Default How I find unknown Companies/Manufacturers about the Logo ??

I want to know an easy way to find brands only about the logo.

Here an example: I need the company address from a toroidal transformer and I have only the brand logo that is in this case a red hedgehog/pin holder (I don't know the right english name exactly - go to the attachement)

By chance I have find out about
NORATEL SWEDEN AB - ELECTRICAL EQUI... - Reviews & Brand Information - NORATEL SWEDEN AB VAXJO , - Serial Number: 73495213
the associate company names:
Formerly the brand name was "TOROID" (also hard to find as company name by google, because the name "TOROID" is a colloquial term at the same time)
Now the currently brand name is "NORATEL" and finding informations by google is easy -
Noratel - transformer, reactor and power supply

Now the question:
what possibilities are there in general, to find the company about the web, if I have only the associated brand logo as picture or symbol as showed by the attached pictures (except semiconductor companies - about this there are a lot of logo portals on the web like
aufzu Halbleiterhersteller-Logos-Ecke
and in data books) ??

And a second question:
If the brand name is a colloquial term (like "TOROID") and I want to find the appropriate webaddress. What is here the best search method (try to find the webaddress of the audio amp manufacturer "POWER" by "google"
in the usual kind and you understand, what I mean) ??
On the attached image you will find the brand logo on top of the handles mounted on the front panel.

Hi best way I know is to go to google images Google Images click on the little camera icon in the right hand end of the search box and then upload the image you have.

With a bit of luck it will match an image someone else has uploaded and tagged, or an image on the manufacturers site and you will get your answer

Thank you for this advice. Some of unknown logos I can now assign.
Do you know, from when this is possible? I think, this is a new tool.
Unfortunately I haven't success by the logo "db" - a famous producer of high voltage booster caps (actually for tv horizontal fly-back transformer snubber's together with BU208/BU508 BjT's).
An image of such capacitor you will find by post #1 about
One of the best RIAA Network capacitor - for me unknown Brand
Unfortunately it is not
Cornell Dubilier Electronics, Inc. - Capacitor Solutions for Power Electronics
Perhaps somebody have an idea.
Thank you for this URL.
The second question in post #1 was intended as a general question and not specifically related to the old brand "TOROID".
...and sorry - the English language isn't my native language, thus in some cases I'll be misunderstood.
I wish to know a good way, to find web addresses of manufacturers by google, where its name is a colloquial term at the same time.

I'm not sure when the image search became available, I only found out about it a few months ago. I suspect that over time it will become more and more powerful.

Talking abut logos, we are overwhelmed daily with brand tones. They are the aural marketing hints -- like the "Law and Order" gavel sting, Yahoo's "yaaahhhooo-ooo," and the NBC chimes -- that immediately conjure up a specific company when we hear them. Yet only a couple of these familiar auditory tips are lawfully trademarked. Trademarkia just added trademark sounds to its database, making the process of registering a brand audio easier and less expensive than it ever has been previously.
