Here is the list of few wordpress plugins that can get you more traffic.
This plugin is out of the box SEO tool for your wordpress blog. It allows you to set every aspect of your blog including meta description, meta keywords, title for home page, posts and pages. Not only that but it also allows you to control how the tag and category links are generated. It allows you to have site wide settings and as well as per post settings which makes it even more powerful. This is the must have plugin to help you get your content indexed correctly to rank better in search engines. The better you rank in search engines the more organic traffic you will get.
To get traffic from search engines we also need to tell search engines how to find the content on our blog. To tell search engines we need to have an xml sitemap of our blog. All three search engine giants provide a way to manage how they index your site. You can submit your blog sitemap to the search engines so they can discover and index possibly hidden parts of your blog.
As we all know that Twitter is getting more and more popular everyday and everyone is using to find good content, so if you have good content on your site then you should make it easy for your readers to tell their followers about it. Not only will that help your readers have good reputation among their followers for tweeting good stuff but it will get you more traffic.

WP-Email allows you to add a link to your posts and pages to allow your readers to recommend your posts to their friends. The more easy you make for your readers to recommend an article to a friend the more your readers will tell their friends and the more traffic will come to your site.
