I went to Amazon, selected "Omakase" = leaving product selection to them, and they gave me a HTML code to insert in my "website/template".
I tried to insert that in a text capsule, but that doesn't work. Where should it be inserted?
Next I discovered the Amazon capsule, but that requests listing of keywords and product area. The hub is about Michelangelo, so I put in:
Product area: Books
Keywords: Michelangelo, Sistine, Fresco, Julius II
And got "No Amazon products found"
Sometimes you do need to fiddle with the keywords. Try just one painter - or "painters" "renaissance art" etc.
But Michelangelo, though he was primarily a sculptor, is certainly one of the best-known painters of all times! It's as if Amazon told me they have no books on Picasso.
You may need to only put in Michelangelo. Then maybe put in another capsule further down for each of the other artists you mentioned. Try not to confuse the amazon capsule with too many keywords.
I generally let amazon choose its own products as it will bring up popular, best sellers and of course always show items that are still in stock - so I don't need to keep rechecking my amazon promotions are relevant.
It's much better to choose individual products rather than leave it to keywords IMHO. In the amazon capsule if you click "clear out and start over" you can see that you can choose individal products. To do this open a new window, get to amazon.com, find the products you want and copy and paste the page urls into the capsule.
I cannot believe that this is the intention, because they would know better than anybody what books about Michelangelo are now being read and what books on fresco art are most in demand. That kind of knowledge is useful and is their specialty, not mine.
You can't use those codes on HubPages, that's only if you have your own website.
The search looks for ALL the words you enter in the NAME of the product. I doubt there's a book with all those words in the title?
As Susana said, it's much better to go to Amazon (not the affiliate section, just the ordinary site), find the exact products you want, then copy and paste the ISBN or ASIN numbers into the capsule.
I believe that the Omakase html text is for a banner ad which you cannot put into Hubs. You can only use the Amazon Capsules in a hub.
Try just typing 'one' keyword into the space and see what you get!
You may use amazon capsule to insert amazon links into your hub. It is very user friendly and can insert relevant links by using keywords.

I don't know what is going on with my articles lately, but every time they edit them, my amazon capsules are removed. Once they remove the amazon products, they publish it and feature it. I don't understand why this is happening to my articles. If they are going to remove the amazon capsules, then...

This will probably get me hunted down and shot, but here goes…When I first started here, I plastered Amazon capsules all over the place; each and every one of them 8 products long. And then two more 8-mile long ones tacked side-by-side after comments.This lasted for about my first newbie month....

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

Okay, so I've been having this problem for a while now. I WAS able to conquer the issue by using IE, but alas... that avenue is no longer viable either. I'm now having problems in Firefox.Here's the story about the problem... If I manually insert the products ASIN, it says...
