    1) Build the most useful site you can build. Make your pages more useful than the pages on other sites that they compete against.
    2) Target the phrase free wordpress themes with your homepage using SEO.
    3) Target longer tail keywords with other pages on your site. Make sure the keywords you target are attracting people in the same audience as your homepage. other words, if your homepage targets "free wordpress themes" then I would target similar but longer keywords with other pages like "best free wordpress theme for a small business" or "20 best free wordpress themes for niche blogs"
    4) Go find places where your audience is spending time online right now. Figure out how to introduce your website to that audience on those sites. That might mean buying advertising on that site. That might mean joining a forum and becoming an active member there. Use your imagination on how to get noticed.

    That should get you started.

    Try telling your friends and family about the website and ask them to share with other people as the best way to do marketing is by word of mouth.

    I preach social media promotion a lot and this is another one of those posts because social media promotion is going to help you get traffic for your site. Since you are in the Wordpress niche then social media is going to be even more important for you since there are a huge amount of Wordpress users that use social media as a way to promote their Wordpress sites.

    Start a good social media campaign and make sure to use the hastag in front of the word "Wordpress" so that people searching for Wordpress stuff will see it at the upper part of their searches.

    Cheers, Dean.

    To help get more traffic to a WordPress niche blog website it is probably going to be a good idea to join as many WordPress related forums and post topics on all forums that you are active on both here and elsewhere about WordPress related topics.

    Try to help out other people and that can gain trust and a following and possible traffic.

    Helping with replies on the official WordPress sites to questions that other WordPress users is also another way to help generate some traffic but on some you will probably have to use an ID that is related to the domain your blog is at in order to get the best benefits. ;)

    There are numerous ways that work out:
    1)Try using linkedin for lead generation.
    2)Try writing blog posts on topics peoples are searching for. Then share the links in social media.
    3)Email marketing to get in touch with people who have shown interest in your product in the past.
    4)Offer freemium services for a short period to build trust.

    Hope it helps!
    Cheers

    You could try buying private label right eBooks, then giving them away for free to build your list. Build it until you reach your goal. Some of these come with a squeeze page that you could promote to the masses, then have an auto responder attached to collect leads. I hope this helps.

    to go further, it is not easy to SEO a website at this time on first page of Google.
    Of course is, it depends on the competition of your keywords and what is having on your site. :)

    Thanks Emmanuel, I found an SEO service provider that can guarantee me page #1 on Google in one year. I have time to wait since I own the website. 100 back links a month and long tail keywords to help rank the website. We will see. :)

    I am just curious how much did you spend for this service? are keywords more competitive?
    Take care with low quality backlinks, your website can be ranked in short time but it can hurt your SEO in the future.

    If you follow these simple step then you have really drive traffic to your new website or blog.

    Write more:- Studies show that the more often you update your blog, the more traffic it will receive. Google gives higher priority to websites with fresh content, so if you want to get more attention from the search engines, update your blog at least twice a week.

    Promote with social media:- Share each new blog post on your social media networks, including Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest. If you spend time cultivating your networks and share great content, social media sites can become some of your top traffic sources.

    Write better titles:- The titles for your blog posts are almost more important than the content itself. That's because titles help potential readers decide whether they should click and read more. Pay attention to the article titles you see on magazine covers. They entice readers with promises and solutions. When you do the same, your readership will increase.

    Know your niche:- While you may be interested in sea life, exotic travel destinations, Little League baseball and weight loss, you'll confuse your audience if your content doesn’t follow a clear theme. Decide who your target audience is, what they want to read and what specific messages you want to convey.

    Include photos:- Studies have shown that photos in blog posts boost readership. Not only does a photo make the post more visually appealing, but you can also include keywords in the Alt Image tag on the photo, boosting search engine optimization (SEO) for your site. Keep in mind that you can’t just pull any photo from Google because you risk violating copyright laws. Instead, locate royalty-free images from a site.

    Incorporate keywords:- Speaking of SEO, keywords are at the heart of SEO. One of the easiest ways to generate more traffic to your website is to ensure that every page on your site has a keyword strategy. So for each blog post you write, choose one key phrase that you believe readers would use to find that post. Next, incorporate that phrase into the title of the post, the headline on the page, within the content on the page at least two times, in a featured image on the page and also as part of the page link.

    Incorporate links:- When you mention another company’s product or service in a blog post, include a link to that company’s page. Not only does Google like to see outbound links on your site, the company you mention may also notice your post and link back to you. Plus, readers appreciate it when you provide resources to make it easier for them to find the things they're looking for.

    Add social sharing buttons:- If you have good website or Blog At the top and bottom of your blog posts, make sure you include social sharing buttons for Twitter, LinkedIn and the other major social networks. Make it easy for readers to spread the word.

    Invite guest contributors:- When others write for your blog, you add more content that you didn’t have to write yourself. As a bonus, those contributors will also share with their networks and may ask you to write for them, opening up new readership avenues for you.

    Add video:- Google owns YouTube, which is one of the many reasons that videos can drive more traffic to your site. Supplement the written content on your blog with short videos that are informative and entertaining.

    Invest in the promotion:- If you believe your audience is spending time on Facebook, occasionally invest in sponsored posts. For as little as $10, you can “Boost” a post and increase its reach significantly.

    Write guest posts:- Locate other blogs that reach your target audience, and offer to contribute guest blog posts. If the site has a substantial audience, you can bet that readers will, in turn, want to engage with more of your content.

    -> Make your content easy to read by using plenty of subheads, bullets and numbered lists.

    -> Promote your blog in your email signature and your bio in any online profiles.

    -> Make it easy for blog visitors to subscribe to your RSS feed.

    -> Invite readers to leave a comment, then respond and let them know you’re engaged.
    :Crazy:I hope you understand, if yes don't forget to click thank button. :Alego:

    Something must be working. The service is only 30 dollars a month. Within 6 days, I was averaging 300 visitors a day, now 1 week later I've tripled it. The keywords are related to my content of blog post and images.
