I just got my first ever notice that I had an unrelated product in a hub. When I checked- it was the Amazon capsule. Amazon had changed the product. I would NEVER have put that product in my hub.They seem to be changing products and gearing them to Halloween. Guess this means i have to go through all my hubs and make sure the products still match or does someone know of an easier way?
When I am unsure of what will come up, I choose specific products, rather than using keywords. Did you do that? Or are you saying that you had specific product numbers and the product was still changed?
I always choose keywords and check the product before publishing. I've gone through about one third of my hubs so far and had to fix a few. No I didn't use product numbers, maybe I shoudl.
When I write a hub and I'd like a specific book or product to be displayed, I always choose the product ID rather than the keyword. Sometimes I don't care if it's that specific, but most of the time I do.
I always choose specific things too. But I haven't made any money at all on Amazon this year. I thought HP was supposed to get a preferred rate status, but it seems we are being ignored. I don't write product hubs much though, so am not an expert by any means. People who write on Wizzley seem happier with their Amazon capsules there. You can find products with keywords or ISBN numbers, but they have "buy it" buttons, and more bells and whistles to bring attention to what you want to sell. Best wishes.
I always choose specific products. I think I have a better chance at choosing tempting items than a bot does. For example, if I'm writing a soup recipe and want to drop in an Amazon ad for a soup pot, I go in and take a quick look around at what exactly they offer. Then I'll put the items in that I think have the most appeal to the most people. Sometimes I might chose a product for it's popular brand name, sometimes I'll choose something that looks like a terrific deal or that has free shipping. You can also sort search results by popularity; often I'll list the one or two most-ordered items in a category.
In decorating articles, I look through Amazon items and choose those that are simply gorgeous or in trendy colors or patterns.
Amazon offers so much stuff for sale... IMHO if you don't specify exactly what products you want to offer, you just never know what you'll end up with.

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there a definitive rule that is being used to snip out the products capsules? I...

I have been trying without success to get those specific products or even Amazon banners posted into some of my hubs. They say to highlight the code (which I do) and then paste it into the website. I have tried doing it in the code section, Amazon section and also tried it in the RSS...

I don't know what is going on with my articles lately, but every time they edit them, my amazon capsules are removed. Once they remove the amazon products, they publish it and feature it. I don't understand why this is happening to my articles. If they are going to remove the amazon capsules, then...

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

In the past, we could add up to 10 products into one amazon capsule (using specific ASINs or product links). When I opened one of my hubs a few days ago I noticed that that is no longer allowed. I believe we are limited to 1 specific item per amazon capsule now... My question is this... Since my...
