Does our eBay capsule need to be updated with new products, if so how often?
In order to ensure ongoing ebay commissions and that the links to products shown are still available, do we need to go into each hub and run a new search for new products? If so, how often should it be updated. Does it update automatically? My concern is items on ebay are available for a short time, sell and when they are not available; the link may just go to the search box on the main page instead of a specific or themed product.
Good question. Yes, I do update my E-Bay capsules on occasion because the turnover rate at E-Bay is very high.
In my opinion it is not necessary. eBay capsules only let us to choose certain keywords, not specific products. Therefore it updates automatically each time a featured/most relevant product on your capsule is deleted/not listed anymore.
As maybe you already know, there were almost 2 whole years when I was kinda 'away' from HubPages. During this time I payed no attention to my hubs/capsules/account/anything at all and still, my capsules are still working.
On the other hand, Amazon capsules are different - in case you choose products on your own and don't let the capsule choose the most relevant products according to the keyword(s) given. These may require update more often, because once the product is gone, you have to select a new one. According to my experience, these are also very rare, so basically it is enough to re-select some products once you feel like there is a new one that might be even more relevant to your hub.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

We just released a small update to the site. Among a slew of bug fixes and small updates, there are two notable changes.The first is that you can follow the comments on a hub, and receive email notifications when new comments are made. Just click the follow button near the top of the...

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 only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

I went to add another product to an existing hub created last month, and all products disappeared, leaving the no products label. I took off the third product and the other two showed again. I added it, and all three disappeared again.Added the third product to a different capsule, and it shows...

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...

Had never done a “sales” hub before so decided to try. Have tweaked and tweaked this hub but it still keeps on being not featured due to quality. Getting a little T’d . . . http://geminifox.hubpages.com/hub/Green … t-Friendly- Have every single one of the “goal” (attributes) boxes...
