    On one of my hubs I have only one eBay capsule and the hub has 841 words with many photos, videos, etc.  The automated message says "This hub contains a high ratio of products to text."  Anyone else noticing messages like this?

      I received one that I had an affiliate link that wasn't within my text. The program they use to detect these things isn't always accurate.

        This happened to me too. I had 2 affiliate links but it kept giving me the message that i had 4.
        It was so weird because i couldn't find the extra 2 it kept pointing out. Eventually, i just ignored it and it went away after hitting 'done editing' button the second time.

      I have problems with the eBay capsule.  When I try to use it, it shows up with my hub title already in it and the curser won't show up in the other spaces so I can't do anything.  I only made $.52 so far and don't get anymore then that.  I wonder if that is the reason.

      Hi Peggy.
      I looked at that Hub and see the issue you are describing.
      I have passed this information to our engineering team, so hopefully we can determine and address the issue soon.
      Thanks for reporting the issue and for your continued patience.

      I see the issue. I missed the fact that there are 9 eBay capsules at the end of that Hub. Right now they are not returning any results.

      If you remove these 9 empty product capsules at the end of the Hub then that should address the issue.

        Hi Matthew,

        That is certainly curious!  I never added that many eBay capsules myself.  Must have been some type of glitch?  Thanks for noticing that.  I just eliminated them so the problem should now be solved.

    I had this the other week and it had something to do with how I added photos in. I can't quite remember I'm sorry but try thinkering with your media within the article.
