    Use good quality posts that are rich in keywords you are targeting. I suggest posting your blog to reddit and tumblr as well as Pinning it to Pinterest. If you use Video (Youtube) embedded in your blog it will help you with Google ranking

    For my blog I go to other blogs that are in my niche and reply to their blog post. I use my blog link on forum signatures, I submit my blog to directories, My blog post I submit them to my twitter.

    There's a post someone did with the many ways of how to drive traffic to you site. I remember there's about writing an ebook to submitting to social media site and more but I can't seem to find it

    One great way to send traffic to a blog is using Facebook. I would suggest to create a FB page and post on it links to your blog posts. You can provide a magnetic title to your FB page post and add the link to your Blog post.

    If you are willing to spend some money, you can boost your FB page posts. This is great as your traffic will be very targeted. (if you define a good FB post target though).

    Hope this also help.

    To your Success!!

    Even in news there are certain news that draw more attention than the other news. For e.g celebrity news, politics, sports and controversies in these can pull lot of visitors by posting link to your content on your social media accounts. SEO will also help.

    Make a Facebook page for your blog and have the blog posts automatically post with the featured image to the page.

    Some themes (like Thrive and Prostyler as examples) do this automatically but there are plug-ins out there if yours doesn't.

    Then, for a few bucks, you can start building your page - and blog - audience through advertising the Facebook posts.

    Make sure you have something on your blog to get people to subscribe to an email list as well.

    Well it sound like your going for organic traffic. Hopefully you have webmaster tools set up so you can see what is happening.

    You can do facebook re targeting, you can use solo ads and even re target to those people...

    WordPress has a very good social media structure, I'd make sure you set up Twitter, Google+ and Facebook accounts and connect them to your WordPress site.

    When you make new posts you can then have it post to these platforms to your accounts, over time you will create followers, the key is to keep posting good content that gives value. This isn't an over night traffic boost but is a good start.

    This also helps with SEO, Google will monitor these social signals and rank your posts accordingly.

    For traffic,

    I like several approach's, first is to find the big blogs in your niche and read the posts and then make good comments--not spam--by doing it this way you have a better chance of them "sticking" which can drive traffic back to your blog for a long time to come.

    Another way of doing this is to set up a google alert with your main keywords and then when you get an alert--post a good comment.

    Find some of the most active forms in your niche and if they allow sig's use this to drive traffic back to your blog.

    Again, just like blog commenting--write good answers to peoples questions--do not sell.

    Lastly, get out there on social media--meaning set up accounts with places like facebook, pinterest, LinkedIN, Twitter, reddit, etc.,

    Interact with people on social media--and this will help drive traffic back to your blog.

    I'm not sure how plugins will help drive traffic?

    Make sure you're building links from other sites in your niche.
    Start networking on social media.
    Keep coming up with good content.

    What do you mean by you put content 'daily' from a news site? Are you creating your 'own' content or scraping someone else's?

      It means getting traffic from Social Media sites. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest to name a few. A lot of times this comes from engaging with people in conversation marketing. You get to know them and converse and they eventually see you as a solution to a problem they are having. It is a social way to grow your business and this type method is leading the pack. Youtube drives a lot of traffic if your video gets shared on other social sites.

    Facebook ads (and social sharing in general) seems like your best bet.

    Here are some tips to drive traffic to your WordPress blog:

    1. Use the right keywords on your articles.
    2. Always update your blog with fresh and 100% original content.
    3. Use Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites to make a page/account you can use to promote your blog (you can opt for the paid one too)
    4. Build an email list and invite people to subscribe to your blog.
    5. Use third party methods such as forum posting and guest posting.

    Good luck! Wishing you success.

    Content is alway the king when you are blogging.. If you can produce fresh and unique content on a daily basis and focusing on long tail keywords then you'll be fine. Just focus on writing good and quality content for your readers and not for the search engines, they'll follow later.

    One of the things I do is make sure I connect my social media accounts to my WordPress website, you can do this by going into your settings and clicking "Social" which then allows you to connect Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media sites to WordPress.

    Not when you create new posts it will auto publish to these sites, you can select which ones it goes too and even change titles. For example, if you want your post to go on twitter you want to make sure you are using correct hashtags to get the best exposure.

    I use this on one of my video sites I used to pull Youtube videos, works best with Twitter as if you use the right hashtags you can get decent traffic and also build up a good following.

    You are also getting good social signals to your site, this, in turn, will help SEO, you can go one step further and set up a YouTube channel but that depends on if you are into video creation.

    Long as you are getting out content of value the traffic will increase, make sure you give your viewers a reason to share, news is easier to share then most things so that will also benefit your site.
