    Is anyone else having trouble using the Amazon capsule - I cannot seem to make it work!

    If you don't tell it otherwise, the Amazon capsule will use ALL the words in the capsule title to search. If there is not a match for all the words, nothing will appear.

    To keep the title and to better control what appears, use the right of the two buttons: "Choose keywords". Enter one or two words, and click "Preview Amazon results". This will show you what is going to appear.

    For example, if you write a book review, enter the exact title in the keywords, and limit the capsule to just one result. Then, you have a picture of the book, and viewers can click and buy it.

    (Also, I just checked on a hub of mine- the Amazon capsule is working fine, 10 am PST, 1-13-12)

    Mine didn't seem to work at first, but after I waited a few days, everything was good.  I use the key words function because it's easier than searching the URL's.

    I am having trouble getting the amazon capsule to work too! I tried using url's and the products wouldn't show up so I tried using keyword (s) and still nothing! I am so frustrated because I spent a long time trying to create this hub and now I cannot use an amazon capsule (which is my only source of monetization on hubpages).

    I even tried only having one result to having 3,4,5 and nothing comes up. I tried the keyword "phobia," "phobias + anxiety," among other alterations and still no luck. I suppose I will stick with other sources of earning money online...
