Announcing four new DMO websites powered by Simpleview CMS: Mississippi Gulf Coast, Pocono Mountains, San Luis Obispo and Temecula Valley

For Immediate Release 

TUCSON, December 1 — Simpleview launched four new destination marketing websites in Q3 2009: Mississippi Gulf Coast, Pocono Mountains, San Luis Obispo County and Temecula Valley, all powered by the company's content management system, Simpleview CMS. Some notable features of the new sites include advanced search tools for helping visitors find content in a snap, rich content, search engine optimization (SEO) and a robust Content Management System (CMS):

  • Visitor-centric listings searches — website visitors can search lodging, dining, shopping and more by combinations of subcategory, area and/or keyword (Mississippi Gulf Coast)
  • Insider Information — blogging covering everything from hunting and fishing to arts, networking and culinary delights demonstrates best practices for DMOs (Pocono Mountains)
  • Search-optimized photos — Simpleview's Video & Photo Tour application allows search engines to fully index photos by generating "hidden" HTML pages (San Luis Obispo)
  • Friendlier tools for managing website banner ads — back-end site administration tools color-code potential ads by size, making it easy to match ads to suitable locations in page templates (Temecula)
