    Do you use Amazon capsules and, if so,do you make acceptable income from them?

    I've been looking at my earnings history and I don't see that I've made much from Amazon links. Am wondering is they are worth the work, except possibly some bigger ticket items.

    You will find much more information about Amazon Capsules posting your question at the Forums. There are more experts at the forums who don't frequent the Q&A. Post it at HubPages Community → Getting Help from the HubPages Community. There you will meet people who use them 'Successfully'.

    Anyway . . . I rarely use Amazon capsules. But, I don't have many Hubs anymore. Amazon capsule usage is restricted much more in the recent year. Especially with Hubs going to Niche sites. I see at your profile you have Hubs at the Niche Sites like Calorie Hooray!!!!!!!!

    That is a very good thing because more traffic will arrive from being there. But, used incorrectly the Hub has a good chance of not being featured or going to a Niche Site. Over usage on a singular Hub is very much frowned upon. Recommended is no more than two. One is preferred IF used.

    *** Amazon capsules have to be 'Directly' related to the title and the content

    *** Amazon capsules have to have 300 words describing, answering why recommended, and is best with personal experience

    So, if an article is about frying chicken then a capsule for a crock pot or a general cook book would not be be acceptable. One for a iron fry pan may be if related to the title, content, with those 300 words, and hopefully personal experience.

    Footnote: Capsules for books are the hardest to do IMHO

    I hope that helps a little . . .

      Thank you. And thanks for redirecting my future inquiries. I'm kind of out of practice in the HP community after just coming back.
