I have been trying to write a hub to detail my self publishing experience so far and to help promote the short story I put on Amazon's KDP Select program, but the HP cap can't find the product. I've tried to add it by the asin, B006QF2AR4, as well as by typing out the name of the story and my author name to do a search based add. Nothing comes up in either case. Still, it's out there on Amazon and available for download.
Now, here's a twist. As a part of the KDP Select program, the story is 99 cents or free if you are a Prime member. Could that designation be causing problems? I've added free items listed on Amazon to hubs before, like the KDP publishing guide, without a problem... so I'm not sure that's it.
I'm not trying to promote in this forum thread, thus no links... I could really use some help here. Anyone have any insight into what might be going on? The story has been up a few weeks now, is there a minimum age before HP will recognize an item in the store?
Thanks in advance to any who take the time to read this.
The only thing I can say is that I've had the same trouble with products in the past, and it was always with products whose ASIN started with "B00". I'm assuming there must be something about that ASIN prefix which the capsule doesn't like!
The only other thing I can suggest is to create an image capsule, put the link to your book in the Source URL and put "buy now on Amazon" in the caption.

After reading every post, every article, etc... on the subject matter I thought I'd start a post with arguments against Amazon being the source of the free fall in traffic that many of us experienced last week as I don't believe it is the problem. (I can't say 100% for sure).1.) Many hubbers which...

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 space where it should be.When I went into "edit" mode I can see the...

I've seen a couple of hubs where there is a link to an Amazon search results page, and the hubbers affiliate code is in the URL so they will get credit for the sale, even though it is not through an Amazon capsule.Is anyone willing to tell me how to do it? One I saw actually looks like the hubber...

I was just wondering if anyone ever leaves back links to their profile page on HP. I've really not done it myself, but I can see how leaving back links in hopes of building a higher PR profile page might help pagerank to filter down into individual hubs. But I don't want to do it if it...

Hi,I have been in hubpages for less than a week, and I have been munching information in help pages and guides ever since. I have made a few hubs, all about medicine. Basically, my problem revolves around references. I'm itching to ask how you guys put in the reference section at the bottom of the...

Last week in a forum about music, some of us touched on the possibility of reciprocal linking to each others' Hubs. I promised to post (in the same forum) a list of articles that I have already linked to; but before doing that, I wanted to be sure it is not against TOS. There would be...
