Now that I've written my last hub (a product review designed for Amazon) I find that Amazon no longer carries the product!
It is still available elsewhere, though, and I wonder if I can insert a particular google ad or a google search link to a retailer and get paid for at least a click?
If you've used the keywords enough, Google should insert the relevant Adsense ad all by itself.
Example - I wrote a review of the Artisteer software, mainly because I thought it was good - but I thought I'd sign up for Linkshare to get an affiliate commission too. It turned out to be a pain in the neck because I don't use them for anything else, so the commission is so small it's not worth it.
However, Google has kindly plonked a big colourful Adsense ad for Aristeer right at the top of the Hub.
If you had a website about it you could insert ads which include a category you created specifically related to that product.
As far as hubs go all I know is you can eliminate certain ads in Google Adsense..I don't know about choosing specific ones
So unless you create a proper website I don't know the answer I'm afraid, I say this because I have my own site.
unlucky, try providing alternatives products which are kind of similar!
No, not unlucky - just stupid! I could have at least checked before spending the time taking photos and writing. Live and learn, I guess.
There are similar products, I just don't have experience with them. Guess I could read a bunch of other's reviews and mash them all together, but just seems kind of dishonest.
It's not dishonest, it's marketing
You can put a disclaimer at the bottom saying that this product is no longer sold by amazon, but people might like to try out these alternatives.
After that piece of text place a large amazon link to other related products.

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...

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some...

If you have a standard Hub that gets Amazon sales once in a while, keep the Amazon modules and get those 10% sales. Those Hubs have lots of Google history and I still get sales on them. A hat Hub just got two fifty in...
