I posted this as part of another thread a while ago but nothing ever came of it and I am a bit fed up with it now.
ALL of my Amazon capsules are half width - if I don't make them half width to put on the right of some text, they just stay half width on the left. It looks really bad. It doesn't matter if I choose specific products or keywords, they are still half width. Is this not happening to anyone else?
Here is a pic of one example:
That's the way Hubpages has set them up, unfortunately. For that reason, many people align them to the right, or put two capsules side by side.
Oh shame WryLilt, I thought they used to go all the way across Damn. Good idea of putting 2 side by side though I guess.
The only exception I've seen is on Wizzley, where you can size the Amazon picture as big as you want.
Another option is to put a photo of the item on the hub with the Amazon item directly underneath (see example on my Amazon hub linked on my profile.)
Ooooohhhh! You can size Amazon poducts as big as you'd like on Wizzley? I have not joined there as I really don't have time to mess with it right now, but that might tempt me to make an account, just so I can play with all their fun layout features.
I'm sure they used to go all the way across, too.
Well it looks like they have fixed this as the Amazon capsules are now full width again. However the words are tumbling into each other (ignoring some spaces I put in when I type) but I guess one step at a time!

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

I have a question for those of you who use Amazon in your hubs. Let's say that you are writing a hub with a list of different products. Do you think it's better to put all the amazon stuff at the bottom of the hub, all in one place, or to spread the ads throughout the hub, with one ad per product?...

Do Hubbers Still Use Amazon Capsules? Are the new rules changing the way you write?Just curious to know what others are doing. I think I will be using the Amazon Capsules very judiciously from now on, but I will have to step back and evaluate the effectiveness to decide how it fits in to my writing...

I have been thinking of leaving HubPages for a while now because of several reasons. With their latest ebay/amazon update I now have to reformat over 90 hubs (Some had not been published yet and I was waiting for Halloween). Rather than doing this I will use my time looking for a site and...
