warning for gmail users

a lot of my comping emails such as winner notification, confirmation required etc are going into spam , even though I open these when I get them, it say they are being reported by other people as spam! who doesn't check whether they are winners on fill in a form & then not confirm entry?

    Could be marketing e-mails come from the same addresses so it's the address not the content that gets them spammed.

    I have a gmail address just for comping- though it's a replacement for my old one.

    At least once or twice a week a legitimate email will be put into the junk folder because of something in the title.

    I always check at least once a day for anything that shouldn't be in there.
