I am having a problem with editing my sales hubs. I was told they would be unpublished if not edited due to the amount of items but when it compliments the Hub I dont see why they need to be changed. --After all it is a "sales" hub.? What is the max Amazon capsules allowed per the new TOS? I understand 50 words per capsule- but for most of the Hubs in question they have well over the amount of words???!
It is 50 words per product, not per capsule. In addition, if keywords are used in an amazon capsule and the capsule can show more products than it does (maybe it can't find enough to fill it) then the unused product spaces count as products as well. Example: the capsule is set to show 4 products, but the keyword search used only comes up with 2, which it shows. The capsule will be counted as having 4 products as it could show the other missing two at any time.
If you are advertising 13 different products in 2 capsules, you will need to have a word count of at least 650 words. 13X50=650.
This is the second time I've noticed someone talking about using keywords versus using the links, to be honest, there is NO difference.
It depends on how many you have the capsule set to for number of products.
From this thread: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/69780
Question: Just to clarify, is this only if you're using keywords? I don't normally use them. I choose specific products to show. But the default when you open an Amazon capsule is 3 items to display.
So if I insert an Amazon capsule, select one specific product but fail to change the default from 3 to 1, it will count as three products?
Answer, from Paul Deeds: No, if you choose specific products, it will only count the number if asins you've entered.
Looks to me like "empty spots" are only counted if keyword search is used, whereas if specific asins are entered then those asins are counted but not empty spots. As it was explained, keyword search could result in empty spots being filled at any time, whereas if specific products are chose then empty spots will stay empty.
I think it would be better said that you should 50 per product.
If you have 10 capsules and each capsule is set to 8 products, then you need lots of words.
The capsule if set to 1 product, then it requires 50 words.
If the capsule is set to 2 products, then it requires 100 words.
So on and so forth.
You may want to browse through the forums....this has been discussed in depth. You should be able to find some really useful and thorough information that can help you out. Good luck!

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...

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?
