What We’re Reading: The Top 15 Posts of 2015

Posted by Jen Ribble on

As 2015 draws to a close, it’s interesting to look back at the year and see what topics have been especially popular on the Return Path blog—and why.

Sometimes a popular post touches on the zeitgeist of the moment. Wearable technology was on everyone’s mind back in April, and our top post of the year dealt with pre-orders of the brand new Apple Watch. Other posts resonate with readers because they provide timely updates and insight. This was the case when Google announced a new search algorithm in March and when they made changes to Gmail’s postmaster tools in July. And of course phishing and spooofing have been important topics throughout 2015. Several posts on our most-read list reflect this, especially those related to DMARC and DKIM authentication.

Following are our Top 15 most popular blog posts of 2015:
