Hubbers, before you hit 'publish', whatdo you check?
What are the final checks you gothr ough before publishing a hub? I try to do the following: Read through for sense / clarity - Spelling & Grammar check - Ensure good word count - Use of multiple capsules - Link to related hubs - Link to good internet resources - Include relevant Amazon products. Anything else?
Step away from all that you listed for a second....just look at the page with your eyes, and not your English....is the page attractive to the eye and the eye alone? If not, then the text won't work so well....
Some of what you mentioned is done in my word processor before even beginning to paste it into HubPages. Then there are several things I do to the empty capsule layouts etc. that are easier to do before pasting them chock full of text, etc. But you asked about final checks, so here is that part of my list.
1. Give the Comments capsule a subheading and set the parameters. Latest first when I expect them to interact mainly with me; earliest first when reading through the comments is part of the hub experience.
2. When pasting text into each text capsule, insert my referral tracker after hubpages.com/ in each link.
3. When filling each non-text capsule, drag it to a tentative layout position using the Reorder tab (if still within view--pasting text capsules bottom up helps keep the Reorder tab in view).
4. Proofread, even if done previously in the word processor. Watch for agreement between capsule layout and locative references.
5. Consider captions & titles for non-text capsules.
6. Are photos properly attributed?
7. If the hub is long enough or complicated enough to have a TOC, use anchor text to create dynamic links.
8. Last step: Is the Summary the best I can do? Check the Settings. Have I included something that should make this non-commercial?
9. Immediately after publishing, rearrange hub order within the assigned Group.
Howard, some great advice here including a fair bit I hadn't considered - thanks so much for the in depth response.
Pardon me, what do you mean by" insert my referral tracker after hubpages.com/ in each link."???
@peachpurple: This is a link to the referral program, and it might show that I added my tracker. Go there to learn about it.

1. I check the formatting (using the preview) to make sure everything looks lined up properly with the ad.
2. Check that all the photos are properly attributed.
3. Make sure I have added all the capsules I want. I personally don't want to see a bunch of only text, so I scroll down, and when I see that there is a space where I can't see any extras, I will either more around, or add, photos or other capsules.
4. I check for nits and typos and make sure what I said was understandable and accurate.
5. I try if I have written other related articles that I can link to some of the words in the current article.
6. I try to grade my writing skills, using this hub:

7. I make sure that the new article is properly grouped.
I usually check my spellings, make sure that amazon capsule, photos and polls are all in. Most importantly is the word count. It has to be 800 words or more.

The biggest issue I have with all capsules having to be full width is that there now seems to be no provision for sidebar content. I've had to eliminate several sidebar text capsules because although they have...

I was totally dismayed to learn that Ad-Blocking software is used by 41% of people. (The statistic appeared in "The Week" magazine.) That reduces impressions. We get 60% of views, but only 59% of those views...

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...
