Thanks for posting your live results Justin. It's this kinda information that helps us all figure out what is going on with networks like that and whether we may be able to leverage them for our businesses.

That's some great tips for improving open rates Dewane. One you actually covered in another post is avoiding "flagged" words which will just wind posts into the spam bucket and the headline is no exception there. Lately one technique I've been experimenting with good results is to use a "dangling" sentence. That is one that starts to say something and trails in a ... (dot dot dot). This makes the person more inclined to open it as it feeds natural curiosity. (The key is not to give away the punch line in the first sentence, which is previewed in most browsers).
Good stuff!

Great list here Dewane, and all three points are highly valid. We can definitely take #3 however and build on it. By networking with others in our niche, with similar sized lists we can again "network through anothers network" by forming an ad-swap agreement. This is where 2 people each mail to their list ABOUT the promotional offer of the other. Ad swaps are powerful stuff. I have a couple posts on my blog about them but they serve as one of the foundation list building tools of the real IM niche pros. Great tips,

Thank you! I'm about 6 months into this same hiccup and while it occasionally gnaws at the back of my mind I generally dont worry about it too much. I did recently apply for reconsideration though. Its almost unfortunate that I had no perceivable misbehavior I could clean up. Mine started after a domain name change our our best guess was that all in the redirecting did not go as planned initially and the google gods frowned.

Hey girl just a quick note that the BlogEngage was giving me a 404 for some reason. Not sure if its on your side or theirs. Hard to say. Submit it and I'll vote from there :)

Yeah I'm on broadband, but a small provider, and while my address does not change daily/weekly, there are enough diruptions that it probably changes every month or two. I keep up with these things since I use them for analytics filtering anyways.

Thanks for the headsup on all this information Gail, appreciate it.

Nate, the problem here is that your spam que will tell you nothing. Once akismet has added an ip ban to a dns (ip) address, the visitor is able to visit and submit a comment fine - but it VANISHES before going to the spam que. Poof - gone - just like that! This is not the usual "false positives going to the spam box" problem that all of these plugins have (and isnt really that big of an issue).

For example if you visited my blog and had been ip banned by akismet - I would never ever see your comment and get to chose to approve it. It would just vanish. This is the complaint. It would make it look to you like I was a nitwit that was deleting your comments as trash.

Not a fun situation :(

Thats cute, lol. I came in hoping you had a code replacement for "what would seth godin do" or "wp greet box" (which both do similar but not identical things). Sadly this one is no use for me just yet until I get the PBY membership site up and rocking :)
