Be Patient And Traffic Would Along
This is one of the 18 Common Blogging Mistakes That Kill A Blog.You would feel like you're wasting your time, but there would come a breaking point when your blog's traffic would skyrocket. That's when you're articles start to get noticed by search engines.
DON'T Get Demotivated In The Traffic Variations
Traffic variations was one of the factors that demotivated me along my blogging road. We all know that we wont get a straight graph for the traffic rise. There are always those odd days when the traffic is down. Some times it even gets to 50% of the average traffic that you get!
Specially on weekends. The traffic is dead low. Though it would vary for every other blog but that's the trend that some times demotivates a blogger. But again, as the traffic rise is 'exponential', you would always get to see those 'GREAT' moments when there would be a sudden in flow of traffic.
So the key is that be focused and don't get demotivated by the traffic variations.

Social Media Presence
Growing your blog through social media (Facebook, Twitter and Google+ etc) is a vital Traffic building strategy. Though the first aim of a blogger is to generate traffic through search engines, but as the search engines are getting smarter, they have started to integrate social sharing in the search engine rankings.
The more content is liked by people in social media, the more value it holds in the eyes of search engines, specially Google. The new move being Google+ +1 button. Make sure you have lots of +1s on your behalf

Increase Email Subscribers As Fast As You Can
When the reader lands on your blog from search engine for the first time, you could capture him as a email subscriber in your list. Then even if he doest visit your blog frequently, you could still send him the articles (short brief snippets, till jump break) so that he would come by your blog again to read the remaining post.
In that way, you build up your own permanent readership and you no longer remain dependent upon search engines to send you traffic. So the best idea for that purpose is to come up with your own 'eBook', video series, lists of posts, podcast etc.
Give them as a bribe to the visitor and note down their email address in return.
