My earlier article 16 Different Link Building Strategies is a good introduction to this one so I recommend at least skim reading it. This article highlights two methods of increasing targeted traffic to your blog and links as well.
The value of a website from search engines point of view varies according the number of incoming links from external websites with good PageRank . Link building is an “off page’ SEO strategy and refers to the number of links pointing to your site. These links help your site to gain PageRank and perform better in search engine results.
Writing articles and submitting them for mass distribution is focused on getting anchored backlinks. Write a comprehensive pillar post comprised content that will be of timeless value to your readers. Deep link to your earlier articles in your new one using optimized anchor text. Then submit that article to sites that specialize in mass distributing of articles to thousands of directories. Your article will be indexed by Google and the result will be multiple anchored links pointing to your blog from that article.

That’s not to mention that if you comment on “do-follow” blogs you will also get a backlink to your blog.
