    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.

      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 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.

    Hi Alex,
    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 doubt this is true.  Have never read or seen anything that supports it.  Also, if capsules are automatically snipped, why do so many of us still have them???
