MailChimp Newsletter: avoiding the 2-step sign up

MailChimp has set up a 2-step sign up as default:


First, users have to enter their emails in the newsletter sign up.
Then, they receive and email to confirm their subscription.

This is the standard set up, but we have now added an option if you want a direct sign up that bypasses that double step, it's as simple as checking a box.

1) Go to the Newsletter link on the hamburger menu.

2) The first checkbox you'll see is the one you'll want to check: "Bypass confirmation email and subscribe users directly."

An Important Note on Site Quality From Google’s Search Expert

Do you ever wonder if a few typos can impact your site’s search performance? According to Google’s Search Advocate John Mueller, it takes more than just a few grammatical missteps for Google’s crawler to determine your site’s quality.

During a New Year’s Eve Office Hours hangout, Mueller said that if certain portions of a website are deemed low quality, it can negatively impact the site’s search ranking overall. A good example of this is a site that has different language versions within the same domain. If the site has a French-language version that is made up of quality content, but the English translation isn’t up to the same standard, the ranking of the French version of the site could be negatively impacted.
