Title: Spam words That Should Be Eliminated.

This post is an excellent post for the people who are involved in the business of sending promotional emails to a large number of people. The list of spam words which are provided in the post are neatly arranged and these are the words which are most commonly used in the promotional emails. I’ve sent promotional emails to many people. Some complain that they have not got my email. This problem can be eliminated to some extent by avoiding the use of these words. This will help to increase the exposure of the promotional email to large number of people without any hurdles and difficulties.

My spam folder overflows each day and it’s true, maximum mails are promotional mails for websites and products. However, I think it’s unfortunate that the mails from people promoting the right products and services are labelled spam too because they contain a high density of the words mentioned above. I mean an authorized and genuine mail may also suffer due to this.

Thankyou for that insight on spam words. Never knew there were such filters that could restrict even important or potentially lucrative emails from coming through to one’s mailbox. Will save this to my drafts and use my creativity instead like you said.

I have been receiving a lot of spam mails and true to your words, these are the characters that end up in that mail. I can also use this information as seeing these key words in my mailbox or subject area of the mail will automatically be sent to the trash because I have no time for spam mail. Thank you!
