I'm thinking of adding Amazon.com capsules to my hubs. Is anybody making money doing this, or am I wasting my time? Please respond ASAP.
If you hand pick your items and place the capsules in good places, you should be able to make good money at them. It will also depend on the topics and what items you put in the hub. It is very important to make sure that the products are relevant to your topics.

I can see contextual advertising being a source of income but wouldn't think that hubs would be making a lot of revenue from ebay and amazon. If people are really making money then perhaps I'll give it a try.

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?
