Am I allowed to do this?

    I haven't applied for an Amazon Affiliate account yet, but I plan to in the future. I do have some of their capsules in most of my Hubs.

    This is my most recent hub: http://cardia.hubpages.com/hub/how-to-i … ing-skills
    In this hub, for eg, I have "Check out these deals on sketchbooks!" over the capsule. Is that alright? I just signed up for Adsense, and they said that you should not have titles that would encourage people to click, and I was wondering if that was the same for Amazon.

    Should I take out those 'encouraging' titles then?

      Hmm.. Have checked it out and I don't see a problem with the wording on the Amazon caption for their ads at all.

    Hey Cardia,

    There's a difference between Google Adsense ads and Amazon product links. You cannot encourage people to click ad links, but you can encourage people to click Amazon product links.

    You've done nothing wrong in this hub.

    Your hub is fine. What should be avoided is using words like "click on these adds for more great products" and such like wording.

    Thanks everyone! I was just checking that I was doing something that is allowed.
