Here are three summaries of things happening on the Internet and in digital marketing you should know about.

  1. Leading off the list, here are 10 famous logo redesigns from the first half of 2015. Hubspot also published a list of their 12 favorite college logo designs. Check them out.
  2. Heard of Jamstik? Minneapolis-based Zivix just updated their original “smart guitar” and made national headlines with publishers like CultofMac.com.
  3. Finally, 301 redirects are a thing (and have been for years). If you’ve ever tried navigating to a page like example.com/red-product, but your browser actually took you to example.com/new-red-product, you’ve been redirected. Redirects like this one tell your browser to skip the page you were trying to open, and instead land on a different page. A 301 redirect, to be more specific, is a website’s way of telling Google that the old page is no longer live, and that users should be redirected (ergo the clever name) to a newer, more relevant page instead. Digital marketers have used 301s for years, most commonly when a client’s website is rebuilt and many of the previous pages will no longer exist on the new version of the site.
