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.

This will probably get me hunted down and shot, but here goes…When I first started here, I plastered Amazon capsules all over the place; each and every one of them 8 products long. And then two more 8-mile long ones tacked side-by-side after comments.This lasted for about my first newbie month....

Hi everyone. I've made many articles and never once utilized the Amazon capsules; always seems like the spammy feeling they invoke outweighs the potential gain from them. I know it really goes case-by-case, but what are your thoughts? Lately I've been feeling like maybe one per article would be...

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?

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there a definitive rule that is being used to snip out the products capsules? I...

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 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...
