    Traffic for Blog
    1.comment to related blog

    Don’t ever try to spam blogs by leaving comments of little value like leaving one liners like ‘great post’. This will never work and no one will even click on your link.Try to actively participate in the community and build up a bit of a reputation for helping people and you will see a huge jump in your traffic!
    2.Submit Article to Directory
    There are hundreds of directories out there that let you submit your blog to them for free (there are also some paid ones).
    3.Submitting RSS Feeds
    Do a search for RSS Feed Feeder sites that you can submit your RSS Feed to.
    4.Pinging Your Blog
    There are also a lot of sites out there that publish any new content found on the web. By pinging your blog you will also notify these site’s of your new content.
    5.Social Bookmarking
    There are dozens of social bookmarking and web 2.0 sites out there that you can submit your blog posts to. Doing this can be very time consuming though so I suggest using some kind of software to automatically social bookmark your posts for you.
    6.Article Marketing
    It’s fairly easy to come up with new articles because you can just use material from the blogs posts you’ve written. Try to submit your articles to the top articles directories, but try not to double-up on content. Try to re-write your articles a bit to change it up and avoid duplicate content.
    7.Web 2.0 Sites
    This method involves creating a network of web 2.0 sites such as Squidoo, Hubpages, Blogger.com, Wordpress.com, Tumblr.com etc and having them all link back to your main blog.

    Hi in my opinion you have select your category and when ever you submit your blog link so add that link with relevant key word so that is the best option and also sharing this links in social sites and also joint a relevant Group so that is the best process for traffic increasing.

    - Submit it to trafficable social bookmarking sites
    - Publish quality wall posts/ teasers on your profile page
    - Promote your blog on niche related forums and online communities
    - Comment and guest post on niche related blogs
    - Try to make your blog interactive (encourage people to comment on your blog and allow guest posting)
    - You can integrate videos on your blog and promote those videos on different video distribution sites.

    If you mostly have videos & pictures in your blog then I would suggest you promote them on social media platforms. Social media platform will be really helpful for you, promote pictures on pintrest, flickr, etc., and videos on YouTube, Metacafe, etc,.

    The Above idea is Good for Images and Videos sites.

    Search engines likes Text, so for On Page optimization, optimize images names like instead of 1,2,3 give names like my photo, my place picture...

    And share them on relevant image or video sharing sites.

    Have you worked on your SERP? Building backlinks is also an important step when talking about organic traffic! You need to work on Guest blogging, Article and Forum marketing, Social Bookmarking, etc! ;)

    make few videos on ur niche (or copy :p ) and watermark those with ur blog url...post on YT, have a FB page, also G+ n twiter, these days rankings also depends on how much social ur blog is.. and don't forget to keep a "share post" button on ur blog
    these all will help ur blog grow in long term..
