How to use the Amazon capsules in my articles for monetization?
Though I have about 529 articles, I haven't earned almost anything so far through this capsule or the Amazon affiliate marketing program. Please inform me how to monetize my accounts properly through these Amazon earning programs.
Also, the google ads displayed in our accounts are relevant to the article topic?
HubPages does not want us to use Amazon capsules in our articles. They encourage the use of inline text links. Select your anchor text, click the link button on the bar and paste the URL for the Amazon product that you want to link. Select affiliate link and then save.
Thanks for your information. I don't know about inline text links and anchor text. Can you please tell me about it?
When referencing the item in your article (in a normal text capsule), highlight the item name. Click on the link icon (chain) in the toolbar. Then click on the Amazon tab. Hopefully your item will be in the list. Select it, click Save. The 'anchor text' (name of the item) will be red with an 'A' in front of it.
For an example, if you click on my profile photo, then look for an article called "Witchcraft Empowers Women", scroll down the page and under "What books do you recommend?" you'll see two examples of Amazon links embedded in the text. Notice how they are referenced naturally in the writing.
Hope that helps, but if you have problems, let us know.
Thanks for the information. I want to know whether we can delete the product that we have linked once and replace it with a new product?
While opening a new capsule, select the Amazon from the menu. You will get a capsule in which there is a place where you can paste the http page address of the relevant item selling in Amazon. You can give a heading also to this capsule.
Please note that item should be available in Amazon and relevant to your article.
You have also to configure Amazon program in your earnings setting and get it active.
I stopped putting in Amazon capsules because they were always snipped on the grounds that I was not offering a personal recommendation for the product. So now, all I have to do is put in an in-line link? This would work well for me as I write a lot of historical articles for which relevant good books abound.
Is there any way to see what products we've sold using the HP Amazon program? I'm accustomed to seeing this on the Amazon affiliate program earnings page, so are we now out of luck in this department?
Or do we simply have to trust HP to get it right? I hope this isn't the case!
Go to the Earnings Tab and select "Amazon Sales Report". It will show what you have sold, the price, your commission, date shipped, etc.
I did. I see everything but the items sold.
You're looking at "Amazon Program Reports". That's the wrong one. On the Earnings tab, there should be a gray bar at the top that has the categories: Settings, Earnings Reports, Amazon Sales Report, Balance History and Referral Trackers. You want to click on "Amazon Sales Reports". If you are having trouble finding it, it should appear directly underneath the word Profile.
Thanks OldRoses, I am benefited by the information you shared.

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there a definitive rule that is being used to snip out the products capsules? I...

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...

Not really, because I have a job. But I did have my Amazon capsule snipped from one of my articles on another account from an article which was the only one from which I've ever really made any money from Amazon. If I was super paranoid, I'd think it was intentional that they'd snip the one article...

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...

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...
