Unrelated to tip 3 was this: “For them, it means one more boost that their book might sorely need to climb out of the ranking abyss that exists on sites like Amazon and Smashwords.”

“Abyss?” Surely not. That's where I was planning on sending my book when it’s finished. Don’t tell me that. That’s too pessimistic. I’d prefer to think of Amazon and Smashwords as mega bookshops that with the world as its market. Have I got my head in the sand?

The challenge with Amazon is getting noticed. Go to Amazon and decide what category you fit in, then click on a book in that category. Scroll towards the bottom. It'll show where the book ranks out of how many. That's your "abyss". Warning, it's exceptionally discouraging to do this but at least you can plough forward with your eyes open.
