Here are three summaries of things happening on the Internet and in digital marketing you should know about.
- 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.
- Heard of Jamstik? Minneapolis-based Zivix just updated their original “smart guitar” and made national headlines with publishers like CultofMac.com.
- 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.
