I mean, capsules.
I went through editing some of my hubs and noticed a warning in some of the Amazon capsules limiting each to two items. I don't know if there is a limit to how many capsules we can use... do you?
My highest consistently earning hub for Amazon revenues has three capsules and each had three or four products. I pared them down to two each-- hope this meets the criteria.
I usualy place them with three or four products-- meaning I'm going to have to go through a bunch of them.
Hubs with more than 2 prior to the rule change are still OK. However, if you edit the capsule, then the limit of 2 kicks in.
OK-- wish I had known that before , but it's still OK.
So, we can still have more than one Amazon capsule?
I don't recollect HP specifically addressing that. So the implication would be yes. However, on this point I'm admittedly guessing.
Yep! You can still have more than one Amazon Capsule. We just recommend only featuring Amazon Products very sparingly and only when they are extremely relevant and explicitly referred to in the text.
That new rule ONLY affects Amazon and eBay capsules using keywords to search for products. If you pick specific products in Amazon you can still have more than 2 per capsule.
See the HP blog for more information.
I think Wilderness meant this one.

Gave it up and removed my remaining eBay capsules. I guess my hubs just aren't suited for them. Might give it another shot if the Buy It Now option becomes available though.

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

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...

We just released a small update to the site. Among a slew of bug fixes and small updates, there are two notable changes.The first is that you can follow the comments on a hub, and receive email notifications when new comments are made. Just click the follow button near the top of the...

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...
