Is anyone else experiencing this? I can't see any of my amazon capsules. Is there a reason for this? Hubpages glitch or did I do something?
Melinda, I just checked my latest hub and the Amazon ads I brought in are still there. Is your hub still in the approval stages, perhaps?
Many times this issue is a result of ad blocking software.
Try disabling all browser plugins, extensions, and toolbars including any ad-blocker software.
Here are some general browser trouble shooting steps as well.

A not always answer for occasions of this happening I discovered is what is advertised itself not longer is available. I use to choose specific items of niche products that simply sold out and then a blank appears basically. Also that occurred when I choose a particular eBay store and product and it sold out. Different circumstances than the one you described, but may offer consideration.
No, it's a featured hub. I can't see any amazon capsules for any hubpage user, only eBay. Why would this be?
OMG, I am sorry for the alarm. I am using my husband's computer this evening while my daughter takes a nap upstairs. I just figured out what this is. My husband has an ABP ad blocker on. It must be something new that he installed. I had no idea that this could prevent me from seeing Amazon capsules. I thought ad blockers were for pop-ups only. I have turned it off, reloaded the page, and they reappeared. Lost my sanity for a second.1
Thank you bravewarrior for responding to my plea for help. You are always available when I have had questions and so helpful. ;-)
Thank you Matthew Meyer. I got it back to working. Feeling a little embarrassed. ;-)
Of course, it really doesn't matter whether our own browsers are blocking Amazon ads from showing. We, the authors, are not the desired audience for those ads.
What we care about is whether those ads are visible to our readers and visitors.
But that's their choice to make, not ours. We just have to hope that most of them choose to allow our ads to display.

I was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time...
