Indeed, making a site generate less traffic is very important i think.

A good solution would be to use a transparent proxy between the
'internet' and the web server. All requests will be serviced via
the proxy, which will be able to cache large amounts of data from
the server.

This solution takes the load off the server, and it allows you to
lessen the hits and manage them in an efficient way.

Just keep in mind that a transparent proxy wont help if you
are serving dynamicly generated pages and/or SSL which
have a no-cache property.

This solution is also quite quick to install and setup, all you
need is Squid (its in the ports collection).
