I have been trying to use the link capsule to add product links from Commission Junction, and other affiliate networks.
But apparently this is not the correct function for the link capsule, because every single link has come up as a bad link.
When I use a destination URL, then the links are good.
Just checking to make sure I'm on the right track here, so would appreciate any input.
here is a good hub about using capsules. hope this helps.
rebekah is right--you can't link to other affiliates or products in the link capsule. They are only for links to other sites or info.
You can only include the affiliates HubPages allows--eBay, Amazon, Google and Kontera. eBay and Amazon each have their own capsules which you can use to include specific products from their sites.
Thanks for that link, Rebekah. It's very useful.
Somehow I was under the impression - obviously a wrong one - that two links were allowed to other affiliate sites besides Amazon and Ebay.
Apparently the deal is that two other links are allowed, they just can't be affiliate links.
Glad to have this cleared up so I can quit thinking about it!

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...

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2...
