What a pain! Not that I was making a killing from Amazon, but I had earned a little $ before they cancelled my account. I can't decide whether to quickly get to work editing my hubs and removing Amazon capsules. I don't use a lot of photos - just lazy - so the Amazon capsules have helped "illustrate" my hubs somewhat.
What would you do? What are other Tarheels doing? Should I just leave them and let HubPages earn their pennies?
Read all about it:
I got an email warning this might happen a week or so ago, but I never saw the "official" ending. I logged into my account after seeing the news article, and sure enough, it says it's closed.
It didn't start in Hawaii, it started last year in New York. And it's not just Amazon. Lots of affiliates who live in New York, lost their entire livlihood and have been scrambling to recover ever since.
I would definitely take off the Amazon capsules. Take a look at Ebay, you might be able to do a substitution for some items, if you're a member of that program. And they don't discontinue that program in NC because of the new internet tax law.
Thanks, Nelle, that's what I was thinking, too, and I've replaced a few. I don't think I'm going to stress over doing it quickly, though I wonder if it will count as "updating"...hmmm.

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...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?
