Amazon ads should be related directly to our hubs., which is understandable. I don't place many, and check every now and then that they are displaying okay. This morning I found an Amazon ad for anti wrinkle eye cream on a hub about different causes of dizziness and vertigo. What? It was supposed to be an ad for a book advising how to reduce salt intake, (relevant to some causes of vertigo.) Do Amazon ads change themselves if the product is out of stock?
Did you put a particular product ID on the ad, or did you use a keyword? It is possible that it was the closest keyword match.
I used keywords on this ad, with the word "salt" included. Looking back, the eye cream referred to sea salt to reduce dark circles.
I've seen ads go blank if the product is out of stock, but not had one change to something entirely different. Thanks for the input and advice, everyone....lesson learned!
Amazon ads will only change if you add products by keyword, which is no longer recommended due to problems Iike you just saw with relevancy.
This does happen from time to time. Just go in and change the product to the one you want. I do not know why Amazon does that - it is frustrating.
When a product is no longer available, I have seen it where the capsule is there but nothing else. I would check the ASIN for your product on Amazon, see if it is out of stock, etc and then simply redo your Amazon capsule.

I've read several posts from people who say that they make the bulk of their money by writing hubs about Amazon's best selling products and inserting Amazon capsules for the products.I figured I could do that. So I went to Amazon and found that a certain type of knife sharpener was one of their hot...

Starting later today, you will have to choose a specific product to display going forward when you add an Amazon Capsule to new articles.We are offering a 30 day grace period for articles with existing...

I've been trying to write more hubs geared toward our affiliates (eBay and Amazon). I'm probably taking a wild card shot at this one, but we'll see if they generate anything. I'm have several other series saved to work on, as well. I'm just taking blind shots in the dark, but I'm hoping for a few...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

I often see barely related Amazon ads on pages here. Sometimes, I see ads that seem plain perverse -- ads for Apple TV on an apple pie recipe page, for example.I'm sure a lot of the most unrelated (and harmful) Amazon ads come from the 'choose keywords' feature in Amazon capsules.Might be helpful...
