      Just a concern to watch out for… in my case Google Web Console flagged my pages as not mobile friendly specifically because of the Native Shopping Ads widget from Amazon Associates: Hopefully it gets fixed soon as I really do love the ads it produces.

        Hi. I am not seeing the ads when I look at your URL. I recommend copying the HTML code from Amazon again. There could be a missing digit.
