These New GMail changes hurt you (and me). Do this to fix it

Google has taken the GMail inbox and split it into a number of categories, including Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates and Forums. Not everybody is happy - some site owners, like Derek Halpern, are really unhappy. He writes, "In a lot of cases, GMail labels content-filled emails as 'Promotions.' That means, if you send content to your list (like I do), your content will be featured alongside spammy Promotional emails." I checked, and OLDaily is still being categorized as 'Primary', but this of course could change at the whim of Google. I imagine Google's major objective is to separate Twitter and Facebook messages from your regular email, which is what the new 'Social' catgeory does.
