SEO: Who do you trust?

September 8th, 2008

Internet search engines exist to organize the seemingly immeasurable amount of information available on the web. They direct people to pages that are relevant to their searches, pages that discuss the exact keywords they are looking for. For businesses that receive the majority of their clientele from search engines, search engine rankings can make or break their business. Search Engines Search engine optimization (SEO) is a marketing technique that enhances a website and its content in order to increase the chances of achieving a high rank the search engine result pages (SERPs). Search engines are very secretive about their criteria and ranking systems as they continuously update and revise their algorithms (mathematical formulas used to determine which web pages are displayed in search results), and therefore there is less likelihood of webmasters and search engine optimizers being able to achieve higher rankings by manipulation and spamming. Every search engine has its own formula and criteria for indexing and ranking pages. One can analyze SERPs and backward links (all the links pointing at a particular web page) and attempt to determine a search engine's indexing criteria, however there's a lot of risk involved in relying on a limited number of optimization techniques. Because of the unpredictable nature of search engines, websites can easily move from a top ranking position on a SERP down to the third or fourth SERP or even be banned from the search engine altogether.

LogoBee Completes a New W3C Compliant OSCMax

August 21st, 2008

W3C logo designLogoBee logo design has recently taken it upon itself to start the cleanup of the OSCMax Shopping Cart Suite. This project was intended to accommodate web developers and programmers in general.  The final version has been released in the hopes that the web community, and LogoBee clients, will benefit  from their best efforts. OSCMax is a derivative of osCommerce which is the world’s most used Shopping Cart. It comes with a lot of extra functionality pre-installed, while osCommerce requires you to install them manually.  Many articles have been written on the fact that this open-source solution is not W3C compliant and that it would be a large job to resolve this. These articles point out that a full cleanup to bring the code up to speed with the W3C compliancy expectations would be quite complicated. LogoBee logo design has done their best to make the OSCMax Shopping Cart Suite code W3C compliant. The code was quite extensive and the clean up was a time consuming process; but LogoBee is proud to release the results of their best efforts.  Now website developers and programmers from the global web community will be able to benefit from their hard work with the new OSCMax shopping cart suite which can be found on LogoBee.com. The final version produced by the LogoBee team has been released and the web community is encouraged to try it out. This final version of the OSCMax Shopping Cart Suite can be found on the LogoBee website at this location:  http://www.logobee-web.com/demo/oscmax/.

WVCS hosts 24th Annual Picnic in the Park Fund Raiser

July 6th, 2008

Chance to show new logo design September the 6th will see the 24th annual Picnic in the Park hosted by West Valley Community Services, Inc. (WVCS) at the Cupertino Civic Center Plaza. This is a fundraising event to help support WCVS so that it may continue offering valuable non-profit services. This event will take a considerable amount of preparation, especially since they will be marketing their new logo design donated to them by LogoBee just prior to this event. However, WVCS does not shy away from hard work. WVCS is a non-profit organization; that is why they are required to host fundraising drives and events. They offer valuable services to the Santa Clara County area such as: food, shelter, clothes, affordable housing and financial assistance. In order for a fundraising event to be successful the general public must get involved. This requires a certain degree of public recognition for the non-profit group. This is why WVCS applied to the Annual LogoBee Logo Design Makeover Contest last December. Having a brand that is easy to remember is helpful when hosting events like the Picnic in the Park. The Picnic in the Park will involve a silent and live auction; and a BBQ sponsored by the generous people at the Outback Steakhouse. The event should be fun for all participants who attend.  So if you are in the area please drop by and help contribute to a worthwhile cause. Keep your eyes open for event posters with the new “Health – Home – Heart” logo design for more details about this event.

