    I'm not looking to be titty fed, I'm looking for sense of direction on what to do next.

    Whatever time was not being stolen from me from my job i would try to absorb whatever information I'd find on BHW; i ended up taking the Amazon path as it seemed the easiest to comprehend.
    So far, i have a hosted wordpress blog that reviews products found on Amazon. I think it's a good niche and i have 5 review articles i purchased through here and modified to make the grammar seem more 'Human' and legit. Also, i messed with the theme to make sure it doesn't look like complete ass.

    Here's my question: where do i go from here? I know the next step would be to drive traffic to my site but what would the correct way be about doing this? Like i said, I've read many methods on BHW, but there's so much jargon that is new to me that i just end up psyching myself out into confusion. Is there a certain guideline/book that is recommended? I feel like scraping through information is a bad idea since one method eventually changes the game plan.

    If you guys could post links to sources that helped you in the beginning that'd be sweet. Right now my notes are full of information I've scraped but none of it seems to be coming together.

    P.S. Should i be buying tools or doing things manually right now? All i have is a VPS, VPN and e-mail software that i already had.

    Thanks

    You don't have to go the SEO route right away. First of all, master your on page SEO. PHPbuilt has a excellent post about this here in a authority site thread:

    The second thing you want to do is post tons of unique reviews and articles related to your niche. Interlink between them where it makes sense. Don't expect traffic right off the bat, Amazon takes some time to get going but when it does it is a brilliant passive income source. Don't just settle for product reviews, write how to articles and buying guides too that interlink to some of your review posts.
