    I am having a hard time understanding how we are supposed to use amazon.  I wrote this article all about a steam juicer and added an amazon capsule with the exact steam juicer I wrote about and it was snipped.  How can I appropriately link to it so that readers who are interested can purchase it??  Where would it be appropriate to add a red text "a" link?  If you wouldn't mind, take a look at the article and give me some pointers please?  Thanks!

      I scanned it quickly. Where have you mentioned your actual brand of juicer? You have to bring in a paragraph under the section Anatomy of a Steam Juicer, along the lines of "My own juicer is a XXX. I spent a while researching different models and makes and this is the one I chose because...." Make it as detailed as possible.

      You would add your link to the anchor text - the name of the juicer as represented by the XXX.

    I get what you are trying to do, but you can't just plunk an Amazon capsule in there without talking about the specific product. You've written a "how to" article and I don't believe you ever mentioned the name of the juicer you use.

    You could add a section at the end called something like "How to Choose a Steam Juicer" or "Recommended Juicers" where you discuss what to look for when picking a juicer, which juicer you chose, and why you liked it better than the others.

    Or you can add a section closer to the beginning that tells the reader you will be using a specific juicer for the demonstration, what you like about it, and why you recommend it. Make sure they know those photos are of the specific juicer you are recommending in action!

    I think both capsules and text links have their place. In this situation, I would use a text link instead of a capsule. Add it at the first instance of mentioning the product. "I use This Juicer because blah blah blah . . . "  Link the product name in that sentence.

    Good luck! Everyone who is successful with Amazon has their own way of doing things. You'll get the hang of it.

      You might also state why this juicer is better than other brands of juicer.  For example, maybe it does a better job of juicing certain foods.
