I am having trouble putting the items I want to see in my Amazon Capsules. It's my 2nd month, but I have written 29 hubs and worked hard. I have put ISBN #'s in Amazon Capsules, and never once got the book I wanted listed. How do you do it?
Also, I can't select specific items from Amazon. I have to use the "keywords" and that's very hit or miss. I recently wrote a book review on Stephen King's Full Dark, No Stars, and couldn't even get the books I wanted in the capsule. When you say copy the HTML or URL, are you talking about that 50 character number on top of the computer on the Amazon Page? Do you have to research that and have all those characters ready before you write your hub? I am signed up as an Amazon Affilate and on Google AdSense. How am I going wrong? Thanks. Jean Bakula
The url for the Stephen King book is this: http://www.amazon.com/Full-Dark-Stars-S … amp;sr=1-1
Open one page with your hub in edit mode then open a new tab or page for amazon.com. Search for the product on amazon, go to the product page, then copy the url from the bar at the top of the page (http://....). In your amazon capsule select choose specific products, then paste the url into it. Click save. The product should now show up.
Thanks so much! I'll give it a try the next time and see if I can do it! Jean B
Really? That works? Huh, never knew that. That might save a bit of time.
At least I don't feel so dumb now, lol. Everyone on here is really nice about helping. I can get one book if it's one I'm reviewing. But I was unable to get a specific product. I've been writing some Astrology pieces, and wanted Necklaces or Anklets that had charms with the sign's glyph. Amazon would give me some if I asked, but they weren't of the quality I would want my readers to buy. Thanks again.
Go to Amazon product link. Choose your item then highlight html. Copy, then past to your capsule, then you are good to go.

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)?

This will probably get me hunted down and shot, but here goes…When I first started here, I plastered Amazon capsules all over the place; each and every one of them 8 products long. And then two more 8-mile long...

Where is the best place for amazon capsules to get more buyer and money? Under text or beside text or else?

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all...
