    If you want to get traffic on your site, build more back links to your blog and post unique articles.

    Thanks

    Offsite SEO is very easy to do and its not rocket science. It deals with back links building and you can do that through forum posting.

    links and inner linking.
    Inner linking is pretty big and often forgotten. I'm talking about linking new posts to past quality posts.

    If you don't know the trick off site, you should focus onsite first. There isn't really matter if you do offsite optimization while your onsite is sucks. Got some plugin like easy wpseo, it will guide you how to do onpage SEO.

    If you place the links on Home page as permanent it doesn't move to inner pages as compared to normal blog posts. So if you want traffic try permanent blog posts.

    I've done lots of hand (ie not automated bookmarking) and again and again Digg comes up on searches of my posts keyword. Push digg for a starter

    You can simply ping each of your blog posts if you really are worrying about off-page seo optimization. Another thing, you can also link to your blog posts by blog commenting, instead of the homepage.

    off page work includes below mentioned activities..
    -directory submissions
    -social bookmarking
    -articles submissions
    -blog posting
    -blog commenting
    -forum posting... etc...

    yes there are different types of tools available online for every off page activities but i suggest not to use any automated tool as they cause you spam prob and you may penalize in future.. instead of that i suggest you to do organic submission in every activities and you may get more traffic and back links as well. As wordpress itself very popular and SEO friendly, you may easily get good ranking and good traffic for your blog.

    and for back links for each post..
    create RSS feed and try to get more and more subscribers for you blog and your every post will promote automatically..

    good luck..

    The most effective links are in context links that you get from articles particularly if they're from private high PR sites. If you have the budget I would join build my rank who have a quality network although it's time consuming. If not try some of the networks on BHW.
