I am confused...
With Amazon Assoc (and even Adsense), there are options to drive traffic to your hubs, but I'm confused how to use them.
When they give you all of the code, they say, "copy and paste this to ..." and that's where I'm lost.
Where do we paste the code after we copy it? Is that even possible here on HP? Or are we limited to the use of simply putting a check mark in the various boxes when we start a new hub?
When you loging to amazon associates site you'll get affiliate ID in the left hand column. Use that id to paste it in hubpages affiliate settings. Other than this there is no copy paste to do.
When you write your hubs all you have to do is position your amazon capsule and add the keyword or choose products to display.There is no need for any copy pasting any code in hub or in capsule.
Thats right. The code is for use on ordinary websites or blogs. On Hubpages the Amazon capsule is all you need.
lynda, you open up 'my account' at top of page and click on 'affiliates' you will see the boxes for both google and amazon.
click edit and enter your code exactly as it looks, or it won't work. then click o.k.
Thanks everyone. Rik, actually, was spot on with his/her answer.

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...
