    Can anyone explain why Arkansas is not eligible to participate in the Amazon Affiliate program?  Is there a way around that?  Are there other ways I can monetize my hubs?

      It looks like the change in 2011 was related to tax regulations.

      What are other ways to monetize my hubs?

        The best way to monetize your Hubs is the HP Earnings Program.   For most people, Amazon and eBay capsules are just the icing on the cake, not the main game. 

        To participate in the HP Earnings Program you will need an Adsense account.   If you already have one, you just need to associate it with HubPages.  If you don't have one, then you need to apply for one.   The quickest way to get approved is to apply with an existing blog if you have one - otherwise, wait until you have 20 Featured Hubs before you apply.

        See the "How to Make Money on HubPages" section here.

    I assume the answer is "nope," but just to make sure --

    The Hubpages Amazon program uses Hubpages affiliate links. Hubpages in a state where the Amazon program is active.

    But even if the associate ID is Hubpages, if the hubber lives in a banned state, they can't collect Amazon commissions?

      People from a banned state can earn money using the HP Amazon program, provided they have an AdSense account.

      HP pays the money to the Hubber, not Amazon.  All funds are transferred by HP via PayPal.

        In which case, all Robin needs to do is register for the Hubpages Amazon program, and she should be able to use Amazon capsules and earn commissions, right?

        ... I'm double-checking because that's exactly the advice I gave on one of my hubs last year, and I need to change it if I'm giving the wrong info.

          That's right.  Look at #5 on the link I gave:

          "Participation in the Amazon Program does not require a contractual relationship between you and Amazon. Your relationship is with HubPages. "

            So this is not automatic like it was on Squidoo right?

    favored: No.  The difference is that if you use the HP Earnings Program, HP Amazon Program, HP Ebay program, you need an Adsense account which Squidoo did not require.
