I'm presuming this was answered somewhere, but a basic search doesn't yield a concise answer. Apologies if this is redundant.
I'm currently signed into the HubPages Amazon Program. Does this mean that I can utilize the capsules PLUS use two of my own Amazon affiliate links? Is it one or the other?
(Or, do I have it completely wrong?)
This seems to be a point of confusion for many Squids-turned-Hubbers (is that the term?) as of late.
If you're using HP Amazon program, you will only be able to use theirs on the Amazon capsules.
However, you can have 2 text aff links with your own Amazon ID per hub combined with the Amazon modules.
You can always opt out of the HP Amazon program when/if you wish to use your own ID on the Amazon capsules.
So if you select the other one do they simply put their own ads in without you choosing ads - or you using capsules?
Which one do you mean by the "other one"? The HP Amazon Program?
Also by "ads" are you talking about the products you choose to display or the ads displayed on the hub?
I am sorry. By "the other one" I meant the Amazon choice - not the HP. The "ads" are can you choose, or not choose, the items on display in the Amazon Associates.
The only snag with this is that if you use both program, it's going to take longer to reach payout threshold. Whereas if you stick to your own Amazon account for both, you've got all the money going to one place so you should reach payout sooner.
I guess that's only an issue if you're outside the US and therefore have a high payout threshold.
After activating your Amazon account in the my earnings page; you don't need to include affiliate link on Amazon cap as it is included automatically; see how to go about activating and using Amazon affiliate code here http://hubpages.com/help-answer/affilia … on-signup/
Ah, thank you thank you. I didn't realize that you could use your own ID with their capsules (much unlike Squidoo) so I never would've put two and two together on that one.
I suppose, had I deactivated the HP Amazon program to try it out and poke around using my own link, I could've figured that out.
Thank you for your help!
Barack: There are 2 Amazon programs here now. One is when we use our own affiliate account with Amazon.
The Second is through HP Amazon Earnings program where they provide our affiliate code and once we sign up for it, we do nothing.
LNAngel: I really don't know the answer. Somebody will know. It seems to me no. I think this because we sign up for one of the Amazon programs. If we put our affiliate code in, then that is that. Of course, we can change our mind and join the HP Amazon program which provides higher earnings. That code is built in by HP.
Examiner: You choose the products yourself. One product per 50 words. One product per capsule, but you can have as many capsules as you would like as long as hub is not overly promotional. Only 2 text links allowed.
Examiner: Confused now.
You click Amazon for capsule. You put keywords. You then review the product or products shown. Good way to see if product, even one when you use ASIN, because of Amazon does not show price, it cannot be used here in the capsules.
You DO NOT have to use products that show up on Amazon Preview.
You can also use ASIN for product of your choice.
If you are talking about the other ads that appear on our hubs, we have no choice in those.

For my first hub I asked my mom if it would be alright for me to do a review of her book. She agreed and I wrote one up. I intended to post a link from my hub to her book on amazon, however, upon further reading I read it is generally a good idea to have one or two hubs already posted before I try...

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...

Hello Hubbers,Just a quick question for the more experienced hubpage authors:For maximum revenues, do you recommend AdSense and Amazon together on your commercial hubs or *just* AdSense alone?From what I read it seems the bulk of revenues are via AdSense, but I could use some direct input and...
