    Getting traffic to a site is a broad strategy. In most cases, with a blog you should install and configure an SEO plugin. Optimize your home page and pages. Whenever you want to blog, find keywords relevant to your topic and add to the keyword tag. Other method is by ranking your blog on the top of the search engine, writing quality content and submitting to top web 2.0 sites, quality press release submission among others.

    Is your blog crawled and indexed regularly by search engines?

    How do you want to get traffic? Will you pay for ads, will you share it in social media or do you want organic traffic driven by search engines?
    If last, how will search engine know your blog exist?

    Wow, a whole day and still no traffic? Nope, may as well just quit now.

    Rome was, as they say, only built in a day.

    I'm saying you won't see any results in one day, and very likely even in one month. Just keep adding quality posts to your blog, and do a bit of keyword research and onsite SEO, and you'll get there eventually.

    Write quality content on your blog.That's the first and best thing you can do for ON page SEO,only with proper Keyword Research.titles and h1 ,alt etc tags are important.
    Facebook, Twitter, StumbleUpon, Squidoo, Hubpages, BlogEngage, SocialAdr etc for OFF page SEO.If you do all I suggested, traffic will come.. naturally.

    To get some positive feedback,you better make your content visible to search engines, share it to your social network sites and to some other blogs.

    op since you are using wordpress i would download the squirly plugin. it will answer all your questions about on page seo and it will teach you how to optimize each article you put out. look to social media (faceboook twitter stumbleupon) for extra traffic!

    Obviously you haven't done your homework (got informed about one of the most important things) before you made a site with a few posts. Sit and read BHW for a few days, cause here you can find some great post about making traffic. Some guidelines you should follow (if you have money and want to invest):

    1. Pay Per Click
    2. Pay Per View
    3. Pay Per Text
    4. Media Buy
    5. Contextual Pop Ups
    5. Retargeting
    6. Domain Traffic

    If you're for a free variant:

    1. Social Media
    2. Article Sites
    3. Video Marketing
    4. Answer Sites
    5. Offline Marketing
    6. Forums
    7. Guest Blogging
    8. Search Engine Traffic

    Keep adding quality contents and get back links from good authority sites. You will get good traffic by doing social promotions as well. Good luck!

    It will take time to get ranked, once you posted your article ping it to search engine, so that your post will get indexed at the earliest. Rather than worrying about traffic jus focus on creating great articles, at the same time build social profiles and share your blog contents. Social media will bring you more traffic in due course.
