Hello, I posted this in the wrong forum... and was told to put it here! I'm a newbe (about 3 weeks)... and have created my Amazon Associates account and activated it on HubPages. But when I try to use an Amazon Capsule to pull in Amazon products through keywords, all I keep getting is the "No Products Found" message that others have reported. And the advice given by others here hasn't help-- Repeatedly clicking the "Review Amazon Results" link has no effect... and even trying to insert URLS for specific product-search results in the Capsule's URL fields doesn't work.
But when I search Amazon itself using the very same keywords and URLs, I get hundreds of products. So is the Amazon Capsule broken right now... or have I missed a critical step in the process? Again, I have an approved Amazon Associates account... and have activated my HubPages "Amazon Affiliate" link. So what else do I need to do?
I have more information about this problem! When I put only 1 keyword in the Amazon Capsule's "Keywords" field, it works. But when I try to use two or more keywords (separated by spaces or commas), the Capsule fails to find products. Is it broken? Or... and this may be the real question... can the keywords be exclusive (can they be for entirely different products, like shoes, purses, and books)... or must they ALL relate to the same type of product (such as books)?

What is up with this? I can't tell you the number of times I've had to redo, change or entirely delete my amazon capsules because of 'missing products' that aren't really missing. What is the issue here? I'm afraid to...

I posted a new Hub this morning which included an Amazon capsule with 8 or 9 related items in it. However when I went back to look it over after publishing, the Amazon capsule was not showing up, there's just a blank...

I have been updating my hubs, but almost all of the amazon capsules have been snipped (even if there is only one on the hub and it is directly relating to the article). I see that HP is limiting them, but is there...

I went to add another product to an existing hub created last month, and all products disappeared, leaving the no products label. I took off the third product and the other two showed again. I added it, and all three...
