I know there's a whole bunch of articles online about various methods of getting a blog popular, but I don't just want to hear 'SEO'. I'd really appreciate a more detailed explanation how to get a Wordpress blog from scratch to getting a decent amount of real traffic (ideally without paying out huge amounts of cash, either). Is it true that most of the work is done for you with Wordpress and as long as you're providing good content, no further work is needed? Or is the only true way to getting a successful and popular blog to use other methods? Please help me since I'm a little confused and overwhelmed by the whole thing.
