I registered as an Amazon affiliate (Is that the right word?)
I made up a hub for Amazon products.
Do I next hit "publish now" and that's it?
Used the Amazon capsule to add the appropriate products.
Then I added more Amazon products using the Amazon "keywords" feature, and two of the four items Amazon picked already appear in other Amazon capsules. Is there a way to edit out the duplicates from this Amazon capsule?
I want the primary product to appear by itself in an Amazon capsule. But this primary product appears again in the "keywords" capsule. Hope that's clear.
You can try changing the search terms you used to find general Amazon items. Sometimes it works; more often I end up using specific items. I prefer the keywords as sometimes a particular seller or item will disappear, leaving the capsule blank, but find that it is not always possible.
I assume you are completely registered with Amazon, accepted and all. If you are finished with the hub, including the Amazon capsules, the yes, just go ahead and publish.
"I assume you are completely registered with Amazon, accepted and all."
In my hub affiliate settings I have the Amazon affiliate code and status "Set." Is that adequate, or are there other steps to take?
For my apparel hubs, I used direct codes and keywords(specific).
I'll go to Amazon and copy the bold text description on the page and enter it as my keywords. It brings it directly to the item on that page.
Using Amazon codes, work just as good as keywords.
In the edit mode in the amazon capsule, click on 'Choose specific products' and then manually enter the URLS of the items you wish to display.
I've always wondered about this. The replies are very informative.
You can also use negative terms, ie if you want to show dog collars, but not blue dog collars you could use the term "dog collar -blue"

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)?

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs,...
