Meet Lumar — why we’ve changed our name & what it means for our users

GIF Deepcrawl is now Lumar

Today, we’ve updated our name and branding to reflect our transition from a pure technical SEO platform into a broader website intelligence solution. Learn more about the brand change, Lumar’s history, and our vision for the future here. 

Introducing Lumar.
 

Why ‘Lumar’?

We’ve made some big changes in 2022!

As of today, we’re taking on a new name: Lumar

Before now, we were known globally as Deepcrawl, a name that reflected our origins in website crawling and technical SEO. As websites have evolved to new levels of complexity, our offering is evolving to meet the expanding needs of digital teams. Over the years, we’ve grown from a pure technical SEO platform into a broader website intelligence platform. As Lumar, our new identity matches our vision for the future of website intelligence. 

Our new name comes from the concept of illumination — we’re helping businesses see their websites’ technical foundations in a new light and providing clarity across departments to help brands create healthy, high-performing, revenue-driving websites.

What’s changing? What’s not?

Don’t worry — we’re still focused on websites’ technical excellence. And we’re still constantly improving our market-leading website crawler and developing loads of new technical SEO features. 

Our latest crawler release has achieved new levels of speed and flexibility — it’s the engine behind our current and future expansions. We know how important our crawler is to our users, too!  As such, our crawling technology remains a core focus of our work here at Lumar. 

Our users will continue to have the same access to our platform as they had before — in addition to getting early access to additional features like our website health scores, benchmarking, and traffic funnel visualizations

We’re also building out exciting new offerings, expanding our metrics and reporting to include new disciplines, and building a more extensive platform for website intelligence that can impact businesswide goals across an organization. 

As Lumar, our brand now matches our expansive outlook for what website intelligence will look like in the future. The need for website intelligence extends beyond a single department or role — SEOs, developers, digital marketers, product teams, and leadership all have a need for deep insights into their digital assets’ health and success. We’re building solutions that will help these cross-functional teams work together and get more out of their website efforts. 


What’s changing: Our new corporate brand is transitioning from Deepcrawl to Lumar. (We hope you love the new name & look as much as we do!)

What’s not changing: We’re still dedicated to creating robust technical SEO solutions — in addition to expanding our offering for marketingproductdigital operations, and engineering teams.

What’s not changing: You’ll have the same access to our library of educational materials in our blog, webinars, SEO Office Hours library, eBooks, and product guides

Verve’s creative director and co-founder, Rindor Golverdingen, described the Lumar branding process:

“Lumar and Verve are both comprised of deeply passionate and enthusiastic individuals — it’s why we connected well right from the start. The Verve team was honored to take on the challenge of creating a new brand identity that brings Lumar’s long-term vision to life.

In our journey to represent the concept of website intelligence creatively, we came across deep-sea creatures, sky castles, icebergs, mirror palaces, and a whole lot more. Our explorations resulted in an illustrative, optimistic, and lightweight brand identity that’s built for agility and can be swiftly applied across a variety of media, while being both visually distinctive and easily recognizable.

The people at Lumar are pretty damn kind — and a real joy to work with. We’re thankful for the wonderful collaboration with them, as well as the great people at Reed Words and AUFI — it was a true joy to create the new Lumar brand with this team of amazing people.”
