When the board of Cumberland Valley Antique Engine & Machinery Association (CVAEMA) approached us to create a new website for them, they had a vision: a refreshed website with an updated look, enhanced functionality, the ability to showcase who they are and what they have to offer, and they hoped to attract both event attendees as well as draw in new members with an interest in agricultural history.
To do this, they were looking at becoming even more user friendly by highlighting their annual events. They wanted to make navigation easy for attendees andvendors to learn where to stay and what features to expect at the event.
We jumped right in to research, design, code, setup, and handle modifications for this amazing new vision. Our team wanted to give their website the “WOW” factor they desired– by using their organizations’ photos and a style to blend them into a retro feel that still felt fresh and exciting.
All of these components make for a complex project – how do you pull together years of information but make it look new? How do you make the site user-friendlywithout losing information necessary to the organization?
To create the new CVAEMA website we did our research, investigated the event-planning software they currently use and are comfortable with, and then started the fun part:
- Logo Design
- Community Calendar Creation
- Blog Integration
- Content Management
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
The end result is a fully responsive website with a modern yet classic feel that is simple to navigate. The NEW website for Cumberland Valley Antique Engine & Machinery Association (CVAEMA) is ready to serve as a valuable tool for the organization.
Our team can create compelling and awesome graphics for your website that make your brand standout across all devices. We encourage you to visit www.cvantiqueengine.org on all devices to understand the improved responsive technology.

On May 14th, 2015 Bing announced they would start displaying search results on mobile devices with tags on websites that were mobile friendly. This will allow mobile users to quickly look through the search results to find the websites that fulfill their needs quicker with a mobile friendly design. Creating a better user experience for Bing users. You can see in the image of the Bing search results there is a tag to the left of the site titles that are deemed as mobile friendly by Bing.
This announcement comes on the heels of another recent mobile friendly search engine change from Google where they also announced changes on the results that are displayed to mobile searches. Both updates are very similar and they aim to serve better search results for the ever-growing mobile internet crowd.
What’s Bing Looking For?
Bing stated that they would be looking at a handful of factors in determining what websites would receive the “Mobile-Friendly” tag beside their listing in the search results. The factors they said would determine mobile friendliness include:
- Navigation – Is the navigation of your website easy to use on mobile devices? Are the menus and buttons large enough and spaced apart well enough for a touch-based device?
- Text Readability – Is the text on the website formatted to be readable on smaller screen sizes? Does the content on the site display well without having to zoom in on the screen?
- Page Scrolling (Page Fit) – Does the page fit on every device screen size without having to zoom in or pan across the width of the website? The site should be able to display well on a narrow display.
- Compatible Content – Are all of the embedded media files (videos, images, audio, ect.) compatible with every device that may view your website?
According to their official release, each of these factors will need to be met before Bing will consider your website mobile friendly. They also state there are a few other things that they consider before applying the mobile friendly tag to your listing in mobile search results including the use of pop-ups and access to all CSS (style sheet) files.
