I have included Amazon capsules recently to several of my hubs. They were related to the article and in my view improves the user experience as these made several purchases. E. G. I have a hub about uses and side effects of candid mouth paint and included Amazon capsule to buy candid mouth paint and uses and side effects of candid b cream with Amazon capsule of candid lotion. They made several purchases as well. But suddenly snip edited these posts to remove them. What's the point of having Amazon ad program if we are not allowed to put relevant products in them.
Did you mention them in the text? Explain how well they worked for you? If you can wrangle them into the writing, you can add a text link to them. Often works much better. Just plonking one down in the hub isn't encouraged by HP any longer.
When you say 'candid', do you mean 'candida'? Just checked - you do mean 'candid'. That means something completely different in the UK
Thanks for reply. It's candid mouth paint and it's an antifungal product for fungal infections. That's their brand name. Again how to put text link that is accepted by Amazon ad program. What I did was to put Amazon widget straight from the editing interface. Is it no longer allowed. Again thanks for your reply
I see your article is on HealDove. The editing team is especially careful about promotional links there. The practice of medicine and promotion of related products is regulated in the US and HubPages does not want to fall foul of the law.

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?
