Amazon Capsule not finding Amazon products via keywords
Hello, I'm a relative newbe (about 3 weeks)... and have created my Amazon Associates account and activated it on HubPages. But when I try to use an Amazon capsule to link to Amazon products via keywords, all I keep getting is "No Products Found" messages... even when I repeatedly click the link to Review Amazon Results. But when I then search Amazon itself using the very same keywords, I get hundreds of products. Are Amazon links broken in some way... or could the problem be something that I'm doing (or not doing)?
the easiest way to do it is to open a new browser page, go to amazon, type your search in THERE, and then copy/paste the link onto your Hub. easy AND faster (my opinion)
I appreaciate the suggestion, but I actually tried that first (before going to the Amazon Capsule)... and it didn't work either. The only results displayed on the Hub page were "No Results Found"!
I'm having this same problem - not always, just on some products. For instance, I've written a hub on the new Playstation Vita - it is available to pre-order in 2 iterations on Amazon, but when i copy and paste OR type in the ASIN, I get "no results found".
On other hubs they link straight away, it's just some. Neither the ASIN nor the URL work.
Does anyone have any advice? It's driving me mad!!
So it's not just you, Dave!!
I am having the same problem with pasting - I feel like I spend more time trying to get this right than hubbing - very frustrating!

What is up with this? I can't tell you the number of times I've had to redo, change or entirely delete my amazon capsules because of 'missing products' that aren't really missing. What is the issue here? I'm afraid to...

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank...

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...
