    Hi to all hubbers.

    For your info, I've been added the amazon capsule at my below hubpage:

    http://hubpages.com/hub/Longevity-Water … g-Schedule

    But, the only matter is I can only see the "Health Product" word instead of the amazon widget...

    I'm need some help here, any suggestion will be mostly appreciated smile

    No need for widget on HubPages.

    Just paste your Amazon code into your "Affiliate Settings" page, and then put Amazon capsules on your Hubs.

    HubPages does the rest.

    Even after pasting your code in affiliate setting no product is shown then you have to put new word in "key search box: like water. many times there are no products matching to your key word in the title. Key words of the title are searched as a default.

    I was at first puzzled by this too but found out that changing what keywords it searches for gets results eg water books and water music. And another way is to access the Amazon site and find items on there yourself by searching for them by name. The ASIN or ISBN codes is the alternative to keywords and I find is worth using.

    I'm new here too. Inspirepub wrote about just placing a code or something...where does that code come from?  So confused! Right now on the AmazonAffiliates as my main URL address I put  my profile page address. But I don't put any amazon on that page? How does Amazon know I've got all these amazon capsules filled with luscious goodies ready for folks to purchase on my blog pagess?

      desert blondie, I'm now fully understood what Inspirepub, premsingh and Bard of Ely talking about...

      All you need to do, make sure you did sign up for the Amazon affiliate and after the sign up, you will be give a 'Amazon affiliate code'. You can easily track this code each time you login to your amazon affiliate account (This code located on the top of your left sidebar.) If you from the North America, your code should be something like "yourusername-20", where the '-20' means you from the North America region.

      After that, just copy and paste the code at Hubpages "My Affiliate Settings". You need to click the 'edit' button first and enter the code, hit the 'done' button and you're on your way now...

      As for the amazon capsules, you just need to search the keywords that most suited for your hubs, for example: Since my hubs is about the longevity water drinking schedule, so I filled the "water" in my amazon capsule's keywords and Ta-da...amazon automatically show some products that associated with the "water" keywords smile

      Hope my a piece of work will help you out here, for those that offered the helps to me previously, a thousand thanks to you all...

      All the best,

    desert blondie -- you appear to have entered your amazon affiliate code correctly on the affiliate settings page.  All you should have to do now to start earning money is add and configure amazon capsules on some of your hubs.

    I keep trying to do that, but everytime I enter the amazon ASIN and previewing it says "No Amazon results found"

      Make sure you've set the capsule to be searching for results by ASIN/ISBN rather than keyword.

    Yeah I figured out what I was doing wrong. I always forget that when I'm posting books, you have to use the ISBN. Ha! But thanks for the help.
