How To Put Amazon Onto Your Hubs
I have seen a few questions in the forums where people are a bit confused as to how to put Amazon onto their hubs. The following is a step-by-step guide to how I do it. This will only work if you have an Amazon account that is active. If you don't you will need to first sign up for an Amazon account.
Signing Up For Amazon
To get an Amazon affiliate account all the instructions on how to do this are at the learning center here on HubPages. Just follow this link.
How to Add the Amazon Capsule
Once your hub is written and you know what products you want to sell on your hub go into edit mode. Please note that you should only sell products that are directly related to the content within your hub. If you're writing about beauty products selling pots and pans will not work.
- Click on the Amazon capsule.
- This will be added to the bottom of your hub page.
- Click on edit Amazon. You will have two choices:
1) Choose specific products
2) Choose keywords
Choosing Specific Amazon Products
To choose specific products, open up a second browser tab and go to Amazon.com. Type in a search for the product you are looking for, and once you find it click on it. For example if you are looking for dog leashes and do a search, a page with many leashes will appear. Click on the specific one that you want to promote.
Once you see the leash that you want, click on the URL in the address bar. Right click and copy this URL. Go back to your hub Amazon capsule and paste the URL into where it says Amazon URL. At this point you can add more products repeating the above steps.
Once you are happy with the product or products that you have, click save. You can also add a capsule subtitle and write a description. You can easily move the Amazon capsule to where you would like it to appear on your hub page by clicking on the arrow keys or by the drop and drag in the right side bar.
Word Count and Amazon
When adding Amazon products to a hub you must have at least fifty words within the hub. If your hub is 500 words for example, you are allowed to have a total of ten Amazon products on that hub.
Once again please note: The suggested number of Amazon products per capsule is 2.
Click on choose keywords such as dog leash and Amazon will give you 3 – 10 products relating to dog leashes. You can also use the drop down menu in the product area to help find your general items. Example you would pick from the drop down menu Pet Supplies then type in Dog Leashes for the keyword. Once you are happy with the results that Amazon has given you, click on save.
*Please note: Suggested Amazon products per capsule is 2.
