Second….. you mention that linking out to authority sites helps make my site a hub in Google’s eyes. Does this still apply if the outbound links are affiliate links? I’m assuming google is smart enough not to put much weighting on affiliate links for obvious reasons.
E-commerce Web design is never “finished.” It’s a continuous process of A/B testing to hunt down the best performing variations. The right “tools” are important, but the best consultant or company is more important. An expensive consultant is not expensive if she can generate many more sales than a “cheap” one.

Except the scrapperbox and social media tools… Can you suggest any social media Desktop application… which will let me manage all the social medias together making tear 2 links and RSS feeds and with auto post scheduling. And best if it will be free or low cost.
I have to start managing my stress. I’ve gained over 50 pounds and will be 50 years old before I know it. My youngest daughter went from being born to seven in a blink. I’m in menopause and hormonal, my poor husband, need I say more? TMI? Too bad, LOL! This is my website and I can say whatever I want! Bottom line, I’m at a tipping point and need a break before I break.

The same goes for the search engines: on single post pages, these links aren’t necessarily related to the topic at hand, and thus aren’t helping you at all. Thus: get rid of them. There are probably more widgets like these that only make sense on the homepage, and others that you’d only want on sub pages.
