Fixing your DNS's SPF-records to avoid your email being marked as spam

Monday, October 11, 2021

If your nurture or campaign emails are getting marked as Spam, there might be a problem with your company's DNS-server.

Many spam filters use Sender Policy Framework or SPF as one check in the process of deciding if your mail is spam or not. When receiving your mail, they compare IP address of the sending mail server to those listed in your DNS. If your DNS has a SPF-record and Loyalistic is not listed there, your mail is likely to be marked as Spam. And in cases where you don't have a SPF and your mail is marked as spam, adding SPF record might solve the problem.

You can check whether your domain has a SPF-record with this tool. Just type your domainname e.g. to the first field and click "Get SPF-record".

Your SPF record is published as TXT record type, although some still use the now deprecated SPF-record type.

If you have a SPF record you need to add within that record.

Contact your DNS admin or service provider and ask to add "" (without quotation marks) to your SPF record.

If your DNS does NOT yet have SPF record, adding one may be a good idea. But before you rush to do it, remember to survey and include all your mail servers and other services that send email with your domain name.

Warning: Do not exceed 10 DNS lookups with your SPF-record!

Integrating blog to your website

Monday, October 11, 2021

When your blog is ready to launch, you may want to integrate it with your website. Here is how to do it.

Adding link to blog from your site's navigation

Add link to your site's navigation so website visitors (and Google) can find it.

Check from your webmaster or web agency who build the site whether you can modify navigation yourself or whether they should do it. You are basically just adding a link, however navigation is often coded so that it might break if you go and add a link yourself.

The right place is often on top or main navigation.

However if your website is highly conversion optimized, you may prefer to link from your footer instead.

Before you add link, check that you have set your blog's domain and path the way you want them. By default, your blog is hosted at <yourdomain> and you may prefer to have it on your custom domain, and you may want to change /blog/ part to e.g. /posts/ or /articles/ if you host your blog at let say to avoid repeating word blog on the full URL. You can edit these at Settings > Custom Domain and URLs.

When you are adding the link or sending it to your webmaster, check that it works and that it ends to /, e.g.

When you add the link, visitors and Google starts to find your blog.

Now it may take quite some time before Google has indexed it, so you may speed up the process by submitting blog's URL to Google. You can do it here:

Adding newest posts feed to your website

If you like to show your latest blog posts on your site's front page perhaps, this is how to do it.

Open your blog at Loyalistic (admin side, not public). You'll find blog settings menu (cog icon) in between View Post and Create New Post buttons on the right. Select Get Feed Script.

Install this script to your website where you want to show your latest posts. This widget uses your site's styling so if it does not look like you want, you can tune it with your site's CSS. If you don't speak CSS, leave it to your webmaster or agency to style it. Otherwise you easily break your site.

Check Additional Settings if you need a bit more control.
