    I have added relevant in-test links in my hubs to Amazon products but they always seem to be removed. In a recent hub on crystals I added one in-text link to buy one of teh stones mentioned but it was removed when the hub was chosen for a niche site. The link didn't disrubt the text or reading flow in any way. I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong with them so any help would be appreciated. With the earnings drop I was hoping to add the links for another possile source of income.

    If you follow theraggededge┬┤s suggestion at this thread you are unlikely to have your link snipped. … ost4067657
    I was just reading your article on obtaining crystals in bulk, and you suggest getting them from a wholesaler or ebay. If you add an Amazon link to an article where you have already told people that you do not get crystals from ebay, I think any editor is going to come along and snip that link.

      Thank you, I will look at that. It wasn't that hub I added a link too but I guess saying where I buy in another could have an infulence. Thank you.

    If a page is not about a product or products, not sure an Amazon link has any place on it at all.

    If readers are searching for a product, Amazon links can be helpful. If readers are searching simply for info, an Amazon link is just one more irritating ad.

      That is a good point. My thinking was that if someone was reading my hub and then wanted to buy the crystal mentioned, then a link could be helpful.

    HubPages is very specific about Amazon links. You have to have personal experience with the product you are linking to. Just something that's related to your article is not good enough.

    You just need a sentence to explain why you like the specific product you're recommending.
