Why does an amazon product link on one of my hubs not have my amazon associates ID in it?
I have an amazon associates account and insert amazon product links on my hubs via amazon capsules where all I do is enter the ASIN of those products. I noticed that in one of my hubs when I click on an amazon product my amazon associates ID is not in the URL but instead of that ID it just says the word hubpages. Does anyone know why this is happening? How can this be fixed? And does that mean that if anyone buys something from amazon via that link that it won't count toward my earnings?
Reload the page a few times and see if it changes.
With all Hubpages revenue (I think?), it alternates: 60% of the time, the links pay us, and 40% of the time they pay Hubpages. There's probably some little automated randomizer that rolls the dice and picks which affiliate ID to use each time someone views a page.

And why can't I add any Amazon capsules? If they're not allowed, then why are they even an option? The word count doesn't seem to matter because I can have over 2,000 words but have to remove them all before the hubs will become featured again. Either way, I like the color and...

I had an Amazon Associate's account for almost just as long as I've had my Hubpages account. While I never really earned much on it, I still appreciated the little income I would get, especially around Halloween. I then tried to sign up for the Hubpages Amazon program, but after trying it for a...

Will placing a direct Amazon product link in the hub pay if someone buys the product from it?I know that if someone clicks on a product in the Amazon capsule and buys it then the hubber gets paid for it. But what if someone clicks on a direct link to an Amazon product and then buys it, will the...
