I wanted to add the Nikon D5000 camera I was mentioning in one of my photography hubs into an amazon capsule, but when I paste the asin of the product, the capsule keeps telling me it doesn't find the product. This happened to all the D5000 cameras available on Amazon and they are not from third party sellers.
So at last I entered the asin of one of those combined sales and that went ok, but it's not the Nikon D5000 I wanted.
Titia, I've found I have to open amazon and do my own Amazon search, when the product doesn't come up on HP search. Also, as you know, even the Amazon search will say a product is no longer available. But in your case, I'd try my own search for the item, before settling for something else.
Hi Nancy, I never use the HP search, I always search for the items I want on Amazon and then copy/paste the asin. All four Nikon D5000 cameras are available. Try this asin B00267S7TQ or this one B0026FCKA0 yourself and you will see the capsule will say 'not found' and that goes for all 4 sole Nikon D5000 cameras. Even the url's don't work.
Edit to add: I see that the Zero is set to the letter o in here. Not as I type it, but after I submit it, strange.
As @Corrinna-Johnson mentioned, it is likely an excluded item.
I did a few tests using this code B00267S7TQ and did not get product results either for that camera in the Amazon product capsule.
I found this little snippet about exclusions (related to the API).
https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp … exclusions
I get a feeling that this may not be a list they share publicly and that is updated frequently.
That's a tech issue in Amazon's API feed. Any errors in retrieving the product info gives that result on this end.
Sounds like it could possibly be an excluded product. There are certain products that are not available for affiliates to promote. Newer cameras and other electronics are often on these lists.

There have been several theories about what content Google is penalising and rewarding in the search results but at the moment it does seem a bit random (from my end). Let's compare notes and hopefully we can see some common threads in there. What content of yours is holding on to its ranking and...

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

Now that we are 'all in this together' so to speak with the new HP Amazon program, it is in all our interests to get as many sales as possible, as we will all benefit.I'll start.If your hub is all about cleaning carpets, for example, a hub entitled How to Clean Carpets may encompass all if your hub...

There is a real need to purge Amazon ads from this site but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.Pages that have multiple Amazon ads but get good traffic from search engines are obviously not a problem. Google will have hit them long ago if they were triggering spam filters.What...

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...
