I have a few questions regarding adding Amazon links to my hubs. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I have already added a couple links to one of my articles and have actually generated a couple sales. Now I would like to start adding more to my current and future articles but I'm wondering what the best way is to go about it. I just worry that if I start adding links to my articles that the moderators will just remove them even worse, un-feature my hubs.
From experience do you have better luck with using the Amazon links or the capsules?
Should I add them to the end of my article or throughout?
For adding links, do I need to describe the product or can I just add links to the body of my text?
How many links or campus am I allowed to add per article?
Just overall wondering what is the best way to add Amazon links without reducing the quality of my article.
Thanks in advance for any advice or tips.
Don't fall into the trap of thinking that the more ads you place, the more you will make. One or two in text links, properly done, can serve as portals through which readers can start shopping for your items as well as many others. Each time they buy something during that one visit, you earn! So, one or two links that will benefit the reader in some way, relate directly to the topic and be products you not only have used yourself or an talk about someone close to you using but also discusses why your product is better than others of its type. It helps if you sell products that are difficult to find or unusual.
You should only use Amazon if you have bought the product yourself. For example if its a book you are selling then write a quick review in the box or underneath. They only jump on you if you add loads for no reason. And of course it must be about what you have written. I tend to add one or two at the most. The first one just under the first text box of writing. Then one near the end
Nell, do you have any articles that do especially well? Back before the change, I used to make a lot through Amazon. I finally got rid of all of the capsules and links about a year back, but if there's a way to make them work, I would be willing to give it a try again.

I have always added my Products via a keyword search but I have been asked to add a couple of products via links instead. I am not sure whether my being in the UK makes a difference but should I be adding links from Amazon.com or from Amazon UK? I know that most of my traffic still...

I understand the editing process, quality control and for articles not to appear "spammy" My article was about slat chlorine generators and a sentence in there about testing salinity levels in the water. "This can be done by using a salt test meter or salt test strips" I...

The search facility for the Links Tool within the Text Capsule is Busted. It does not show suggestions for your own hubs to link to or any other suggestions.

I am yet to successfully publish any articles with amazon products. I am trying to be clear on the requirements for these articles. 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 so tired of trying to second guess the requirements. It seems that it takes 2-3 edits to go from UF engagement to Feature. Could someone please check out my recent edit which I edited again after getting the circle? I removed 1 of the 2 Zazzle links and another to a blog which may have been...
