Welcome to WebmasterWorld, qmaster!
This topic is very grand and there has been many discussions here at WebmasterWorld on the issue. I think it would be worth your time if you did a quick search of the site [google.com] and read up on some of the threads on interest.
Best of luck! :)

First rule of traffic building is write a lot of articles.
Second rule of traffic building is write more articles.
Third rule of traffic building is build relationships with other sites in your subject matter. Then write more articles.

You could try a banner exchange program. They are not all equal, however, so take care. If you sticky me I can recommend a good one which I have used and still do on occassions.

|I leave tracks of the domain wherever I go that traffic stays the same. |
Link dropping can often be interpreted as spam, or if you're dropping it in the wrong places can actually get you ignored. See previous post - build relationships is not the same as link dropping.

I heard someone saying that to increase traffic from SEOs one has to make sure that any two pages are not using same meta description and/or title.
What is the rule of thumb about this?

Google up a search. Look at the description in the results. Now go to the page and view source. If they use a description tag, you will see it's word for word identical.
Using the same title and meta description indeed will only index one of those pages. Most call this a "duplicate content penalty" but if you think about it, Google is trying to make sure one page doesn't flood results, so it only displays one of those results even if they are all very different. By using the same title tag and meta description, in essence you are telling Google all your pages are the same.

Building relationships takes a long time and a lot of energy however...and they may not even be around in a year or two.
