    Most of the products in amazon stores are available through dynamic ulrs that change regularly: I have noticed a number of products that I din't recommend showing up in my hubs. The worst part; I include product's name in the Amazon caps title. It seems so embarassing to me when a visitor finds something else that I din't recommend in the Amazon caps. This has forced me to remove product names in Amazon cap's title to avoid the contadiction btween the product showing up and the indicated product name in the titles. How do you deal with this issue?

    How do you choose your Amazon product?

    If you type in a search term, you'll get a dynamic link. But if you enter the URL or Amazon code for a specific product, that product will stay until Amazon drops it. [At which time the capsule will be invisible.]

    pardon any fuzzy thinking, I need my coffee!

    Liz is correct, from what I've experienced.  I'd suggest two options:

    1.  Don't be as specific when titling the product.  Instead, say something more broadly general about a set of products (this works for some of my hubs)

    2.  Make sure you're entering the specific URL.

    If you put in the specific ASIN number of any particular product, then that item will always show in your capsule, unless it's out of stock.
