Can someone give me a step-by-step method to add Amazon to my hub?
I understand about clicking on the Amazon capsule and editing it on the bottom of my hub. I have my keywords in and setup the info. When I clicked on "preview results" I got nothing. Then I saved it, checked and it said "no amazon results found". I also went to Amazon and searched for my keywords and found several results. I see other comments about Amazon html, being accepted. I think this is where I've missed a step. I'm so confused. Please help and thank you in advance.
Hi Brigitte - the method I prefer is to specifically choose products. So go into edit mode for your hub and open your amazon capsule - click choose specific products. ]
Then in another window open up amazon.com and search for a product you think will work well with your hub. When you find one you like copy the url of the amazon page (which is in the address bar at the top of your screen).
Paste the url into your amazon capsule. If you want more products, continue with the same process until you have as many as you want. Click save. You should now see the products you have chosen in your amazon capsule.
If you want to move the capsule click on the up arrow, until it's where you want it. If you want the capsule on the right of a text box click the right arrow.
I hope that helps
Thank you so much for you simple and accurate answer. It was so very easy to follow. You just became my new hero!
I do have one more silly question though. Now that I have the Amazon links there, how does Amazon know to credit ME with any impending sale? I understand how affiliate links work, but I haven't joined an Amazon affiliate program?

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...

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...

It is my understanding that we are only entitled to have two Amazon Ads on a Hub. I still see many Hubs with more than two Ads and also Hubs with several capsules which contain two Ads each. What is the official ruling about this please?
