    Write articles and submit them back to the top article sites with links pointing back to you. Get involved in a blog discussion on what ever site is the most popular for the same niche you are in.

    Try posting relevant comments on other people's blogs in your niche with a link back to your site. I've tried all kinds of things and the only way I found (that worked for me) is to post *meaningful* comments on other people's blogs.

    You might get the attention of the blog owner and he/she might republish your post, or ask you to be a guest writer.

    Good luck!

      I'll second the above. But remember, don't spam other blogs. Find blogs closely related to your own and make comments that provide value to the authors post/blog.

      Many times, if you add value to the authors blog, they will sometimes do the same for yours and you build relationships that stand the test of time...

    I'm a firm believer in the content is king theory. Make sure your taking the time to write content that is truly top-notch. From there you should just focus on submitting your stuff to article directories. A good press release, and press release submission sites have always worked well for me to.

    Make a fan page about your blog. Social bookmark and participate in forums in your niche. You can also do article marketing but remember to do it consistently or traffic will fall off if your blog is fairly new to your readers.

  • You should do a guest post! Find a high traffic blog that accept guest posting. Find a site that you actually like so that you won't get tired of coming back over and over. Make sure that's it is similar to your niche.

    Writing articles for guest post is way more effective than submitting articles to the directories.

    Get started with blog commenting also. Find about 10 blogs you LIKE that is similar to your niche and start commenting on some of the post.

    Don't just leave comment just to leave a comment. Put some thought into it and make sure that it's relevant and helpful. No one word or comments please!

    Second on simplebutcreative's idea... Guest blogging is a great way to do it! All you need to do is find a blog in your niche, contact the owner, and ask if they'll accept a guest post. Many do, because it gives them a temporary break from their own writing!

    When you guest post, you get a link down at the bottom (kind of like in an article directory). That way, if readers like what they see in your guest post, they can head to your site and see what else you have to offer. And, since these people are already reading a blog in your niche, you know they're interested in your topic! But, of course, to get the most out of the opportunity, you have to publish a guest post that's really something special.

    If you're having trouble finding a blog to guest post on, try MyBlogGuest.com (no affiliation, just think it's a cool website). The site offers forums and wanted postings from bloggers in all sorts of niches who are looking for guest posters.

    Write more articles (at least one per week). The more you write, the more chances you have to get indexed in the search engines. Over time this creates more traffic. However, you need to write articles that target two or more keywords (without over-saturating) and the keywords should be in the title. Create a main page that matches up with the keywords you want to target in your domain name. The domain name should be keyword focused. Make it so that your main page always shows up first so that you can get a higher ranking. All the other posts will appear after the main targeted page. You can also add wordpress robot, but I don't recommend doing this until your blog is seeded with a lot of original content first. (10 or more posts) I hope this helps.

      Here is a formula I used to get my latest niche blog to 1,000 unique visitors per day in less than 5 months.

      * 1) Find 100 low competition medium traffic terms using Market Samurai or free Google tool.
      * 2) Write 100 articles and submit 1/2 to ezinearticles...1/2 to your blog.
      * 3) Spin 20-30 of your best articles and submit to a blog network for backlinks (1WayLinks, SEOLinkVine, UAW...just chose one).
      * 4) Put one link in your spun article to related ezinearticle you wrote and one link to a related blog post. Use the anchor text you want each to rank for.

      Within 4-5 months my guess is that you will be at least reaching 500 visits per day with this gameplan. If you have a compelling blog, people will then naturally link to your site...and then your blog will rise as a natural result of people spreading the word.

      Works every time!

    Regard tips to promote your blog,there is a very cool way to promote your blog which will also bring you a lot traffic and build up quality backlinks.

    It is called Blog Carnivals.

    Blog Carnivals are websites that specialize in obtaining excellent post on a particular topic from various respected blogs on the web. They then post it quarterly or monthly in one big carnival.

    Blog Carnivals draw in a lot of traffic; however, you need to submit your blog post early to have a good chance of being selected. If a post from your blog is selected, then it will appear in the carnival with a link back to your site.

    The most popular blog carnival can be found at BlogCarnival.com

    Write keyword rich articles and submit them to the article directories with your signature pointing back to your blog.

    Since your blog is all about friendship, you can create a fan page on facebook and get people to like your page while you also promote your blog via the fan page.

    You can also go to fiverr.com and get some one to send you flood of traffic (5,000) to your fan page for just $5.

    Finally find time to participate in forums and discussion boards.

    It depends how popular your niche is how effective various strategies. Forums are the number one method for smaller niches and guest posting is the number one strategy for larger niches. If your niche is very small try verticals.

    Promote your blog at Yahoo Answers.

    There is another similar website that is also very good and seems to have a more responsible public, even though it’s PR5, while YA is a PR8 website.

    http://www.quora.com/

    You only have to give nice answers to various questions about your topic and post your links in each answer to get traffic.

    At Yahoo Answers you can post your link as your source, under your answer.

    At Quora you should post your link in your answer, as a complementation. Give your answer and then indicate your blog for more information about the discussed matter.

    The best way to get quality links and new readers to your blog is guest blogging. It's just a matter of contacting other bloggers in your niche and asking them if they want a high quality article in exchange for a link in the author bio (or even better in the content but not all blog owners will allow it).

    First, optimise your blog (On Page SEO) and then promote it.

    Promoting blogs until our fingers fall off won't work if your blog can't rank in Google, as the biggest Search Engines.

    IF your blog is optimised, and also promoted, you can sit back and watch traffic flows without promoting hard.
