There are many ways to do it, such as focusing on SEO to make your blog rank better in search engines, and some other good ways to bring good amount of traffic to your blog readily, 3 most such effective ways to increase blog traffic are:
Write Clear, Unique and Crisp Content
How much ever unique is your product/service, the content or the description you would be using to pass the information must be clear in the sense to easily adopted and understood. The Jargon must be used basing on the target audience, so that audience of all types can easily understand what you are trying to say, and understand the points that you state clearly. For e.g. the language for tips on surgery must be differed from the diction on tips for a facial as both the readers are expected to share different backgrounds.
So, it’s time to study your audience and write your content in such a way that it becomes easy for them to read through your content, and only read through, but also understand clearly your views. If you mix up your content among your readers, it will create a mess, resulting in decrease of returning visitors to your blog.
The content you are going to upload must be out of the box at the same time you should be on your toes to contribute unplagiarized content for the web otherwise, which there is a chance your blog would be come under the claws of spam. There are many tools like plagiarism, content checker online to check the uniqueness of your content. So it’s the best practice that you avoid using copied content in your blog, and write only unique content for standing out of spam activities and increasing blog traffic from search engines. For example, if you are writing a review about any product on your blog, by reading the features of the product from another site, then write about the features in your own words, and not just copy paste the whole thing to your blog.
The online readers are more prone to get bored/drawn back easily. Thus always try to convey your story in a brief and crisp manner rather using not-so required flowery language. For example, if you are informing about any new launch of a mobile device, keep the content focused on its features, expected/available price and its availability. The reader would not be expecting more than these information in the article. You can add its comparison, good and bad and its probability to make its position in the market in the follow-up article. By this way, readers will feel happy to get comprehensive article without feeling boredom.

Having that in hand, opt for Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit or any such article submission web portals, to feed your content to the web. It’s obvious to be dubious, why should I submit my already published articles to directories? Well, having published the article in your blog doesn’t mean your content will be reaching millions automatically.
