Can Google detect if I'm sending mass emails?

9 replies
Using Gmail, I recently reached out to 30+ different end users trying to sell a domain name. I used the same copy-paste template for each one. Just wondering- can Google pick up on this? Will they send my email messages straight to their spambox?

What are best practices for emailing multiple end users without hitting their spambox?

    If you are using an autoresponder one tip is to have the email address that is tied to your AR campaign NOT be a free email such as gmail or yahoo. It should be a domain email address such as admin(@)yourdomain.com

    If you are just sending out the emails from your own gmail account I would guess that Google can tell. They seem to know everything lately!

    GMail will place messages that are multiple and identical into its spam folder, especially if others manually place them there. So if you're only sending a little over 30 emails, take the time to make each of them different from one another. That might help.

    If I imported my email list into a tool like Aweber, ConstantContact, VerticalResponse, etc, and used one of these tools to send out the same identical emails instead- would that work?

    GoldPro,

    Gmail is not the service to use unless you mail very infrequently. Besides, a gmail address is not very "business professional."

    If you want to email using your own hosting, I would look into Group Mail. It's a paid product, but it works well. I tried it before aWeber and I never had a complaint and the deliverability is good (which is important).

    Maybe an even better choice is an emailing service like SendGrid. You can mail out large amounts of monthly email for a small price. They take deliverability very seriously and handle all of the details. There are many similar services like SendGrid.

    If you try to mail a lot of business email from typical personal email hosting accounts, you will probably run into trouble with the hosting service provider.

    The best to you,

    Steve

    if you just sent 30 emails to individuals who might have interest in your domain name from your personal gmail account, there is almost no chance of gmail filtering those as spam.

    first, thats not enough to trigger much of anything. second, when you go into gmail and send messages 1-1, that is huge indication it is NOT spam.

    now if you used BCC stuff or something like that and none of these people were in your contacts before the email, that would be different.

    but 1-1 emails from a gmail account are considered pretty low risk unless there is a lot of other stuff going on.

    For your information, the situation is not on Google but on your email rating.


    There's a tool called SPAM Assassin, it based on your email rating to decided if your email to send to user's spam box.


    Words such as, Paypal, Credit Card, prohibit words are more likely to fall into spam box.

    Gold Pro, I believe these 'template' types of emails will end up going into the SPAM Folders with Gmail.

    I get a lot of these types of emails that I don't read everyday and I just delete them.

    With regards to Aweber, they will only allow you to upload these email addresses if you can prove to them that you generated these leads yourself (and will even ask you for the webpage that they came in from).

    In the end, you should only be emailing offers to people who have asked you for more information.

      Are there any tools that don't ask where the leads were generated from?

      I acquired a list of email addresses a long time, but the landing page from which they were gathered is now removed.

    Instead of sending it through your Gmail account you should use services like Verticle response, constant contact, aweber etc. They provide a decent number of free emails every month.
