!
