Brooklyn, NY (PressExposure) March 03, 2011 -- Websites for Jewelers, a website design firm specializing in web development for the jewelry industry, announces their merger with Modo Media Group. This strategic alliance brings together an up and coming media company with a company that has directed many of the top jewelry company's forays into the World Wide Web.
Websites for Jewelers has specialized in website design for the jewelry industry since 1997. Their clients have included jewelry and diamond retailers, designers and manufacturers. They have designed websites for many of the top wedding and engagement ring designers and manufacturers as well as wholesalers of loose diamonds, diamond jewelry, and precious gemstone jewelry. Companies in the jewelry industry have very specific needs and Websites for Jewelers has the skills and experience to satisfy their needs.
Creating websites that portray jewelry in the best way possible is quite challenging. Diamond jewelry is especially difficult to make look beautiful. As most people would prefer to see jewelry in person, the challenge for a web design firm is to give people as close as possible an experience similar to visiting a jewelry store. Websites for Jewelers understands these challenges and works closely with many companies in the jewelry industry to meet these challenges.
"When we view the average jewelry website, we see a number of issues', Dan Globus of Websites for Jewelers comments. "One of the most common issues is that the jewelry images are simply not pictured large enough and with enough detail to allow people to get a good sense of what they are looking at. Many websites show jewelry images, especially diamond jewelry images, very small. How can a jewelry company expect someone to spend a fairly large sum of money on a piece of jewelry that lacks detail?"
Globus also points to some of the other issues that he comes across in jewelry websites designed by other firms that Websites for Jewelers addresses on a regular basis. These include missing unique page titles or duplicate page titles, missing Meta descriptions (the snippet of text that Google and other search engines list in their directories), Meta descriptions that do not describe jewelry well for consumers, URLs that are not search engine friendly, and last but not least, poorly designed pages.
"We have learned that in order to have an effective jewelry website, you must make sure that each and every page that has at least one piece of jewelry on it has a well written page title, a descriptive Meta tag that is both well written for the search engines as well as for consumers, and a search engine friendly URL."
In the 14 plus years that Websites for Jewelers has been designing websites for jewelry and diamond companies, they have pioneered much of the features, functions and designs that people now find in the best jewelry websites. Now, with the event of browsing on mobile devices including iPhones, Droids, Blackberries and the very popular iPad, they are now once again showing jewelry companies how to make their jewelry look its very best.
