edit The Bank of New York
The Bank of New York is a financial services provider that operates in four key areas: private banking, securities servicing, investment management and treasury management.
Founded in 1784, the bank is the oldest in the USA. It operates in 33 countries worldwide, with assets of US$ 103.4 billion as of June 2007.
The Bank of New York is set to merge with the Mellon Financial Corporation to form what will be known as The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation.
Alexander Hamilton founded the Bank of New York in 1784, and it opened on June 9, shortly after British troops left America. Eight years later, the bank would become the first corporate stock that was traded on the New York Stock Exchange.
The Bank of New York merged with the New York Life Insurance & Trust Company in 1922.
The bank's first major acquisitions came in 1948 with the purchase of The Fifth Avenue Bank. It would also acquire the Empire Trust Company in 1966 and the National Community Banks in New Jersey and the Putnam Trust Company during the nineties. From 1996 to 2007, the bank acquired over 80 companies, including the prestigious Pershing company in 2003.

The new company would have US$ 16.6 trillion in assets under custody and corporate trustee with $8 trillion in assets under trusteeship. This would rank it among the Top 10 asset managers in the world, with over $1.1 trillion in assets under management.
edit Terms of Merger
Under the merger, shareholders of the Bank of New York would get 0.9434 shares in the new Bank of New York Mellon Corporation for each share of Bank of New York that they own. Meanwhile, shareholders of Mellon would get one share in the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation for each share of Mellon they own. Another 19.9 percent of the issuer's outstanding common stock would fall under a mutual stock option agreement by the Bank of New York and Mellon..
In terms of management, Bank of New York’s chairman and chief executive officer Thomas A. Renyi would be the executive chairman of the Bank of New York Mellon for 18 months after the deal is closed. He is tasked to oversee the integration of the two companies.
Mellon’s current chairman, president and chief executive officer Robert P. Kelly would be the new company’s chief executive and, after 18 months, will succeed Renyi as chairman of the board. The current Bank of New York president, Gerald L. Hassell, will also serve as president of the new company.

Search Engine Friendliness
A few simple technical fixes can make any site show up better in
The title of a web page appears in search results as the link to that page. Learn more ...
The title of a web page appears as a clickable link in search results and bookmarks. A descriptive, compelling home page title with relevant keywords can increase the number of people visiting the site.
Search engines view the text of the title tag as a strong indication of what the page is about. Accurate keywords in the title tag can help the page rank better in search results.
A title tag should have fewer than 70 characters, including spaces. Major search engines won't display more than that.
The title tag of your home page (and any other page on your site) should not contain the site’s domain name or URL. These will appear near the title in search results, so use your 70 characters to tell people what the page is about. The title tag should not contain any HTML, because it will be displayed incorrectly or not at all.
- Good: This web page has a title tag.
- Good: The title tag is a good length.

- “BNY Mellon | Asset Management and Securities Servicing”
The H1 heading is an important sentence or phrase on a web page that quickly and clearly tells people and search engines what they can expect to find there. Learn more ...
Just one H1
In most cases, a web page should have just one H1 heading. Using multiple H1 headings is okay if that is a logical way to organize the page, but they should be used sparingly. That’s because search engines can view multiple H1 headings as an attempt to signal that all the content on a page is equally important, a tactic that’s seen as an attempt to game the search engine algorithms.
Search engines look for an H1 heading to determine what a page is about. Human visitors do, too.
Content and placement
The H1 heading appears on the web page itself, unlike the page title, which people will see mostly in search results.
The H1 tag (which contains the H1 heading) is usually listed first among the other heading tags for a page. None of the major search engines, however, will penalize a site for listing H2 through H6 tags ahead of the H1 tag.
- Warning: This page has more than one H1 heading. It should have just one.
- H1 headings for this site's home page:
- “Our Latest Thinking – ForeSight”

Your website's robots.txt file can tell search engines to ignore parts of your site. Learn more ...
Website owners usually use robots.txt to let search engines know which pages or sections of their site shouldn't be indexed for example, web contact forms, print versions of web pages and other content that's duplicated elsewhere on the site. Robots.txt can also be used to request that specific robots not index a site. For more information, read How To Use Robots.txt.
Search engine robots
You'll need to know the names of specific search engine robots - or "bots" – if you’re going to exclude any or all of them from any part of your site.
- Google’s bot is called Googlebot. Google is the world’s largest search engine, and is where many people discover new websites.
- Bing’s bot is called msnbot. Bing also provides search results to people using Yahoo to search the Web. Together, Bing and Yahoo are the second largest search resource, after Google.
- Baidu’s bot is called Baiduspider. Baidu is a major search engine in China, and the number of people using it is increasing rapidly.
- AboutUs.org’s bot is called AboutUsBot. To create a Site Report, AboutUs uses crawling technology that’s similar to what search engines use.
- Good: This website’s robots.txt file is not blocking major search engines from crawling its pages. Your website can appear in any engine’s search results.
This website can live at www.BankOfNY.com or BankOfNY.com. It's best for your site's visibility to live at just one URL, or web address. You'll want to create a 301 redirect to the URL you choose from the other URL. Learn more ...
Choose one or the other
If the same web page exists at two different URLs, people can choose to link to one or the other. Links from other sites to your website are valuable — they tell search engines that your site is important to people. By splitting valuable links between two identical pages, you're diluting the power of those links to help a page rank higher in search results.
