Why gmail categorized a message as important

About 80% of the messages I receive get marked “important”. This is ridiculous. For example I have MightySMS on my phone which automatically emails me all text messages and puts them in a label called “SMS”. Even though they are under this label they appear in “important”. How do I change the entire rule for important? I tried selecting a few and clicking “mark as not important” but I”m not sure what affect that actually has on the rule.
