Pages: It is like blog posts, the main difference is that pages contain your important information about your blog like About you, contact form and other things.
Comments: These are the feedback of people after reading your contents (maybe to ask questions or to thank you for the great content), it is always placed after the contents. Though you can decide to use comment box or not (in case you don’t like it).
Traffic: This is the headcount of people who visit your website. People can visit from different sources. There are many tools to track your website traffic but I love to use Google Analytics.
