Withrepparttar Auto responder, there was a spam check program. I’d never used that before, but I ran a few sample newsletters throughrepparttar 134383 spam check. Boy, was I in for a shock. Every single one failed to passrepparttar 134384 test. My auto responder is probably like most others, it has a scoring system and once it passes 5 it flags up that your newsletter would triggerrepparttar 134385 spam filters.

What I found most disturbing was that it was my domain name of that was scoringrepparttar 134386 most, 4.3 points each time it was mentioned. And 2.3 points because my email address was

Even a single word newsletter with just scored 6.6. Way aboverepparttar 134387 threshold.

The cost to me, as a result of this has not just been to register a new domain name. I have had to completely redesign my website with my new name on it. Cancel and reopen a new account with my auto responder. And start again with my Reciprocal Links Exchange.

I have also had to start again from scratch withrepparttar 134388 Google Ranking. And I have a domain name that is next to useless to me or to anyone for that matter. I only use it now to direct traffic meant for to my new website.

So, that’s my story, and my warning to you.

Before you go and register a new domain name, run it through a spam check. If you are going to use your web site for marketingrepparttar 134389 last thing you want is forrepparttar 134390 spam filters to stop your email getting through.
