I am new here and have not used the Amazon capsules yet. I am an Amazon Prime Member and I cook a lot. I was thinking about doing a Hub on recipe and incorporating an Amazon Capsule into it because I purchase items that I use to cook with through Amazon.
I was wondering what template you would suggest for a recipe and cooking Hub? Can I get a capsule for any item that I bought through Amazon to use on my Hub? Are there any tips that you would give or suggestion for doing this?
As far as you know do recipe and cooking Hubs do well?
Thank you so much!
You can use a capsule for anything Amazon sells, whether you purchased one or not.
But unless your hub as centered on, and discussing, that specific item, or perhaps it is rare (hard to find) and necessary for whatever your hub is about, don't bother. Items advertised must be "pertinent" to your hub, and that means that it is to a large degree the topic of the hub.
A kitchen utensil (or food product), unless it is discussed at length, is necessary for the recipe and rare, will not qualify and the hub deemed overly promotional.
when you are writing your hub you will see that you can choose a template especially for cooking and recipe hubs or you can just choose a basic article or copy the template from one of your existing hubs. For recipe hubs especially the provided template is very helpful.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

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 only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...

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...
