Telnames reaches a new milestone...

Post by mikeseaton on Fri 04 Apr 2014, 8:24 am

...of over 10,000 Telnames .tels indexed in Google - see https://www.google.com/search?q=%22powered+by+telnames.com%22

I shall refrain from making a comment - I have work to do today on a software service I am developing (not for .Tel, which IMO is screwed until the money runs out), but I'm sure other forum members will add their views on such an "achievement" !

Maybe I'm being too generous to Telnames ?

Just redid the Google query but added site:.tel in front to ensure only .tels are listed incorporating the phrase powered by telnames.com and the result is a measly 6,770 - see https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3A.tel+%22powered+by+telnames.com%22

Some - but not all - of the 3K+ discrepancy can be accounted for by looking at the result of the query https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3A.com+%22powered+by+telnames.com%22

At least you have the world's first REAL Telnames directory in basis.

If Telnames could base the Search Engine on indexing only those results, then create the simple ability to search within those results for Telnames pages, you would actually have the world's first REAL Telnames SE, with a reason to call yourself the World's First Global Telephone Directory.

It's a start !

added:

I notice that all you have to do is search using what you did, plus a term, and you actually get pretty decent results, even if poor order.

site:.tel "powered by telnames.com" SEARCH TERM

So just Google:

site:.tel "powered by telnames.com" steve

Again, content leads over domain name / title, but at least it doesn't completely $uck.  Certainly better than Telpages!!!!

Should take Telnames a week max to code and test - assuming they use the freely available APIs from the likes of Google or Bing.

No point in re-inventing the wheel !

10,000 domains isn't a real milestone.
10,000,000 would be one.

Except that they do need to re-invent the algorithm.

Searching and providing content is garbage versus title and domain name precedent.

Telnames in the Telnames Directory should focus on people and businesses that are .tel registrants first, just like the Yellow/White Pages.

You search in there and you get titles, not garbage.

Further to my above post on 4 April 2014 Indexed Telnames Domains have now crept up to 7,070 - see https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3A.tel+%22powered+by+telnames.com%22

Divide that into the $35,000,0000 shareholder investment and it gives you an average cost figure of $4,950 per indexed Telnames domain !

Before anyone points out that I have omitted Telnic subdomain .tels in the above calculation, the reason for this is that they are no longer actively promoted or developed - Telnames single-page .tels are now "the only game in town".
