There are many things that influence web traffic.

You identify ONLY content as the option to consider to create traffic without making clear the type of traffic you want.

The highest trafficked blogs, from my experience, are directly related to the challenges people face, but only if the writer also reveal vulnerability. (How to do a TED talk is an exceptional tutorial in writing blogs)

Other great blogs will answer the 'What's in it for me?" starter. I would key on what the readeer can SEE as the hook.

Every citizen faces five important decision they must make every year. This is the fabric of which New Years Resolutions are made. You have a 20% chance of a REAL CONNECTION by blogging about any one of these five.  Lead with the question and the 'What's in it for me?" will take care of itself.

Finally, the best traffic must be considered in the context of the highway you choose to travel.  Populations, and the analysis for those in Facebook, Pintrest and those USing Google must be considered separately. Using the same 'bait' for distinctly different fishes seldom works well.

IN closing, the blog post that reveals your voice will garner the most loyalty. Take a look at my most recent question for more details.

The content that people are typing into google at the local level but better. You can reverse engineer this as there is too many tools available. Then write the content to outperform your competition by analyzing how they are on page 1. Every tool is available now and it is very mych possible to bring you the best possible filtered quality local traffic. I looked at your site and you have pretty much 0 organic traffic. It looks like a new php build.

I've been doing "top 10 neighborhoods in XYZ", or "top 5 reasons your home isn't selling in XYZ". Anything along those lines seems to be working very well. I boost the blog posts on social media, and as long as there's a clickable link to my website with lead capture it works great!
