    Are both days the same or totally different presentations and content? I can’t make it on Saturday but would love to attend on Sunday.

      Saturday is a standard conference with two tracks of seminars and panels. Sunday will feature open tables with hands-on help from experts for your sites and needs.

    I am looking for ways to get my blog in front of more people so that I can get more traffic and also so I can build name/brand recognition in my market area (Birmingham area). Thanks.

    I have another question. If I migrate an old non WordPress website to WordPress will I lose any Google rankings I had with that site because of the move. I would have the same web address. Thanks.
