Do you let Amazon pick the products that are linked on your hub or do you pick them?
I always pick them, usually either books or movies related to my Hub or music by the artists I'm writing about.
I always pick them myself. I check them out on Amazon.com for the ones that are most highly recommended by reviewers and/or check them out myself doing comparisons. I try to pick the best option there is. Sometimes I may even summarize what the reviewers are saying, in a sentence or two, if I have no personal experience with the product.
I always pick them myself so they'll be items mentioned in, or related to, the contents of the hub. I see many hubs with Amazon items that are only very remotely related to the hub topic, or not at all, and have to wonder why the hub isn't flagged.
I pick my own. Although, when I was new to HubPages, it was more like the eBay capsules where you simply entered tags and they generated related products. I find that my own selected products tend to be more relevant.
