What is domain reputation?
Domain reputation is the overall health of your domain. Think of domain reputation as your credit score. If you have a good credit score, the banks see you as a valuable customer. Similarly, if you have a good domain reputation, it will signal to ISPs that your emails are relevant and valuable.
You can measure domain health with tools like Google Postmaster, which tracks data on your domain health, spam reports, etc.
How to set up Google Postmaster?
You need a Google account to proceed. If you don’t have one, start by creating an account. Visit postmaster.google.com and log in with your Gmail account.
Enter your authentication domain name in the popup that appears next.
Google Postmaster will generate a TXT record. Copy it and add it to your DNS configuration of the entered domain. You can ask your tech team for help if you don't have access to the domain records.
You can add a CNAME record as an alternate option if you’re having trouble with the TXT record.
You’ve to verify the ownership after you’re done adding the record. You can do this by clicking “Verify” in the popup, which will show you a success message
After verification, wait until Postmaster collects the required data.
You can explore the tools it offers and measure your email campaigns.
