I've seen a few mentions of "sales hubs" around the forum. I can't quite glean from the context if a sales hub is 1) A Hub written specifically around a certain product with Amazon capsules added, or 2) Any Hub with an Amazon capsule added.
I guess I'm asking how you would define a sales Hub, and what you would say are the key components.
A sales hub is characterized by that it is intended primarily to promote a product. A book review with an Amazon capsule would not necessarily be a sales hub, since the sales element is often secondary.
Exactly, which is why I wrote "not necessarily" and "often."
Granted, but the sun is shining here and it brings out the silliness in me.
The sun is shining in the UK?? Quick grab a camera!
It's raining here in Spain
Mind you, not as much as it was yesterday when it left me entirely speechless (almost).
No the sun is out and it is 11 degrees. But don't worry it is forecast to rain all weekend! Ironically the SE of England is officially in drought as we have had a very dry winter
Drought in winter - must be a first!
I think the Spanish authorities are over the moon at the rain today because there is a nation-wide water shortage here too (unsurprisingly).
Sorry to keep back on topic, sales hubs are, as has been said, written to promote a product or range of products.
I once sold a $1400 greenhouse just by extolling the benefits of having one.
Just once, mind. Must have been a fluke sale!
I'm glad we got the European weather report out of this question. Greg

I understand the rationale for removing amazon capsules. I'm very careful not to include amazon capsules unless they are 100% relevant, and I can provide a personal opinion. I rarely do more than one per hub.HP is not only snipping amazon capsules on hubs for niche sites, but also just to have a...

Hi MickiIf you've noticed I've not written any hubs recently, I'm on my vacations from University and thought of doing a 30 hubs in 30 days challenge. Rather, I've gone for a 30 Wizzley articles in 30 days - for a good reason: Their amazon Capsules are way better formatted - users feel like...

My Amazon sales are dead in the water. My Amazon Caps are discrete - I have added only when directly related to a product.I am not getting much traffic at the mo, so I guess this is an issue. I posted around 60 Hubs in Dec 2014, so it should be these have not been picked up by Google as organic...

Janderson just submitted some great suggestions on this thread:http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/126313#post2666393and I think this one deserves a suggestion post on its own.We're always being told to be discriminating with our Amazon capsules - less is more, they must be directly related, etc...
