I have received the following response from Amazon. I have created two hubs here. Do I have a web site, and what URL do I need to give Amazon to meet their needs? Obviously, my knowledge about this computer jargon would fit in a thimble!
"Thank you for taking the time to submit your application.
Unfortunately, we will not be able to accept your application. Upon
review, I noticed that you supplied the popular site hubpages.com as
your registered URL.
"We need the complete and valid URL for the web site where you intend
to post links to Amazon.com before we can process an application.
"If you have your own web site, please resubmit your application and
remember to include the URL for your web site."
Did you give them a specific URL? ie: http://hubpages.com/hub/trolleys or did you just put http://hubpages.com?
I've had an Amazon Associate account since the late 90's so I can't remember the process myself.
But I would suggest if Amazon does accept a full hubpage url as a valid page/site that you create a detailed hub with plenty of content, LOTS of content, on a subject that can be easily coupled with complementary products, be it books or other, from their available range.
Thanks, darkside. I just gave them hubpages.com I'll resubmit my application with the one you suggest.
