It's Content and It's Links – Are We Making SEO Too Complicated?

Posted by AndrewDennis33Content and links — to successfully leverage search as a marketing channel you need useful content and relevant links.

How to get in and around Desert Daze festival at Lake Perris

A year ago, Desert Daze moved westward for its seventh edition to put on its biggest production yet, taking over the Lake Perris State Recreation Area. But with expansion comes growing pains and the festival battled some headaches early on in the new venue, including fans sitting in hours of traffic to get in, parking problems and weak Wi-Fi and cell phone service. And then a freak thunderstorm cut off Tame Impala early in the band’s set — all on opening day. While Desert Daze rebounded over the...
