Is anyone else experiencing this? I can't see any of my amazon capsules. Is there a reason for this? Hubpages glitch or did I do something?
Melinda, I just checked my latest hub and the Amazon ads I brought in are still there. Is your hub still in the approval stages, perhaps?
Many times this issue is a result of ad blocking software.
Try disabling all browser plugins, extensions, and toolbars including any ad-blocker software.
Here are some general browser trouble shooting steps as well.

A not always answer for occasions of this happening I discovered is what is advertised itself not longer is available. I use to choose specific items of niche products that simply sold out and then a blank appears basically. Also that occurred when I choose a particular eBay store and product and it sold out. Different circumstances than the one you described, but may offer consideration.
No, it's a featured hub. I can't see any amazon capsules for any hubpage user, only eBay. Why would this be?
OMG, I am sorry for the alarm. I am using my husband's computer this evening while my daughter takes a nap upstairs. I just figured out what this is. My husband has an ABP ad blocker on. It must be something new that he installed. I had no idea that this could prevent me from seeing Amazon capsules. I thought ad blockers were for pop-ups only. I have turned it off, reloaded the page, and they reappeared. Lost my sanity for a second.1
Thank you bravewarrior for responding to my plea for help. You are always available when I have had questions and so helpful. ;-)
Thank you Matthew Meyer. I got it back to working. Feeling a little embarrassed. ;-)
Of course, it really doesn't matter whether our own browsers are blocking Amazon ads from showing. We, the authors, are not the desired audience for those ads.
What we care about is whether those ads are visible to our readers and visitors.
But that's their choice to make, not ours. We just have to hope that most of them choose to allow our ads to display.

I was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views yield ad impressions so only 35% of our views gives us earnings. If you get 1000...

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...

I have been thinking of leaving HubPages for a while now because of several reasons. With their latest ebay/amazon update I now have to reformat over 90 hubs (Some had not been published yet and I was waiting for Halloween). Rather than doing this I will use my time looking for a site and...

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

Should I continue to run Amazon ads if I've never earned a penny with them?I've been earning with AdSense and HubPages since July, but never a penny from Amazon.
