What brings traffic? Word of mouth! if they like what they see, they will stay and promote.

Basically anything that you feel confident to speak about regularly, with something new/interesting every time...An original content, with one strong theme and little variations around this theme, updated regularly, with a consistent quality of writing/shooting/other, and a reactive/entertaining feedback to comments and visitors.

Getting few writers together may also be a good thing to get variety over a same topic, like http://indiegames.com/index.html (word of mouth, you see ^^)
...but this is mostly psychological. Check my devlog

As much as I would love to put hentia on my website (with those tags) I can't, because it's mostly unrelated to what's on my website and my parents look at it. -_-

I think the main thing is just to have useful high quality content, and as long as you've got one or two incoming links people will find it and it will spread just because it's a great site.

If you want more unique visitors, you'll have to have other websites link to you. You can do this by blogging about interesting things on a big website for example. People who read your posts and like them, will probably check out your website.

If you want a group of people that keep track on your website and return from time to time, you'll have to do something that keeps them interested. A regularly updates news page or blog will help that for example.

Try to make a list about things in a website that makes you go to them. Or make a list on how you find new websites to visit..

I update my website at least every few days, with new blog updates (well its actualy news) and I'm always working on it when I'm on their. Fixing links, re-designing pages, adding songs, and stuff like that.

Maybe start a Twitter account to post updates on, people can follow you in their news feeds and then they'll visit your website whenever you put up something of interest to them.
