Do all Amazon links have to be shown in the Amazon capsule or is there a way to get the correct link through HubPages--so that HubPages gets credit for any sales made-- to place within the text of of hub, instead?
There is a way to do it, I'm just not sure if it's allowed.
I went through the FAQ, but didn't see anything either way.
Does anyone know if Amazon links can ONLY be done in a module?
If you link to Amazon outside the capsules, the link limits will come into effect on those links. More than two per Hub or using them singularly across lots of Hubs will have the same negative effects as do overly-promotional links to any other domains.
If you want I can show you how to setup an amazon link with your aff ID embedded, it's up to you if you want to use your link limit for Amazon products when there's a module without limits available.
Let me know...
I agree, but pure text links have a higher CTR than links with pictures, so it might result in more sales.
I would expect you are the expert in this area. I certainly am not. I just suggest what has ACTUALLY worked for me, lol. As a seller as well as an "affiliate" I find the capsules work the best for me.
I actually agree with you 100%, the module is better for multiple products. I can see the usefulness of a text link if you're promoting one single product, where a module would seem silly. Me, personally I use modules since I write about categories of products. If I was reviewing a book for example, I think the text link would be better. I'm not sure why the OP wants to place a text link, but I assume there's a reason she thinks it might be more useful than a module.
I have done reviews for a variety of items... I do not promote a specific item. So, simply said, under those circumstances the capsules have worked the best. Test linking is fine as far as I can figure, no problems, however, don't limit yourself.

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

Hey all,I posted this query in an older thread of mine with no joy. In retrospect, I probably should have posted the question independently:

Hi I would like to have the option to put "no follow" link in my hubs. I don't want my competition to rank higher because of my link juice.ThanksSai Kit

I am yet to successfully publish any articles with amazon products. I am trying to be clear on the requirements for these articles. I thought articles should be limited to 1-2 products, however I have seen list based articles with multiple products (ideas for gifts) on niche site, Holidappy. Would...
