    Hello to my sweet followers and those who are not my followers.
    Tonight is Friday, Aug. 9, and I need your help.
    I have tried to write a few hubs that I have placed Amazon capsules on them
    and I did use what (some) HP people told me how to write this type of hub
    the right way, so long story short. I have tried both ways: one, to write more
    personal information about my products and two, not to write so much, so
    what do I do?
    So all of you who are experts at this type of hub . . .HELP! Pleas respond
    with whatever help you can give me.
    My Sincere Thanks to You All and may God bless you.
    Kenneth

      I believe that HP prefers a link in the text rather than a capsule.  That's what I have used with no problem.

      I have had some success years ago using the Amazon capsules.  Then HubPages began limiting us to just one capsule that linked to a product related to the content of the Hub.  I haven't had any Amazon earnings in the past few years and rarely include the Amazon capsule in my current Hubs.  The comments below suggesting using a link to a relevant Amazon product is news to me but maybe this is what we have to do.  I'll keep following this discussion and hopefully learn somethin new - thanks for posting the question.

      Rupert . . .kind? Does the hub that I write have to talk (exactly) about the item that I am placing on Amazon? I have been told NOT to use the term "I" in my copy and another said TO use it. But to not forget to write personal info in the Description slot on the Amazon set-up before I save the item and verbiage.
      I have had two Capsules and one deleted by HP Moderator, so I have been using ONE Amazon capsule . . .so my question is:
      Is there a special brand of hub that I need to be publishing---a hub that states that "I" actually use the capsule used on my hub?
      I just need some good pointers since I am new to putting Amazon and not having it deleted.
      Thank you all and God bless you for the help ahead of time.

        The answer to your question is yes.  You do have to talk about your experience with the Amazon product, so your hub and the product must be related. In other words, you wouldn't be reviewing a lawncare product in a hub about pets.  But if you were writing a hub about pet grooming, then it would make sense to do a review of a grooming product on Amazon that you have used and provide a link to that product on Amazon.

          OldRoses; that does sound more sensible than the confused answers that I have been told about. And one more thing: how do I JUST put a link to my item that I am selling? Do I copy/paste the item from the Amazon URL? This might eliminate talking about my item twice, right?

            If I remember correctly, I highlighted the name of the product, hit the little link  icon and pasted the Amazon URL that I had copied from the product page.  Sorry, I don't do a lot of Amazon products.

              OldRoses . . .I did what you did. Kinda. I went to the item that I was writing about and just went up to top of the Amazon page and copied the URL from the bar and pasted it below the text below the item . . .the small Red "A" did show-up by my URL. Please help me to pray that these items sell because I surely need a pay-out because I need the money to purchase something that I have needed for a long time. Thanks so much, OldRoses

                You're welcome.  Good luck!

    I'm a bit out of my depth here. The only thing I know about Amazon capsules is that you have to have personally used whatever you are linking to. I have linked to a few books but they were deleted so I don't bother with them anymore. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

      Kenna: thanks so much. I have published one a couple of hours ago entitled "Air Rifles No Matter The Brand, Should Be Handed With Care, Safety," and I need you both to call them up and check them for me.
      My Sincere Thanks!

    I don't see it. Is it approved by HP?

    Kenna, I just checked into my Articles section and it was there. Is that a good sign?

  7. Kenna McHugh profile image91

    There is a symbol next to the article that indicates it's approved. It takes a while on weekends.
