Reports coming in that how members of your newsletter act on your emails in Gmail could allegedly have a direct impact on your SERPs!
Early April was the second round of Panda algorithm changes. With some additional digging, I got a tip from someone at Google who indicated Google was penalizing JakeLudington.com with some new measurements that penalize email behaviors for domains. In talking with a number of other online publishers who were also hit with a stiff penalty, including LockerGnome, it appears that one common theme is that we all have email newsletters.
The only real solution here is to stop sending to people in Gmail lists ASAP IMO.
Clean it up later, take no chances.
