I am new to HubPages. I published a new hubpage yesterday. My Google AdSense is working without any problem. However, my Amazon Affiliate is not working properly. I get the message "No Amazon results found". I added Amazon ads by inserting Amazon capsules. If I try using code capsules to place Amazon ads,will it resolve my problem?
No it won't. You've misunderstood how a code capsule works. It's not for inserting functional affiliate codes in a hub.
Have you clicked on 'edit' and the either a) entered a keyword or b) chosen to self select products?
For example, if I wrote a soccer hub.... I would edit the capsule to show 'soccer' items, or I would go to Amazon.com and choose soccer items to list.
You have to initiative that.
I've had the same thing recently when adding specific product urls from the amazon site. The capsule just can't find certain products.
When a specific Amazon product becomes "Currently Unavailable" at Amazon side, Amazon capsule returns this. As a solution, you should regularly check your hubs for such links & change them. Surely, it would be very time consuming even with 50 hubs.
Try reducing the number of Keywords, or manually finding the products on amazon and clicking 'choose specific products'. A mistake I sometimes make is using the Amazon.co.uk urls by mistake, this could be causing problems!
I have the same problem, i reducing the number of items and it works. but it's hard to do it all the time.
i have to check my hubs every moment and try to fix amazon capsules
After I read this post, I decided to take a second look at my hubs, and my amazon ads were gone. And, I figured out why.
The keyword I used to find my selected ads had not changed, but, the Category placement I selected did change.
My music was under DVD instead of the music category where I originally had them. I changed it back to music, and all my original ads appeared.
My Movie categories were also somehow switched to DVD. I put them back under Video, and they all returned.
So. my question is. How did my category get switched. Don't I have to do that myself when I use Capsules? I'm glad someone mentioned this, because I am trying very hard to make money with Amazon. And, if it is that unreliable, that's not good.

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green...

Hi folks! I'm editing some hubs, and I have a couple of questions:1. I notice there has been a lot of talk from HP staff lately that seems to discourage use of Amazon capsules, preferring anchor text links...

I've started writing more articles here after not being so active for a year or so. One of the reasons I was discouraged from putting time into HubPages was the removal of Amazon capsules. This had a hugely detrimental...

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...

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 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...
