I've tried searching the forums and looking at the Amazon site, but I have no idea how to get a product link, or anything else for that matter, to show up. The only thing that shows up is "No Amazon results found." I am so frustrated. There are some items I want to link to, but the Amazon help page is no help. Will someone please assist me?
Sadly, the Amazon capsule here does not do well with a lot of items on the Amazon site. Just about any third party item tends to come up as not found. That's why my Squidoo retail earnings continue to put the HubPages ones to shame.
I talked with Paul Edmondson a bit about it when I was in SF, but until they change how the capsule pulls the Amazon feeds, there's not really anything we can do.
By doing a lot of experimentation with keywords and trying a lot of ASINs, I've come up with Amazon offerings for my Hubs, and that's about all the constructive advice I can offer.
Thanks for responding. I wasn't sure if it was me or not. I did get some results to show up by doing the keywords so I feel a little better now. :-)

It seems the News Capsule is now out of favour.That's a bummer, because over the last couple of years, it's been recommended as a great thing to add your Hubs to keep the content "fresh".As a result, I (and...
