You can advertise your blogs with the blogs with huge traffic which are under your niche. Do this only if you have low traffic and if your blog is new. You can use Google Adwords and other advertising networks to get a targeted audience.

If you have a section on your website that is especially popular with a new audience, such as podcasts, you can advertise that section. Nowadays, there are various companies that can help you promote your podcasts on the blogs of renowned content creators as well as YouTube channels. Suppose you have recorded a series of informative podcasts; perhaps you would like to advertise on Bill Maher YouTube channel or website. In this way, you may be able to reach a large section of the audience that supports Bill Maher.
4) Social Media:
Social Networking sites like Facebook, Google+, StumbleUpon, Digg etc can be the source for unlimited traffic. Get more Facebook, Twitter, Google+ followers.
