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.

Currently, we are allowed 2 text links within a hub for links to our website, blogs, or articles written elsewhere.But, if you don't join the HP Amazon program, do you know that those 2 Amazon text links are not extra ones? If you use 2 amazon links, then you have used up your quota of 2 personal...

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...

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

A while ago I submitted an article containing an amazon link to a niche site. The article followed Hubpages rules on Amazon links- review based on personal experience AND relevance to the article. The editors who looked at it asked me to remove one of the links, but otherwise said it was an indepth...
