When I try to choose the items on Amazon that I want to use, I get a message that the item wasn't found, so I try keywords and see what they suggest and some of the ones I had chosen are there; I had but the right codes for the ones I wanted. Can anybody help?
Sometimes there are transient errors in the feed coming from Amazon and an item will be unavailable for a while, and sometimes Amazon just doesn't seem to allow some products to link up properly. At least that's been my experience.
I either try again later, pick another item or find something on eBay that is just as relevant.
Thanks, right now I'm doing alright with keywords and their selecting for me.
I used to use the keywords until some of my hubs started getting flagged for items that were not related to the hub being advertised. When I went to view these hubs I could see where Amazon's keywords were very broad in nature and there were, indeed, unrelated items not only on the Amazon capsules, but Ebay as well.
From that experience, I have started going to the site and picking the items that I want to display individually.
Hi Dale, I did go directly to items on Amazon and put the ISBN # for each that was asked for and it still didn't work. I agree the keyword search for Amazon doesn't always give you related items, or they aren't specific enough. I plan on trying to search by ISBN again.
Thanks for helping.
