I have just started here on HUB Pages. I have posted 2 Hub pages so far. I would like to know how I can literally add already approved links for affiliate marketing to my HUB pages? Thank you!
I was accepted to a particular company's affiliate program. It is relevant to my business and so to my HUBS (which are all connected) Do you have any idea how to do that? I am really new to this. What are capsules?
We do not actually allow affiliate links; only products featured through Amazon and eBay Capsules. You can check out our guides to using those here:

I'm glad you posted this, Simone - I just got an 'invitation' to post a link to someone's business. It was sent through the messaging feature here on HP. I don't recognize the name here, but I was a bit surprised to see that happen. They do, indeed, claim to have a business related to the topic of the hub. No, I have not replied to them! No plans to do so.
Adding affiliate links to the above is a sure way to get the moderators to unpublish your material as overly promotional.
I was away for a week. I will be publishing more HUBS. I just met with a woman today who will be taking videos of me, as I have promised on my 1st 2 Hubs. My first Hub was "featured" so it seems that what I have created so far is seen as just fine. It says all over Hub's site in all the frequently asked questions, that you can add affiliate links. They seem to encourage it. And, I have looked at many Hubs that have them. Thanks for your feedback though. I certainly will continue to publish Hubs now that I am back.
What about 'In Text' Amazon links (in other words not done through capsules so no revenue split)? The last I recall they used to be okay (up to a maximum of two per hub), as did certain other affiliate links such as 'Commission Junction'. I know many others were banned such as 'Clickbank', but although many writers here asked for an 'official' list of the approved ones HP would never provide a list as they apparently said something about how this would cause more problems than if they provided no list at all.
After seeing how great Viglink is now for selling and advertising, it's strange how the policy here hasn't been updated to reflect the changes in how affiliates are becoming now...
Facebook and twitter are doing great without Google muddying the water. Even Viglink is allowable on these social media. Link posts are a way into a future for everyone's benefit. It's another revenue stream. Even Google have invested millions into Viglink.
i don't think hubpages likes affiliate links...its more a place to express your unique writing...and get a cut of google, ebay and amazon commissions...join amazon and ebay affiliate programs through hubpages.

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:

In light of the latest Hubpages blog post, can I safely assume that any non-sales hubs would benefit from the removal of Amazon capsules altogether?These are capsules which likely earn me next to nothing for 10 months...
