Email overload? Try Priority Inbox

This is very good functionality. Especially if you get hundreds of emails a day. Due to my public blog and members site I get lots of emails. While some are from readers who need help on particular issues, many of the emails are non priority emails. Many are nuisance emails. All the emails that are about method, or software help, or Telechart scan help, or are asking for direction about how to learn to trade, or overcome a slump, or other trading related issues I answer promptly.

On daily basis I get request for backlinks. These are nuisance requests. The way to get good links to your blog is not to beg for them, but offer something worthwhile. If you have compelling content and if you offer value to your reader, they will come and they will tell others and your blog will grow. I can tell you that from my personal experience of running this blog. Without any active efforts at playing the SEO optimization game or asking for backlinks or aggressively promoting my blog and site on social media, I have over 1200 members now. The best form of publicity is word of mouth. If readers find valuable information, they will link to you, they will keep coming back, they will recommend your site to others. At least that is my personal belief.

The other types of emails I get are from publishers asking for my address to send me books for review in hope of getting a favorable review for their book. I know lot of bloggers who do this , I do not do this. All books I review, I buy with my own money. I only recommend books I genuinely like and find useful. As regular readers know, there are very few books I recommend as a buy.

The other nuisance emails I get are from PR agencies who send out press releases to bloggers in the hope that bloggers will republish them. To me that is complete moronic PR strategy. This is a big nuisance. Some days I get hundreds of emails from these PR morons. Most of these people just blast put press releases without looking at your site content or your focus areas. Almost every day I get emails saying "I invite you to interview XXX XXXXX, founder of Shitty Corporation about how to buy gold. You can reach me at xxx-xxx-xxxx and by e-mail at pr@shittypromotions.com. I hope to hear from you!

Hopefully this new functionality by gmail would help prioritize these kind of incoming messages.

Email overload? Try Priority Inbox: "(Cross-posted from the Gmail Blog)

People tell us all that time that they’re getting more and more mail and often feel overwhelmed by it all. We know what you mean—here at Google we run on email. Our inboxes are slammed with hundreds, sometimes thousands of messages a day—mail from colleagues, from lists, about appointments and automated mail that’s often not important. It’s time-consuming to figure out what needs to be read and what needs a reply. Today, we’re happy to introduce Priority Inbox (in beta)—an experimental new way of taking on information overload in Gmail.

Gmail has always been pretty good at filtering junk mail into the “spam” folder. But today, in addition to spam, people get a lot of mail that isn't outright junk but isn't very important—bologna, or “bacn.” So we've evolved Gmail's filter to address this problem and extended it to not only classify outright spam, but also to help users separate this 'bologna' from the important stuff. In a way, Priority Inbox is like your personal assistant, helping you focus on the messages that matter without requiring you to set up complex rules.



Priority Inbox splits your inbox into three sections: “Important and unread,” “Starred” and “Everything else”:



As messages come in, Gmail automatically flags some of them as important. Gmail uses a variety of signals to predict which messages are important, including the people you email most (if you email Bob a lot, a message from Bob is probably important) and which messages you open and reply to (these are likely more important than the ones you skip over). And as you use Gmail, it will get better at categorizing messages for you. You can help it get better by clicking the or buttons at the top of the inbox to correctly mark a conversation as important or not important. (You can even set up filters to always mark certain things important or unimportant, or rearrange and customize the three inbox sections.)

After lots of internal testing here at Google, as well as with Gmail and Google Apps users at home and at work, we’re ready for more people to try it out. Priority Inbox will be rolling out to all Gmail users, including those of you who use Google Apps, over the next week or so. Once you see the 'New! Priority Inbox' link in the top right corner of your Gmail account (or the new Priority Inbox tab in Gmail Settings), take a look.

Why can't we just have Folders already? Folders (in combination with Filters) solve the same problem as "Priorities" and should be the central organization of email instead of "Labels".

It's good to know your policy on that since I just sent you a potential guest post.

Because I have recommended you on my site and discussed some of your strategies, I get people coming to my site asking for for "stockbee reviews" and "review of stockbee ibd" and the like. I try and accomodate them with the information they are looking for as well as "proof" that it works as advertised to validate what so many of us already know so they will in turn come over here and read what you provide and most likely sign up for your membership.

I wholeheartedly endorse your strategies even though I never met you, or really talked with you or receive any benefit in return says alot about your content. It is compelling content that's for sure.
