Dear all can some one help me by what source I can increase the traffic to my site. I have launched my site a few months ago but the traffic rate is about zero percent to my site. Help me in this matter if some can.

Practice, practice, practice. Oops, sorry, that answer is for "How to get to Carnegie Hall?"
The high-level answer to your question is: - make sure your site has good content in it - carefully choose your meta information - build quality backlinks to your site - and after continuing to do the above, have patience.
What you can do is do some searches on Google for terms like "Tips on SEO" and "Optimizing your site for search engines." You will have to sort through the sites that are trying to sell you the magic "site traffic" potion; for that, just use the rule of thumb "if it seems too good to be true, it probably isn't/"
Can you give some general ideas on what your site is about? That may help provide you with more definitive ideas.

A fairly crowded field. Start with the basics like title, description, h1 tag on each page. Make sure that you have relevant text, don't hide information that people will search on in graphic. If your services are locality based then make sure that is clear and will come up when people search on the locality. If I wanted somebody to set up my router for me I would want somebody 5 minutes drive away not 5 hours.
Think laterally about where you promote your site and where you pay for advertising. If you are setting up wifi for bars or coffee shops then check out trade bodies, chamber of commerce, local directories etc. Don't be afraid to use traditional media.

If you don't mind me asking a very newbie question. I also have a new blog (with no traffic). When you say post on other blogs with your URL in your sig does that count as a link back to your site? Thanks.
