Statehood, which originated at the junction of the two greatest ancient empires of Persia and Byzantium. The pure spirit of Christianity that penetrated here in the first years after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. We go to the ancient stones of Mtskheta and the remains of the cave city Uplistsikhe, which is already 3000 years old … The history of the Georgian kingdom, its valiant people, betrayal of the weak in spirit, the greatness of wise rulers, fire, earthquakes, the clatter of military armor, the rustle of dress hems. This breath of past times, which has hardened the courage of the people for centuries, upholding faith and spirituality, is all that carries the genetic code of Georgians.

I think that everything said made a great deal of sense. But, think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier title? I am not saying your information isn't good., but suppose you added a headline that makes people want more? I mean Mtskheta and Uplistsikhe – the genetic code of Georgians. – Geotrace is a little vanilla. You should glance at Yahoo's front page and note how they create article titles to get people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to get readers excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.
