  • What Email Marketers Are Saying About Gmail’s Image Serving Change Google caused quite a stir Thursday with the news that it’s serving images in Gmail from its own servers, rather than from the sender’s servers.

Yep, New Plugin Makes It Possible Don’t be surprised if Marketing Land’s coverage of next year’s Google I/O conference, or perhaps coverage of our upcoming SMX West conference, involves some live blogging … from Google Glass. Yep. There’s a new WordPress plugin that makes it possible to shoot photos and video on Google Glass and publish them almost immediately to a […]
  • Google: Gmail Image Change May Improve Open Rate Data, But Will Strip Other User Data With more information coming in this afternoon, it appears that Google’s image serving change in Gmail is a mixed bag (at best) for marketers.
