Amazon Help & Mentor?

  1. Kelly347 profile image58
    Kelly347posted 7 years ago

    Hi there,

    I have been trying to post a link on my 1st Hub through Amazon.  I am an accepted affiliate & have put my Amazon ID into my account.  However, unlike my Adsense account, which says "active", the Amazon listing only says "set".  Is that the problem?  I have picked my product from Amazon Affiliates and highlighted the html as told.  When I paste the html into the Amazon cell, it just says "no product found".  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, if anyone would like to be my mentor in cyber world for a week or two I would greatly appreciate it.   I am a hard worker and take constructive criticism very well.  I would enjoy help learning the ropes here on Hubpages as I have many ideas for articles I would like to get working on once I can work these cyber kinks out.  Also, I have an online store through Etsy and a supporting blog that I would love critique/suggestions for making them more successful. 

    Thank you for taking the time to read this!

    ~Kelly

      It should say set - that is correct.

      Have you tried a different product?

      Once you've added the Amazon capsule, just copy and paste the URL of the item you want to display; or simply choose keywords and relevant items matching those keywords will be displayed.

      I don't have the time for mentoring, but I can answer specific questions if you send me a message.

      Also, you can post hubs in the extreme hub makeover forum if you wish to get some good feedback.

            Well I have this bad habit of not being able to say no....

            I'm far too nice. And they ask just one question on the forums that I answer, then they're so happy with my answer they email me with one more question, then a more complicated one and and and.....

            I'm too nice sad

            P.S. I'm off to bed now. The help forum is all yours! tongue

              It would seem that maybe you are, as stated on your profile page.

              'Be true to yourself' is the only advice I am able to offer - whatever that may entail...

              P.S. Thank you, take care!

      When opening a thread, especially one as demanding of fellow hubbers' attention as this, it is not a bad idea for the Original Poster to come back in a timely manner and respond to the comments and offers of assistance made.

      I have not received a reply to my email either, and so will not proceed.

        Agreed - since it appears that the OP has been active since the post.

    I'm too busy to be a mentor right now. smile

    However, "set" means you are indeed in business as far as amazon is concerned.

    I find that too - sometimes the products won't link on Hubpages - sometimes you can look in the URL and copy the actual product number - begins just after 'product' in the URL and try adding that  - Hubpages essentially only uses that anyway!

    The other thing to do is to use the Choose Keywords option rather than linking direct products...

    Instead of starting a new Amazon thread, I'll ask and hopefully someone will answer.

    Can we post more than one Amazon capsule? 
    I'm new here, but not to writing online. I read an article this morning that had three of them.  It looked just fine and was all related, but I was surprised by the number.

    I don't need mentoring, just an answer. smile

      You can use as many Amazon capsules as you wish, and customize the amount of items appearing in each of them.
