I am having difficulty adding an Amazon Associate link to a hub. When I paste the link into the Amazon hotlink field it tells me its an invalid link because it is too long. Any suggestions on how to remedy this? Thanks in advance.
If you are using the Amazon capsule all you need is ASIN or ISBN
If you are using a text link, Amazon provides you with a shortened link. Go to your associate account page enter the ASIN to get the product, click on get link and at the top right you, should see shortened link, so get that.
Remember that only 2 text links to same domain are permitted which means only 2 text links for Amazon, 2 text links for Share a sale, etc.
Since you are an Amazon associate, you can use Amazon capsules. Just go to my account, click on earnings tab, scroll down to earning program settings, click on configure button for amazon and put your Associate ID there, unless you are part of HP earnings program and have decided to take part of HP Amazon program, which you need Adsense account for. In the event you are participating in the HP Amazon program, then you would have to use your text links for personal associate account.
Thank you so much for the additional information. I have yet to be accepted by Google Adsense. They keep saying I don't have enough content. But one issue at a time, and you gave me two avenues to use. Thanks again, Tom
You will need about 10 Hubs and to have been a member for at least one month before Adsense will let you be accepted as a Hubber account. If you also Blog then you need a Blog that has been established for over a month.
