Woo-hoo! For the second year in a row, our website has won a prestigious award from WooRank. This leading SEO agency rates the quality and visibility of websites to improve their ranking on search engines such as Google.

Why is this award post-worthy? As more and more businesses have pivoted online and added a notable amount of content to the internet, Google developed a better way to "sort through the weeds," so to speak. Nowadays, it is more tricky for websites to reach the coveted first page! Google's engineers use algorithms, AI, machine learning, witchcraft, blah, blah, blah... Long story short, Google moves websites it likes to the top, and those it doesn't gradually get buried.

We thank the WooRank team for their services and for recognizing the West End Gallery. The scoring system for this award considers many factors, including how meaningful and relatable the content is, ensuring that we meet the needs of our visitors with the utmost professionalism. Moreover, it reinforces our commitment to providing a top-notch online experience for you and art collectors worldwide.

TLDR: We won an award. Google likes our website, and we hope you do as well!

05 March, 2024 3 min read

Breath of Life began with a drawing, a simple yet powerful blueprint for what would become a life-sized celebration of nature. In the concept sketches, we see the genesis of her vision—clusters of peonies rendered in loose, confident strokes. These initial marks are the seeds from which the full bloom of the diptych would grow.
