Amazon product capsules - what you should know
Make Money Online with HubPages Kindle Book
How many Amazon products can you have on a hub?
Amazon capsules on HubPages are a wonderful way to make a little extra income when you apply them to your article (hub). You share the profit with HubPages in that comes to a 60/40 breakdown in your favor. Amazon affiliate ID is used on 60% of the impressions. And for each of those impressions you get your full commission, as high as 8.5%. According to what I have read is that for every 100 words that you have created, you can create one Amazon product from the capsule. In order to make Google happy you should only have one in each capsule (known as a module coming from Squidoo).
In the past, you were able to place many products in one Amazon capsule. When you see some articles on my main Sandyspider on Hubpages account you will notice that. With too many articles scattered across the internet and to try to divide up my time, I have left many of these as they were once allowed to be.
HubPages now suggest that you place these in separate capsules to go along with your writing content. This should bring up your Hub Score. But I have learned a long time ago that some Hubbers like me stay at a particular hub score no matter what they do to please HubPages.
This is the point to get across.
Hubpages is forever changing. What was once 50 words became 100. Presently it is one Amazon product in a capsule for every 300 words and do not add more than one in each area.
Amazon product capsules – beware of ad blockers
As a former member of Squidoo, when you would use the Amazon module it showed up. Even when you had an ad blocker set for your internet.
I cannot say for Firefox, Bing or any other browser types, but if you are working through Google Chrome there is an ad blocker APP that you can turn on. As mentioned for the Squidoo article, you could still see the Amazon products in their module. For HubPages, they magically disappear.
For this fact, I have in my newer hubs added a photo and a link to the Amazon product. This way it will show up if someone has an ad blocker on.
The problem with that is if I am not mistaken is that HubPages has on my Sandyspider hubs counted that as the two links per same domain site limit instead of the one Amazon product per 300 words when using the capsule instead.
If you have the ad blocker on, you will not see the Amazon capsules that are shown above the text here.

Writing on the Wall: Social Media - The First 2,000 Years
The writing is on the wall
The Amazon capsule to the left is the book by Tom Standage called Writing on the Wall: Social Media - The First 2,000 Years and states that social media is nothing is nothing new and has been going on since the Roman area. Social media are not only being on the internet, but it is how the media masses, such has television and in socializing among a group of people.
I chose this book for three reasons.
- To see if this hub will be noted as overly promotional because I originally had it as a photo with a link to Amazon. It was marked it as overly promotional because I past the two link per domain limit. Despite the fact that HubPages allows one Amazon product per 300 words, this only pertains to the capsules.
- To show my former Squidoo friends and everyone else how Amazon looks on HubPages. As both an Amazon capsule and as a photo with an affiliate link and how it looks if they had ad blocker on. (Or disappear!)
- For my friends from Squidoo, the writing was on the wall. We just did not get to see it!
