    It’s good to see that Microsoft is helping developers to create websites which adhere to SEO best practice. There are still many websites launched today that look great but are almost invisible to the search engines because of the overuse of flash and the lack of any metadata.

    Yah I’ve watched Jumong also seeing Munno in QSD I remembered he is the husband of Lady Sosiono who also plays a brave character, just made me sad that she was been married when Jumong return but then in the end they ended up together…however I am more fascinated and in love with QSD…Looking at the pictures of Kim Nam Gil’s (Lee Han) as Bidam makes me think to visit Korea…if only given the chance but anyway I am just his big fan here in Philippines
