I have read up on this and have asked questions etc but it isn't getting me anywhere. My google adsense is working fine but I'm having a lot of trouble with Amazon. I have been accepted but when I do the link checker it says: Fail: The link above was not tagged or was not a valid Amazon link.
What am I supposed to do? Can someone please help me?
I don't know what you mean by link checker? If you have been accepted into the program all you need to do is place the ID they have given you in your affiliate settings here:
and click activate.
Once that's done, go to a hub you want to put amazon products on >> go into edit mode >> add amazon capsule >> open amazon.com in a new window >> select a product you would like to put into your capsule >> copy the url at the top of the page >> add into the capsule >> click save.
Instead of the method above you can also add products to your amazon capsules via keywords if you prefer.
Remember that the info on amazon about adding links is for website owners. On Hubpages it works differently because we have the amazon capsule instead.
Hope that helps
Thankyou very much for your help. I have got the ID in my affiliate settings and it says set? I thought I had to do all stuff with links and all that and I didn't know what I was doing. Phew, glad you cleared that up for me

When I write a personal recommendation in the 'description section; on my Amazon capsule, it doesn't seem to be appearing as it has in the past. Will this appear, after publication?

My most recently snipped hub is about a specific product that is not readily available in stores. It used to have an amazon capsule, but that was deleted courtesy of HubPro a while back. Made no sense to me at the time because I've had multiple sales through amazon for that product, but I didn't...

Since I don't have an affiliate to Amazon or adsense why does the violation list that I have too many of these? What is the difference between the two?I thought that you could have one amazon link per 50 words. Some of my pages have over 1,000 words and only 4 amazon links, and it's...

I give! I've searched the first 3 or 4 pages of "Getting Help" Forum and I've read the entire Link's Capsule section in the Learning Center (http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/using-hubtool). That Hub, by the way, has a large number of Quick Links in it. How do you create a list of topics...

I like to add in-text links when I'm talking about certain products as I not only think they are some of the most effective, but also some of the most helpful. What I don't understand is why there is a limit of 2 in-text amazon links whereas we can make a slew of Amazon links using the Amazon...
