What will happen with .tel?

Post by Sunrise on Wed 14 Aug 2013, 8:56 am

Situation:
  • SEO for .tel is very bad (both Telnic and Telnames).
  • .tels can't be found anywhere else than on search engines either.
  • I've never seen a more unprogressive website design than for the .tels at Telnic.
  • No work activity at Telnic since spring 2011.
  • Telnames is a stillbirth, because nobody can find a website without content.
  • Telnic don't like to cooperate with registrars, developers and customers.
  • Using the DNS is a brilliant idea, but it needs somebody who knows how to create the right tools.


Outlook:
Using the DNS could become gold.
Unfortunately with the bad implementation by Telnic it's impossible to create some awareness for .tel.

Result:
Wait for a new management at Telnic and a great success for .tel is possible.

@Sunrise - over 4 years since the launch of .tel and AFAIK not a single software developer (excluding Mark's tools for developers of course) has used the DNS data to create an AUTOMATED SOFTWARE SERVICE THAT APPEALS TO .TEL VIEWERS eg. such as Dial-By-Name etc.

This should send a message to Telnic/Telnames - you need to create a SIMPLE PARAMETER DRIVEN API SUCH AS PROVIDED BY EBAY THAT OUTPUTS XML DATA EASILY PROCESSED BY THE AVERAGE CODER.

Here is an example of such an API in action - an eBay RSS Feed link which looks for Silver BMW 3 Series Coupes (my current wheels) - it doesn't get much more straightforward to extract and process data !

So come on Telnic/Telnames, produce and publish such an API which doesn't require anything more involved than the above eBay example to action !

That's a nice idea from Mike.
But let's face it:
.tel has such fundamental problems that a small improvement alone can't rescue the TLD.
All the previous mistakes need to be corrected:
As long Telnic prevent a significant enhancement of design, SEO abilities, new features and creation of a directory, .tel will remain lost.

Sometimes, as I have suggested before, it's necesasary to accept that there are people in business who have "been there, done that" and can help you succeed !

With total regs now down to 215,659, from a peak of 333,891 on 1 March 2011,
I really think it's time to CALL IN THE CAVALRY and let
2 GUYS WITH PROVEN WORLDWIDE DOMAIN MASS MARKETING SUCCESS help Telnic/Telnames forward to "critical mass" - without which .tel will gradually wither and fade away !

Kash, please don't let pride stop you contacting Monte and Michael !

After all, if ROTD are good enough for .CO !

PS. ROTD are good enough for .ASIA as well !

My guess is that Telnic had not even realized that a problem exists.
If they had that, they would have become active long ago.

Mike, it is quite easy at the moment to include RSS  Feeds into a dot tel site. For example see   http://goo.gl/ACLNMG

@Keith - I appreciate that, and have successfully used RSS Feeds myself into a Telnic .tel using Mark's RSS feeder tool.

But what I was talking about was Telnic producing a SIMPLE API to access the DATA IN THE DNS that every .tel contains.

This API would take a single URL with parameters (with no authorisation required as read-only) and output XML data which can then easily be parsed by a moderately experienced coder.

The BMW example given was to show how eBay approach the same task i.e. letting developers have access to their user data on a read-only basis.

This sort of API access should be capable of being written and tested by Telnic in just a few weeks - the need for it is quite clear as NO DEVELOPER IN 4+ YEARS (apart from Mark for software tools) has shown they are prepared to commit the resources to exploit the DATA IN THE DNS using Telnic's current access method !
