Can you define exactly what 'spammy elements' mean when publishing an article hub?
How to get articles features whilst adding Amazon links for products etc. What exactly are spammy emelment? Thanks
HubPages doesn't like more than two links to any site, and more than one Amazon capsule in any article. (Maybe two, of the article is really long.) Amazon products must be mentioned in the article, and be necessary to the article. Your article must also not be overly promotional, meaning it's solely about selling you, or selling your web site, or selling products.
To begin to understand what Spammy Elements are begin at this link at the FAQ. It is titled; How does Hubpages define Spam? I am not sure how up-to-date it is. More answers may received on what spammy elements are and how to use Amazon capsules can be received by posting at the Forums.
A note is when you get the generic letter from HP saying one reason is it may be due to spammy elements does not mean it is because it has spammy elements. It may be because of the quality of the article.
Amazon capsules need to be specific to the article topic. That is guided by the title and content. Today there must be a personal recommendation in the sense you have used the product with reasons why you recommend it. And, today it is a strong recommendation to use in text links for Amazon products instead of capsules.
Here is a link to information about Amazon capsules or in-text links: https://hubpages.com/faq/#word-per-product
Crucial information, Tim, thanks for sharing this knowledge. I will study the article, and take heed by what you have written here. You have made clear important steps laid down in a simple plain way that I understand
I wish Hubpages wouldn't complicate things by using jargon, when the meaning is actually very simple.
"Spammy elements" just means that you have one or more links to Amazon products, or other websites, that are against HubPages' rules.
I wrote an article explaining exactly how to use links "legally":

thanks for the explanation. After reading the informative advice from yourself and fellow hubbers comments, I have around 80 articles and only 1 featured. I have a lot of work to do I know where I am going wrong.

So, this is the third time HP has snipped Amazon from my hubs. Every time one of my Hubs is edited by HubPages to add to a network site they snip any Amazon capsules on the Hub. The Amazon capsule is always extremely relevant to the topic discussed and is not spammy, yet HubPages doesn't seem to...
