I have had several hubs snipped in the last few days (thought the email said sniped, lol!) and I notice that the main things being taken out of my hubs were Amazon capsules. I don't go crazy putting them everywhere in my hubs, maybe like one or two really relevant ones, so I'm not sure why they were snipped. I do earn money from those, so I'd like to see them go back in, but I don't want to disturb the process... Any insight?
We do allow product capsules, though the rules about their requirements are more strict than on HubPages. You must demonstrate personal experience with the product (why do you recommend it personally and how do you like yours?) and the product must also be both directly related to the Hub's subject and be necessary to the reader's experience. Take the time to explain why the reader needs the item to complete the instructions or gain further information about your Hub's subject and make sure the product is something the average person is not likely to already own.
It looks like we left one product and removed the other in one of your Hubs. Personally, I don't think both are needed; if you would prefer the other product, you are welcome to switch them out. In the other Hub, I am also not sure the product is needed. If you are going to include a book, you should give specific reasons why you feel this particular book is the best option and show that you have read the book.
As for the misspelling, I looked at our emails and couldn't find the word "sniped". Would you mind double checking, and if you still see the error, forwarding the email to me? Thank you!!
Mine still has one product capsual remainng (which is directly related to the product). The others which promote the competitors to the product have gone. I really though they were relevant and useful but it appears HP has other ideas.
I wrote a long post about us snipping Amazon capsules here. http://hubpages.com/community/forum/136 … ost2809383
I found out today that one of my articles had been moved to a niche site and it still has the Amazon capsule. If it is related to your topic then the capsule will stay.

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not...

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...
