as I understand this term, means visitors to your site. So when you say drive traffic, it simply means you drive visitors to your site. Why is this important? For me, it is important because we want our posts to be read. We don't intent our site to be hidden from the reader. At the first place, we write blog posts because we want them to be broadcast to all. Another thing, if you use your site to generate income like through sponsored posts, having good number of visitors would make you have an edge to get some opportunities to the advertisers. The logic is, advertisers want to promote their products/services, so the more visitors you drive daily, the more the products/services are exposed and more likely to be purchased. Thus, advertisers would choose you to blog for them. Not only traffic would be of help in making money. It is also useful to get a page rank from Google. So why Google? Google now is the leading search engine. If you get a page rank, it means you are more visible to the search engine. I think it boosts the morale of every blogger. Having a page rank is tantamount of labeling you as a blogger with rightful authority. And most of all, driving more visitors means more chances of knowing other people and gaining friends. You can try these sites to drive traffic to your blog.
