Hello Guys i have a tech blog and i have been blogging for about 4 months now. I get 150 unique visitors a day. I have tried lots of promotion methods but the number simply not increases. I use Weebly Site builder to power my blog. Can anyone Suggest me how long does it take to get good traffic to a blog. I write at least one post per day. I am looking for a target of 500 unique visitors a day. Any Suggestions?

I think the key to building any kind of traffic is networking. There are so many ways to network but a few ideas are as simple as blog roll. Invite people to swap links (or small graphic banners), you'll link to them, if they link to you. Comment on other blogs, and make sure you reply to comments that you get on your own site. Place a link to your blog in your email footer (signature area). If you are on blogs or forums and you have an option to enter your user name...let it be your blog url. Example: My Blog.com You can space it out, it looks nice and it's puts your url in ever comment you make.
Share your stories. If you see a post on a website that you'd like to post on your site, in part or in whole, link back to that person. If they pay any attention to their traffic they'll see you shared traffic and might return the favor. Just make sure you always give credit to your sources!
User your social networks. Have your posts automatically update to twitter, facebook and the like and post often.
Give your readers choices. Allow them to subscribe via email or RSS feed. You don't have to make it a full RSS feed either. If your emails and RSS feed are half posts, it gives the opportunity for someone to click a link and end of right back on your blog if they see something they like.
That should get you started, it's just a few ideas off the top of my head. It's worked for me and my blog, I get well past your goal daily.

There is 1 way to get hundreds of thousands of unique views a day, reverse engineer a new form of DRM. It will get on digg and reddit rather quickly.
other than that, you need interesting and unique content.
Randomly posting your link on other peoples site will at most get your site either hacked or DOS'ed
PS popular blogs generally have primary sources of information, for example suppose a new device comes out and you happen to buy it, if you are a early adopter and you do a review that is in depth and demonstrates the functionality and flaws, you will get a ton of views.
For example when I was looking for microphones and the blue microphone yeti came out none of the professional sites had a indepth review, all they had was a article based on a press release from the company (essentially 1000 words of 100% BS)
a random blog user had a mini review but best of all the user had audio samples recorded in a bedroom with a desktop PC (giving a real world performance)
To me that blog was much better than any of the professional sites and many other people thought the same because who ever ran the blog provided unique primary information
PS above all, avoid blog pitfalls of writing articles based on a press release. Many users who have posted their blog links here have made this mistake, eg a company will make a press release of a product. a user here will then blog about it and speak positively about it based on the press release.
no one wants to see a post saying something like (making up a statement) "this is truly a great product because it contains ultra optimized itffddffdjhu with a new patent pending spoon that combines the features of a knife and a spoon which is sure to synergize your life" those types of blog posts are generally considered to be BS as it is just a glorified paraphrased advertisement.

@razor512 I tried many methods over the past 3 months. You are right reviews work and lists work too. Top 5, top 10 and stuff. My problem is that despite writing quality posts for the last 3 months i see no improvements. Is it because i am using an unorthodox platform like Weebly instead of Wordpress. If any of you are an experienced blogger then can you please see my site Web Planet Freaks and maybe try to find out what's wrong.

It really depends on how you advertise your website and on SEO. I'm not really one for clicking on ads and often find that you can generate more traffic by posting useful/helpful threads on Forums and people will generally click on links in your signature if you do (like Sozo said.)
