I am getting a migraine and my hubby is wondering why I havent cleaned the house for 3 days.
The hub that Darkside referred to me was excellent. Very thorough. As well as relache's comment on putting a minus sign.
But honestly could it be my computer (or my brain)?? I cant get the capsule for Amazon to work. I am trying to use the ISBN # for a book and it won't work. I tried the minus sign twice and it worked now it won't. Do you have to make a new capsule for each amazon product or group. I am trying to add some products and a few books. Which brings me to another question if I use the ISBN # it will just bring the reader to the site for the book not the one I am selling in particular.
Also that little icon with the spinning wheel "working" just keeps going. what is it working on.
I am going to close my laptop, rub it a few times, and chant positive thoughts.
If you're entering an ISBN or ASIN you shouldn't need a minus sign.
In fact a minus sign will most likely cause the process to fail.
Yes, you need a separate Amazon capsule for each keyword if you want to include products with different keywords.
If you are using ASIN rather than keywords, they can be a varied as you like within the one capsule.
The first tab in the Amazon capsule lets you choose whether to use keywords or ASIN.
Actually when I plug a keyword and set it at four items I am trying to keep a couple of the ones that come up, and was told to type the ones I dont want preceded with a minus sign. This did work the first couple of times but now doesn't. I will try to make a new capsule for each different group of products. I also don't want to overdo. The ASIN and ISBN has not worked as of yet. But I understand if the item is sold by a third party it may not work. How do you know this or do you have to keep on trying.
I appreciate the help I am sure it's hard to offer advice or comments when you cant really see what I am doing. Hopefully I am explaining myself right.
I've made some screenshots with accompanying captions. Hopefully it'll be a little more easier to understand.

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank...

I often see barely related Amazon ads on pages here. Sometimes, I see ads that seem plain perverse -- ads for Apple TV on an apple pie recipe page, for example.I'm sure a lot of the most unrelated (and harmful) Amazon...

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...
