The Akademi Fantasia blog is about personal experience, beauty places around the world and also odd stuffs found along the way. Currently the blog is having Google PR of 4, Alexa Rank of 50000 and unique visitors of about 80000+ monthly. It will take time but sooner or later this gonna be huge archieve of most beautiful and interesting places in the world. Following is a history list of the blog achievement.

    to know if this is something which would be of interest to you?

    The placement of our adverts are contextually matched to the content on

    as we feel the positioning of your website will have strong benefits for
    both parties.

    Please email me back with your thoughts or questions.

    Thanks for dropping by my website. I hope you don’t mind my comment in Nomadic Matt website. It wasn’t really a criticism but I do think that the domain name is very misleading. Your website has improved a lot since my last visit about a year ago.

    In regards to my website, I thought I have already worked on my SEO, what else is missing? Do you mind sharing? Thanks.
