There are three things that are very fundamental to your traffic avalanche. They are high value content, incoming links and ever-growing content. Every method out there only attempts to do any, some or all of these three things.
It is a great idea to set out building a site that has high value content. People won't read trash. If they get to your site by mistake, they'll leave as quickly as they can. And guess what? The search engines have a way of finding out and that will plummet your ranking.
High value content on its own will help you get unsolicited incoming links. Webmasters in illustrating a point in an article often point or link to another site. Check those sites. They are usually high value content sites.
Build links in other ways like submitting to article directories, niche directories and general directories. When (Not if) you use article directories, ensure you always submit high value content. If you submit trash the better directories will not accept it. And for those that will accept it, you'll not get much from it.
If you submit high value and tasty content, webmasters will like to pick your article. That means more exposure and links.
Finally, don't stop adding fresh content. That's the philosophy behind blogs. But, please, don't just post trash in the name of a blog. Maintain the principle of high value content only.
And in line with fresh content, there are pages that may go stale. This happens on information that have become outdated. It is a good idea to update. The choice to replace the old content or add an update is entirely up to you. But don't leave it like that if it has been overtaken by events.
If you do these diligently, you'll look back in a few months and be amazed at what you've achieved.
