    I cannot link with a specific product on Amazon - help!

    I cannot link with a product that I know exists either by typing in URL or keyword search - Amazon capsule comes up with no results. I have also tried linking to my website through the "Link Capsule" and this comes up with "Bad Link". Without these links my Hub is worthless and so I will not post it. Can anyone help?

    Don't panic.

    You can go to the amazon product page.

    Find the product details

    Copy the product ASIN onto your computer.

    Go to your hub.

    Click edit and create an amazon capsule.

    Select link to specific item.

    Paste the ASIN from your computer into one of the product boxes.

    Click preview to check the item appears then if it does save the capsule .

    Hope this helps.

    Check to make sure your set (computer and internet) is working well.  If okay, the trouble lies in hubpages, not in your system.  A part of its system may have crashed or doing some repair.  Usually a notice to the effect is posted to warn us users.  Don't get alarmed.  Wait for a reasonable period of time,  If trouble persists, e-mail hubpages your concern.

    To link or display a product(s) you like by keyword is very easy.  Just type a word or two (usually 1 word) which is closely related to your content.  If the result is negative,  delete the keyword and replace it with another until you get your desired product.  Hope this helps.
