  • Çok faydas? oldu te?ekkür ediyorum.

    Translated by Google Translate: Was very helpful thank you.

  • Nice post. Being an SEO / Web designer myself, I’m pretty picky when it comes to websites. So often they’re overly busy and complicated. But something as simple as a (well chosen) and groovy background can really lift the overall look of a site.

    Just don’t let the background overpower the site though.
