Besides creating good content, what specific actions should I take in order to improve traffic for my blog?
Is it important to sign up in Technocrati, Finclu, Delicious or other similar.

I'm getting under 50 people daily and my blog has a year and half almost.

Does your blog rank on google for any keywords? Do you know where the 50 people per day are coming from? Any type of analytics will help you figure out the best places put your energy to begin to increase traffic.

It's about travel information on specific region in latinamerica. Blog is PR3, most traffic comes from google search so yes, ranks ok for some keywords (different googles around world) around 90% of traffic.
Some 5% from blogger search. Some 2% from some few sites linking. And around 1% from other blogs or perhaps a wiki.

However I get 0 traffic from Yahoo, MSN or others though site should be indexed there (I think it is on both).

Blog is primarily english.

30% of Yahoo traffic is usually came from the online retail sites and
another is the Yahoo Answer that gives lead generation and if you give the best answer to a question you will get a fair amount of traffic.

I get 0 from Yahoo so something will be betther than now.

You mean posting your url in answer text body? or as a source? isn't that spam?

And link posted is really old. Says a lot of things are not valid anymore...

I would recommend getting involved and participating on the major social media/web 2.0 sites like Stumbleupon, MyBlogLog and Digg to name a few. At the very least you'll be able to network with some other webmasters in your niche and get some new ideas...

I agree. I added Digg, stumbleupon, furl...etc. about a week ago. It's too soon to see the results, but I will see what happens!

Social Bookmarking or social media site is a great place on which you can promote your site and invite more users to view your site. It is not trading links socially but promoting the company products and services through your related blog.

Are you actively COMMENTING on other blogs. It can help to leave thoughtful comments on other blogs that are in your topic area/vertical and see how that goes. It usually helps.

I'm starting but what's the point? Do you mean suggesting your own url in comments (looks a little spammy)
or you mean putting url in your username? if so, I don't think that brings you traffic... do you click usernames in blogs?

People do click usernames in blogs if they are interested in the person. Their interest will come from the thoughtful comments you make on other peoples blogs. Not only that but the owner of the other blog may come have a look at your blog posts and may even link to them if he or she finds them interesting. Networking helps tremendously in building blog traffic.

When all else fails?

Just unplug your askimet.

That might speed things up a bit.

I think you should focus on content and delivering it with consistency, if you have the basic SEO in place, have an attractive topic and socializes much with the blogosphere, traffic will trickle down slowly.There is no overnight thing at it. It isn;t very exciting as well.
