My Google AdSense and Amazon programs are active. Though I have over 20 articles in niche (mainly in Wanderwisdom), I have not yet made a start with Amazon capsules. Since I opted for HubPages ad program, I was under the impression that HubPages team would place Amazon capsules as they would place the ads. They did not and once I tried introducing an Amazon capsule on an Owlcation article that was immediately removed by editors. What should I do to get started with Amazon program?
Hi Babu. You really need to be inserting Amazon text links and not capsules. Also, the Amazon items you include must (in some way) be essential to the article. If it isn't, the link will be removed, as you have discovered.
Briefly looking at your articles, there are several related to tourism. So, you could link to a tour guide, but should have experience of the book you are recommending and also explain why the reader needs it.

I was looking through your articles and trying to find how you could add an Amazon link. Adding books to the travel posts does not add much. I thought of the sugar article and thought you could add a good substitute you have found, but you do not really indicate one.
The only way Amazon works, and is accepted by HP, is if you add links to products that you have purchased and found useful. Mention it in your text, and then add an Amazon link to it.
For instance, in one of my articles, I will add "The most effective shampoo that I have found for this skin condition is (amazon link)benzoyl peroxide." The reader that has a dog with this condition can click on the link and buy the shampoo.
Do you have Amazon products available where you live? (We always used to just have books but Amazon is now selling products here too.) If you do, and you have used a product from Amazon to help you sleep, for example, you can add that to your article as long as it is related to the title.
That may or may not be okay with HP. I would recommend adding Amazon links to your articles as you write them, not going back and adding them later.
Thanks DrMark. Will follow your suggestions. Amazon is very active in India and I regularly purchase from Amazon. But I am not sure if any product I have purchased from Amazon is relevant to my articles. I see your point and so would add only when I come across anything relevant.

I am almost ready to publish a new article, and I want to add two Amazon Capsules. I know how to do it the old way. But I saw on lobobrandon and a few other's hubs a different way. There is just an orange "A" and what looks like a hyperlink, and when clicked, it takes the reader right to...

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...

Last month, and in other recent months, my Amazon earnings are almost twice as much as my Ad Program earnings, yet, every month, I get notices from Hubpages saying that they removed Amazon capsules from my articles. I add them back in and they take them back out, and so the dance continues. I am...

I will try in short because I explored whole day about HubPages and I still need some confirmation how to proceed on best way if possible?Before 2 years I lost AdSense because of stupid reasons like wrong keywords (I know, I was rookie) and since it was impossible for me to check all blogs + posts...

Why is it that excessive links to Amazon products seem to be permitted when they are added to the body of hub rather than as a Module on the side? In my naivety, I did not realise that this was permitted. Will these links survive when hubs are selected and moved to the niche sites?
