    Ok that was a big one lol. You're on the right path. If your keywords are low competition then with good top quality posts and on page seo you can do well before you even begin to build backlinks. With wordpress it is very easy to over optimize as you end up with keywords in title, tags, headings, keywords, categories. It becomes too much. Search on here how to avoid over optimization.

    You should however build some top quality backlinks to solidify your place in the SERPS. Search for your keywords on the big three search engines G, yahoo and bing. Take a list of top 50-100 results on each. These are the most relevant and top quality pages for that keyword. Work your way through each one and look for a way to get a backlink from that page. They might accept guest posts, allow comments, may be a forum that you could build links from. You could ask them by saying you have a relevant site. However you won't get a lot of links from these sites. But the ones you do will provide a lot of link juice. Quality over quantity. You can also look at other backlinks.

    You can build social pages is always good idea and YouTube videos could do well in this niche.

    that should be enough to keep you busy.

    Notes on amazon associate. Most people on amazon affiliate program will want to get the person to click on the amazon link as soon as possible. Once they do the cookie is on their computer. After this anything they buy on amazon you will earn the commission. And amazon are the kings of conversion. So make clear to the person you want them to click on the link. You can provide quality content to do so.

    Hope that helps you out. Good luck.

    Maybe a couple more questions ,

    How long would it take for a brand new website to start receiving traffic ? Days / weeks / months ?
    If you deliver high quality content, what is a good natural rate of facebook likers and twitter followers ? What can I expect, when do I know I'm sucking at it , when do I know its naturally growing ok ?

    Thank you :)

    You sound like you have made a good start. I would launch it and let it start to get indexed and just keep doing what you are doing. Yoast builds a good sitemap anyway so you can add that to google webmasters tools. I would also suggest signing up for a trial of MOZ. There is a thread on here with 3 months free trial. Add your competitors to that and that will help you get a better idea of how they have managed to rank. It will also give you some tips for your own website and what can be improved. I wouldn't bother with a backlink blast yet, it sounds like your thinking long term with this type of website so let it grow naturally for the first few months. Thats just my opinion.
