    Sometimes my hub get rejected because It's "Spammy". Although I think I wrote it better than some previous accepted ones! I added some books from amazon related to my topic. is that considered spammy? and if it does, then in what case can I add amazon capsule?
    I also , for example, have a lot of experience in electronic systems such as intrusion alarm, fire alarm, smart home, etc.. and I tried to write a topic about how to choose the right intrusion alarm system with some amazon adds for every kind I describe in details. but It also get rejected and considered spammy.
    So I don't understand very well how to deal with amazon capsule without getting rejected.

    I'm new here and still learning. Please help!

      Hi there, welcome.

      Hubs will be considered 'spammy' if you add Amazon capsules that have no connection to the substance of the article. You have to show that the item is necessary to the process described in the article, or that you have personal experience of the item and so recommend it to provide extra information to your article.

      For example, in your hub "Why Do Business Plans Get Rejected" Missing a question mark, by the way. Or rewrite it to "Why Business Plans Get Rejected"

      Anyway, you have an Amazon capsule with a book, "How to Write a Business Plan". That does not fit with the premise of the article. You might think it does, but it doesn't. And I expect you have never read the book either? You haven't mentioned the book in your text. You haven't said why you've recommended it. It's just sitting there.

      That's why your hubs are rejected as spammy. Problem is, it's not spam at all, it's just a HubPages requirement that you have a really good reason for including the book.

      In addition to what RaggedEdge has stated, using too many links is also spammy, even if they are to your own articles.  They want readers to stay on the page.

      1. Make sure the product is closely connected to the hub topic.
      2. Make sure you have read the book/used the item yourself.
      3. Give your reasons why you recommend the book/item.

      Tip 1: Regarding books - it's possible to download sample text of any Kindle book. This usually covers the introduction and maybe a little bit more. You can often garner useful information, including an author quote from this, thus showing you have knowledge of the book.

      Tip 2: I find that in-text links work better than capsules.
