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!
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.
Good job WE. I would if I could but I already have about six people I regularly correspond with in regards to the inner workings of HP.
Glad to help. It is very kind of you to be helping several people, already.
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
P.S. I'm off to bed now. The help forum is all yours!
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.
I'm too busy to be a mentor right now.
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.

When I first came here from Squidoo I was so wishing there was a “someone” I could communicate with who would answer my questions, or tell me where I could get the information I needed. I did use the forums and received answers that helped me, but it would have been so nice to have...

Can I just clarify how the Amazon flag works?When I use Amazon, I often use several capsules with only one product per capsule. I do that, because I want the product to align with the relevant text.I noticed the warning says something about calculating how many products COULD be displayed in...

In our most recent product review lenses, the Amazon product was the featured intro. photo. Can we continue to use those Amazon product images as our introduction photo or do we need to change them?

Hello Hubbers! I'm fairly new to HubPages, I've been here about a week now and love the community so far! Anyway, I was thinking, since we all have the same goal; to make money, get readers and help people, I thought I would make a topic for us all to discuss the best places to post our HubPages...

I'm kinda pissed and extremely dismayed. I've been with Hubpages and Amazon Associates for 5 years now and haven't made a dime with Amazon the entire time. I've reached out for help numerous times and not a single person told me that I have to get my Amazon links from the Amazon Associates website...
