Hello, could someone please tell me the secret to including Amazon Products in your work without being overly promotional. Thanks in advance:-)
Yes. The item needs to be important to the article topic. For example, I might reference a quote by a certain author in one of their books... "As Suzi Snooks says in her book, "Finding Golf Balls in Hedges", blah blah blah. Then you would use the book title as anchor text for an inline link.
If the item just appears with no reference to it, the editors will snip it. So no point putting an Amazon capsule for a food mixer in a recipe article unless you've mentioned that you used it and why it is the one you recommend.
There's definitely a knack to it, but once you've cracked it, you'll be fine. Having said that, I don't include Amazon links in all my articles, only where it makes sense to do so.
I write mainly gardening articles so I might include a link to an Amazon product that I personally use (and talk about in the article) or if I have a favorite plant cultivar, after describing why I like that one better than the others, I will include a link to the seeds or bulbs on Amazon.
Yes, as mentioned it needs to be something you have actually used and recommend, and you need to talk about it in a way that makes this apparent.

I have products that are listed on Amazon. Are we allowed the link the article to a product we have listed on Amazon?

Every time I put an Amazon capsule on my articles it gets snipped. I write how it benefits people and how it relates to the article.

How to I talk about and put an Amazon product capsule in an article and not have it be snipped?

I have a high ranking page that is making a decent amount off of the Amazon products I feature there. I want to add an Amazon product that goes with the subject matter in another article but every time I try to add it, it gets snipped! The article is about how to express love to your mother and the...
