Am I allowed to make an Amazon Christmas gift guide?
I just recently got approved for all the ad programs. I love writing Christmas gift guides but someone told me hub pages is strict about when you can use Amazon capsules. Of course I would like to also make money so it seems like common sense to add the Amazon capsules but I don't want to get any trouble. Does anyone have any experience with this?
It's fine as long as you follow the rules. I have a hub with five Amazon capsules. It was moved to a niche site without any problems.
You need to have experience with anything you list in an Amazon ad (Either capsule or text link).
If you use a capsule, place your own description in the capsule explaining your use of the product and why you recommend it.
You also need to make sure the products you list relate to the title of your hub.
You need at least 300 words of content in the hub for each Amazon ad or link.

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)?

It is my understanding that we are only entitled to have two Amazon Ads on a Hub. I still see many Hubs with more than two Ads and also Hubs with several capsules which contain two Ads each. What is...

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?
