    Newbie here.  I have just written my first hub.  Before I continue, I want to put ads in place.  I started with Amazon.  I got the affiliate code and it looks to me that it is in place properly.  I got the affiliate code, put it in place.  It says it is active.  Yet I have visited my hub several times and I don't see any Amazon ads in there.  Where is it and how is this supposed to make me money?

      You have to add Amazon Modules to your hub manually - they should be relevant to the Hub too, otherwise your hub may be un-published.

        Thanks SimeyC.   I guess I need to do more reading and pondering.  I will now look into how to do add Amazon Module manually.  Any hints?   Where do I read the rules on ad relevance?

    The Learning Center is at the foot of this page has lots of helpful topics and videos and the other one that might be useful is FAQ - help button at the top.

    I think a good way to start is buy adding Amazon to any products that really do relate directly to the hub, like the drill that works best to make the project, or a book you know of that will give more in depth info on the issue.  Then add that near the bottom of the hub,  But that is just one approach.

    Thanks 2uesday.  I have not seen that.  All the topics are categorized.   I see the topics that I already read through.  I am almost there I think, but I see many topics to read through to find my answer.
    Perhaps, it is a good thing.

    The Selecting of Amazon products can be done in two ways (both methods use the same Amazon capsule but in a slightly different way).

    1/ One way - you use a keyword for the products you wish to feature.

    2/ The other way you add a product you have found on the site
        by using  its ASIN code or the model/item number. Scroll down the page
        with  the item on to find its ASIN code.

    The down side of using the easier keyword method of adding Amazon products is that you can end up with products not as relevant as you would want.

    It is easy to add Amazon products than it sounds from my explanation, but once you get the first one done you will be fine. Like most things smile
