Once upon a time you could have multiple items in an Amazon capsule, but they changed the rules. I still have a few older hubs that have multiple items, because I never up date them. I think once you go in to make changes, they will want you to fix the problem before you can save it again.
I was also wanting to know why a search keyword only produces one result? Is there a way to cycle through options or do I have to choose the one book proposed?
Sometimes when this happens to me, I click on the result, and see if there is something more suitable in the section "People who bought this also bought......"
If nothing suits, just do a google search for the type of item you want from Amazon, get the item number, and enter this into your capsule search section.
Hope this is clear - I'm lousy at explaing things! :-(
If you want to use keywords, you want to make sure that your keywords are as specific as possible to get the results you want. So if you are getting something you don't quite like, you can tweak the keywords to get something more fitting. Remember, that this product will change over time. So the item you see today may not be what shows up tomorrow.
But I generally go straight to Amazon and choose a product, then input the product number in the capsule. This way, I am personally recommending a particular product, and can make sure that something weird doesn't pop up as a choice. This does mean I have to look at the capsules from time to time to make sure the product is still available.
You can only have one item in an E-bay or Amazon capsule on Hubpages.
Also, currently the rules say you can have 1 Amazon capsule for each 50 words of text, but it is better to have a higher ratio of words to capsule, say 150-200 words for each Amazon capsule.

I am confused by Amazon capsule use. The first time I used it, it was deleted and I found out it was because I didn't actually use the item myself. Okay, makes sense.A couple of days ago I added a capsule to my article because it related to the article and I use the item. I even explained how easy...

The nice thing about the new Amazon capsule is that it displays the description text in the same size as the rest of the hub. This can be beneficial and may turn into better sales. So I reorganized one of my hubs, moving much of my text from text capsules into the Amazon description fields. This...
