“The Santafe.org web site is number one in Search Engine Optimization for searches on Santa Fe,” said Randy Randall, Executive Director for TOURISM Santa Fe. “We routinely hear from business partners that their top online referral source is santafe.org. Any tourism-related organization that wants to be seen by those planning a vacation to Santa Fe—or to be covered by the media who contact us—needs to be listed and active on www.santafe.org. Our new classes are an opportunity to be in the know and boost the bottom line for 2015 and beyond.”
