New limit on Amazon cpsules

    I mean, capsules.

    I went through editing some of my hubs and noticed a warning in some of the Amazon capsules limiting each to two items. I don't know if there is a limit to how many capsules we can use... do you?
    My highest consistently earning hub for Amazon revenues has three capsules and each had three or four products. I pared them down to two each-- hope this meets the criteria.
    I usualy place them with three or four products-- meaning I'm going to have to go through a bunch of them.

      Hubs with more than 2 prior to the rule change are still OK. However, if you edit the capsule, then the limit of 2 kicks in.

        OK-- wish I had known that before , but it's still OK.
        So, we can still have more than one Amazon capsule?

          I don't recollect HP specifically addressing that. So the implication would be yes. However, on this point I'm admittedly guessing.

          Yep! You can still have more than one Amazon Capsule. We just recommend only featuring Amazon Products very sparingly and only when they are extremely relevant and explicitly referred to in the text. big_smile

            Thank you, Simone. I found the blog post, and it makes sense. smile

    That new rule ONLY affects Amazon and eBay capsules using keywords to search for products.  If you pick specific products in Amazon you can still have more than 2 per capsule.

    See the HP blog for more information.

      Senility is setting in, I think.  Thanks, PDS.

        I think that's universal once we near 100 hubs. Our synapses just plain wear out. And when you then throw in a few 1000 forum posts... My time is imminent as well.
