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:

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?

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?

Hi,It has been a while since I added new content and published two new articles today (the Valentine articles). I got emails "Your article could be featured", so I went in to remove a couple in-text links I added, leaving two Amazon capsules for each article (they range between 1,000 -...
