    I have an Ebay ads program active a month ago but there are no Ebay products ad in my hubs from the beginning of the activation of the ad program. Today, I have noticed some Ebay products add in one of the hubber's hub. Why don't I have such ads though it is showing that Ebay program is active?

    Have I done any mistake in activating the program?

    What is the procedure?

    Kindly help me to understand the reason. Thanks in advance.

      You can include Ebay ads in a hub by using the Ebay capsules. They won't appear automatically.

      Using Ebay capsules is like your Amazon capsules... you need to use keywords to set up the ads.. as Will says they do not appear automatically like Google ads..

    Hello sofs and Will Apse,

    Thanks for clearing my doubt.

    First of all, I did not know that I have to add the Ebay capsule. One more thing is how to add keywords and which keywords that which are used in the tag? 

    Secondly, as of now I have 24 hubs so may I add this capsule in all the hubs?

    Lastly, where to add the capsule in the hub?

    Kindly answer my questions it will be quite helpful for me. Thanks in advance.

      Hello there.

      1. Yes, use eBay capsules. Play around with all the capsules is my advise.
      2. Keywords. use the one related. Like if I am writing for finance, I go for finance keywords. Of course, keywords can be longer. Think out of the box smile
      3. Yes you can add eBay and Amazon to all. Just make sure you don't put too many as it will be flagged.
      4. You can basically add anywhere. In between text capsules, picture capsules etc.

      This is what I can show you starting from top to bottom for example.
      Text capsule
      Picture capsule
      Text capsule
      eBay capsule
      text capsule
      Amaxon capsule
      Link/rss capsule

      You see, there are a few text capsules. Dividing your articles into different parts and put each into different capsules.

      I hope you understand what I am trying to say. Good luck!

      This is done the exact same way you work with amazon capsules... find keywords for products related to the hubs. You can add them in all of you hubs as you please.
      The placement is something you need to work with, until your layout looks attractive and not too cluttered or ugly..
      Remember that you can have one product for every fifty words ..more than that you could have your hubs un published..
      You need to follow what works  for you in terms of layout.. but avoid the rss or link capsule if you can or keep it highly relevant.

    Thanks nicregi.

    It is very clear now because you have answered all the questions in a very clear cut manner but still I have one small doubt left. The point is:

    You mentioned about 'flagging off if I use too many' but what? If I use 2/3 keywords, will it be fine?
    How the product adds will appear in the hubs, am I to select the adds?
