The secret to getting constant, quality traffic for any site is:
Be willing to spend the time, energy, and money required for intelligent, ongoing promotion and traffic generation.
Not what you were expecting? The truth is there isn't a magic button for continual, high quality traffic.
No single method is failsafe and no solution to the traffic problem is permanent. There are many tactics that work well, and a few very solid overall strategies, but none of them are totally passive or push-button simple.
The best way to approach traffic generation is to be prepared for a long-term commitment. Furthermore, have an open mind and be ready to change directions quickly when something you try isn't working.
Here is a quick outline for a strategy that you can build on:
First of all, design your site to be search engine friendly from the start. Do the keyword research to find the most popular search terms for your niche and include these in your title tags, filenames, internal links, and META tags.
And once your site is complete launch your lifelong quest for quality backlinks right away. Outsource directory submissions and create a handful of articles and/or press releases to build the base for a good network of links pointing to your pages.
Be sure to link to all of your pages, and not just the home page. This will get the search bots and spiders active across your domain and help you get ranked more quickly.
Spend time or money on link generation each month and never stop this part of your strategy.
Also use article submissions and press releases as often as possible. In addition to good links, these methods create extremely targeted organic visitors.
Install a blog on your domain and plug this blog into a huge list of RSS directories. By doing this and posting several times each week you'll begin to get lots of links and visitors from the RSS directories, and of course you can link your articles to your blog posts for improved search position and targeted reader traffic.