Heart Warming Feature on CNN Money

March 13th, 2008

The article is a remarkable story about a young man with epilepsy who took a hobby of his and created a successful business called Anthony’s Beehive.  Montreal based graphic design company LogoBee, Inc was very proud to learn about their client’s recent feature in FORTUNE Small Business on CNN Money.    Anthony’s Beehive was a pleasure to work with on their logo design and website projects; and their journey is a touching story for all readers.
LogoBee was moved by the story of Anthony’s Beehive; the story hit close to home since the chief LogoBee coordinator working on their logo design and web design projects, Tim Liboiron, also has epilepsy.  Tim feels strongly that Anthony’s odyssey is a tale that needs to be spread.  Tim worked on this project vigorously to see Anthony receive the logo design and website that best portrayed Anthony’s Beehive.
The feature basically covers Anthony’s story starting from his birth and ending at running his successful business today.  Born with epilepsy, Anthony’s concerned parents Tony and Terri were worried about his future.  Tony returned to school so that he could get a teaching job in order to hire additional care for his son.  While in grade three Anthony asked his parents to add bees to the farm that they ran on the side.  His interest in bees and their honey led to selling honey to the local shops.  One day his parents noticed an entrepreneur course offered at the local high school.  The benefits of this course plus Anthony’s incredible people skills helped take his hobby and expand it into a successful business.  Anthony’s interest in bees and their unique produce was the reason for his creation of multi flavored lip balms which included the ingredients honey and beeswax.  This passion has kept Anthony experimenting with new lip balm flavors and has established Anthony’s Beehive with its twenty flavors of lip balm, as a fascinating business.
Please go to the CNN Money website to read the full feature on this remarkable business and the wonderful young man who lends it his name.  LogoBee urges all entrepreneurs to read this story for the inspiration required to make their dreams come true.  The article can be found at: http://money.cnn.com/2008/03/04/smbusiness/buzz_honey.fsb/index.htm

LogoBee creates artistic logo design and website for LG Art Gallery

March 7th, 2008

Marketing has always been important to businesses and in the information society of today the internet is a necessity for all companies.  One of LogoBee’s recent clients realized this and has taken advantage of their various services.  LogoBee offers customers more than just custom logo design services; they also offer graphic design services for business stationery, brochures, flyers and web design.  This lets customers get professional design work done to satisfy all of their marketing needs.
Wesley Geys the VP of the L G Art Gallery contracted LogoBee to design a logo.  A contemporary and modern art gallery that sells paintings and sculptures located in Florida.  Beautiful art sells but a proper brand can help a company get recognized.  The abundance of graphic design information available on the LogoBee website; and straight forward explanation for getting started was very helpful in the beginning.  The constant customer support ensured that the proper design was created within a minimum amount of time.
Therefore, when Mr. Geys required the creation of a website for the L G Art Gallery he consulted the LogoBee website.  The available samples of past websites which were designed by the web team at LogoBee impressed Mr. Geys and he contacted them for an estimate on the website that he had in mind.  According to Mr. Geys, “The design process was fantastic.  It went really smooth and all the main items were discussed and understood before they went to design.” This led to a sleek website design and CMS which is easy to upload art that is currently for sale.  The logo design can be seen on the website and compliments the rest of the site beautifully.  Since the same company was used for both designs this was a natural occurrence.
Satisfying your clients should be the goal of any graphic design company and LogoBee strives to accomplish this with every project.  Mr. Geys was certainly satisfied and “would absolutely recommend LogoBee to anyone needing a logo design or website.”  If you are in need in both services, LogoBee would be happy to help.

LogoBee creates logo design for Vienna Art Gallery

December 13th, 2007

The FPKK Przeczek & Seredynski KG art gallery in Vienna has just recently received a logo design created by LogoBee.  When one thinks about Vienna images of a rich cultural heritage, classical music and beautiful art usually come to mind.  That is why Tomasz Seredynski decided to take his passion for art there and establish an art gallery.  The gallery deals mostly in modern and contemporary art.  When he decided to get an artistic logo design for his gallery he turned to LogoBee for help.
The logo design for the FPKK Przeczek & Seredynski KG art gallery is very strong and concrete; but it is also simple and easy to remember.  These were reasons why Mr. Seredynski wanted this particular design.  He was happy with the colours used which are platinum/gold and black since these are associated with luxury.  Of course the logo design also contains hints of modern and abstract artistic styles since these are the art forms that the gallery deals in primarily.
Art is a passion and it can be one that takes up a lot of time.  For those who are serious about art it is usually something that will be prominent in their lives.  Mr. Seredynski spends most of his time around art.  He plans on taking part in the Vienna Art Fair during April of next year among other artistic events.  He would also like to host an exhibit for the artist Jan Niksinski, a Polish abstractionist.
LogoBee practices graphic art, which is a different medium than the type Mr. Seredynski deals with, but they keep themselves very busy as well.  The LogoBee team works with many clients for as long as it takes to create the perfect logo design to represent their business.  Mr. Seredynski mentioned how happy he was with his final logo design, but that it would not have turned out as good without the help of the LogoBee employees.  Speaking to customers and listening to their opinions is part of the reason why LogoBee can make so many artistic logo designs that are tailor made for various businesses.
