What you really want is targeted traffic and that's what SEO is all about. Targeted traffic is comprised of readers who know exactly what they are looking for. They look for keywords and search engine results are based on keywords found in their indexed content. Targeted readers are also looking for freshness as well as relevance and that's what search engines are aimed to deliver.
The first step for any blogger to take to establish a flow of targeted readers to their blog is learning and applying the use of basic SEO elements, so their posts and blog are actually accessible to potential readers, who use search engines. Provided you learn and apply the basics like using keywords and tags effectively and appropriately, you will receive targeted traffic from potential readers, who typed those same words and phrases into the search engines' search boxes.
The fact that targeted readers already have an interest in the content in your posts means they are likely to read more than one post, more likely to leave comments, and more likely to become regular readers/subscribers, vote your posts up on social networks (tweets & likes & diggs, etc.), and they more likely to recommend your blog to their friends.
