I recently wrote an article about meal prepping and added amazon capsules for each of the containers I used, each followed by a summary of what the advantages were to using this particular kind. However, when I posted this it was snipped and all of the Amazon capsules were removed. I am very confused if that is not the way to use them what is.
Marisa wrote some info on how to use Amazon properly:

Ignore the URL title, the hub has been updated now.
You can only have on capsule for every 300 words you write. Furthermore, there is no point in trying to sell similar products again and again. The capsules (and in text ads) serve as entry gates to Amazon...so if you list one item and someone clicks on it, for as long as they are on Amazon via that click, anything they buy becomes money in your pocket. Thus, even if they don't buy the item you listed, they may see a different one they like better and buy it...and then go on to buy totally unrelated products as well. Once you get them shopping, you can make a bundle if they buy the right things! Also, too many ads make your article look spammy...a big "no-no" on HP.
Apparently, they want to minimize the number of capsules and they allow only the ones strictly related to the article....
Mist of the time its automatically snipped, ie not by a real person but by a computer. So follow up by writing to them to explain the situation, and tell them why it needs to ne allowed.
Really? Can you let the rest of us know where you found out that capsules are snipped by a computer and not a person?

I thought articles should be limited to 1-2 products, however I have seen list based articles with multiple products (ideas for gifts) on niche site, Holidappy. Would...

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

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...

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...

Do Hubbers Still Use Amazon Capsules? Are the new rules changing the way you write?Just curious to know what others are doing. I think I will be using the Amazon Capsules very judiciously from now on, but I will have to step back and evaluate the effectiveness to decide how it fits in to my writing...
