I went to add another product to an existing hub created last month, and all products disappeared, leaving the no products label. I took off the third product and the other two showed again. I added it, and all three disappeared again.
Added the third product to a different capsule, and it shows fine. Added it back to the original, and all products disappeared.
Gave up and just have the one product in the one capsule. Working fine for now.
We can't seem to replicate this. Could you email a link to the hub in question and the problem product to the team email box?
I emailed team at hubpages dot com last night.
Today, I have noticed many hubs with amazon products, some of capsules say that no products are available, but I'm not sure if it's the same situation my dad and I were experiencing yesterday, or if none of the products in the capsule were available.
On a side note, why is it that sometimes you can see a product on amazon, but when you paste the asin number, HubPages says the product doesn't exist? This is aside from one product not existing and the entire capsule saying nothing available even if the other products pull up.
I experienced the same problem with products disappearing, while I was editing. But when I stopped editing and saved, everything looked fine.
I think the other problem. The frustration of seeing products on Amazon and then getting the message "no products available" has to do with some of the merchants (such as Macy's) who use Amazon. They have very strict rules about what products an affiliate can use - because they have agreements with brands that don't want to be on affiliate sites. I'm a Macy's affilate and they don't include those brands in the data feed available to us. It may be the same sort of thing. Amazon is okay, we're not. Just a guess though.
The problem isn't the one item not showing, but the one item causing nothing to show, but working in a capsule on its own. I can edit and save, and still nothing shows. Like I said, I saw many like that today, but because they're not my hubs, I don't know if there was only one product that is no longer available or if one item is causing nothing to show. I only assume its the same or similar issue I have bee experiencing, because all of he other amazon capsules in the same hubs had a full 4 per capsule.
I didn't think about other sellers using amazon not allowing another company to sell the products, but if it's still through amazon, how is it different? Amazon is still selling the product, not HubPages.
Yep, I've been experiencing this also.
I should have searched better before I wrote my own topic about it
Maddie. I have these two hubs that I spotted that do not show amazon products when in regular view, but you can see them in the edit view.
The capsule titled Buy Natural Dog Shampoo and Buy Dog Conditioner
The capsules titled Dog Sweaters and Dog T- Shirts
This hub has the same problem as yesterday
with this item number B000OS9SRE
We're working on it, guys, but we can't seem to replicate the original problem Whitney reported. We do need to make some changes to the Amazon capsule because of some changes on their end, by August 15th, so perhaps that will clear up the problems.
Yea... In edit view I can see all of the products and full capsules, but when published, nothing is visible.
If you aren't able to fix the original problem, or if they can't clear it up on their end, does that mean that I should go through all hubs and find the ones that are messed up and manually fix by finding which product is causing the entire capsule to so "no products available"? :-/
From what I can see none of the amazon product photos are showing up on any of my hubs. Looks yucky. Hopefully, this is fixed with the updates.
Oh me too!!! My hubs look crappy as well. This isn't going to be great for sales. Wow first my hubber score tanks and then this. I'm have not such a great day at hubpages.
I've emailed Maddie about this to make sure that they are aware of the extent of the problem. Between one thing and another, this is a totally crappy day.
Mine seem to have been corrected, at least the ones that I posted, to include the initial one that caused this thread to be opened. I don't have time to check out all of mine, so I'm going to hope that the others are ok.
Mine are not okay. If others are experiencing this problem, perhaps you should also email the hub team and let them know. So they don't think that it's isolated. I have not received any reply from Maddie or anyone else in response to my email.
I can live with an oddball hubber score, but missing product images are definitely a revenue killer. I make most of my money from Amazon at Hubpages.
Um the 15th is a week. Well nothing I can do about this. Work on some other revenue stream.
We may have it done before then, that's just the deadline. We're doing our very, very best. What with the EBay mess, things have been pretty hectic over here. Of course, we're just as invested as you are in making sure all revenue streams are fully optimized.
Do you have specific examples where images aren't showing up? I looked at several of Janet21 and Nelle Hoxie's hubs and they all had amazon images in them.
I just took a look at five of my hubs and not one has an amazon image displaying. I am certain that none of them do, atleast when I am viewing them. If it is not a localized problem, do you think it is a web browsing issue? I am on IE.
I also looked at a few of wordscribe41 and Nelle's hubs and don't see any amazon images displaying there either.
Here's one of my many examples:
I see images in the amazon capsule in that hub. Perhaps this is a localized issue with amazons image servers.
Greetings - I had a similar problem with three of the hubs I published earlier this week. The Amazon products appeared correctly until I published and then vanished, leaving only the N
"No Amazon Products Found" notice.
This happened, as I mentioned, with three of the HubMob posts. I had to go back in on three consecutive days to get the ads to "stick". It was frustrating because the particular products that wouldn't "stick" in one capsule would display fine in another.
They seem to be alright now, but it was an annoying few days, there.
The only thing I did differently with these from any other hubs I have worked on was that I created about four at the same time (well, sequentially,) but here's the process I used...
I "answered the question", created the URL and title, populated the links, chose the products for the ad capsules, and uploaded all the photos to their capsules for that Hub. Then I saved the Hub unpublished and went on to the next title I wanted to use. I then went back to insert the text and finished each one, publishing it and connecting to facebook as I completed each in turn.
Any ideas what might have caused it, or how I might avoid it in future?
I just checked 5 hubs. The first hub I wrote with Amazon capsules, the last one and 3 in the middle. I can't see product images in any of them.
But I am happy that others might be able to. Maybe they'll buy something.
Seriously I had my best day ever with Amazon yesterday. And was hoping for another today.
Hmm, ok it does seem to be an issue only with IE. We should have it fixed shortly.
Oh good, I'm so stressed that I took my chaise lounge/umbrella to the beach and am working here. It is soothing my soul and my spirits are starting to lift.
I was using google chrome when I noticed this.
I have found that IE is almost always the culprit in situations such as this.
Oh I use IE too. And I looked at Janet21's and Whitney's hubs and I can't see any Amazon images on them either.
When i first noticed it today, i was a bit worried. No images on amazon capsules but product names and prices only. Feel much better that something is being done about it.
Never made any Amazon sales, but who knows when my lucky day will come.

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...

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...

Not that I was making any money from them, but why has my directly related Amazon product link been snipped in the hub-pro edit ?I could understand snipped competitor products, but what is the point of having ebay / amazon capsules if they are being removed from the niche sites?

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...

I am placing this message here as Amazon capsules are advertisements - however, if this is incorrect, my apologies.Problem: Going back over my hubs, I have found several instances where the price displayed in my Amazon capsule is not the same as the price the viewer would see if they clicked...
