.tel of the week
 
If you wish your .tel to be featured at http://telnic.org/community-weeklytel.html, please submit your domain name here with a short explanation why you think this domain is useful and how you plan to develop it.

nadya06-11-2009 04:27 PM




sexpositions.tel - please beware of adult content
This is actually a very interesting use of .tel.

Mendoza.tel information about Mendoza City Argentina
hotels and lodging

dottel06-12-2009 03:20 PM




@Nadya 
I think we should have a separate section for that kinda .tel?
I mean to list those under one section..

Cheers

rostel06-12-2009 10:09 PM




Hi all... horoscopedaily.tel
Destiny and fate

nadya06-12-2009 10:42 PM




Well, we did add the adult warning. If this .tel offends you, I'll move this over to a separate section. But it'd probably attract more attention and controversy that way

Gav06-16-2009 01:49 PM




gretnagreen.tel - Gretna Green is one of the world's most popular wedding destinations, hosting over 5000 weddings each year.

lakeside.tel - Over 250 stores within the shopping centre - and together with the retail park, it forms one of the largest shopping destinations in the UK.

icould.tel - Could be used in a number of ways if people needed to find something out.

[size]
Some very interesting .tel domains here. Are they all for sale or are you planning to use them in some way yourself?[/size]

Gav06-18-2009 07:54 PM




Hi Nadya

Thanks for your question.

Im not sure what I am going to do with them yet to be honest.

I love the idea of the .tel and did try to register loads of them.

I have a few that I really like which include these and a few others. I secured some fun ones to that I liked such as 

Neverland

Flush

NetPromoter

Creampie

TheStrip

Another

NBE

QXL


I also secured some christian names which include

Hayley - Top 700 US name for many years

Delia 

Shelia - Very popular name in Australia

Chay


I will probably hold onto them and see what happens over the next year or so, if it takes off like I hope they may be worth a few pounds

Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.

Regards

Gav

Miniguide.tel
 
Hi All,

Great to be posting at the "Mothership"

For those who don't know about it, I have created a miniguide for .tel that is also hosted on a .tel

Check out:

miniguide.tel

This is potentially a .tel source for all sorts of miniguides, but having a .tel miniguide located on miniguide.tel just made sense

[size]
Now it's my turn to welcome you to the forum, Steve. It's an honour!

Re your guide - I think it's a brilliant idea. The fact that you have to have short independent facts in the miniguide's keywords (because they are displayed in a random order) makes it succinct and dynamic. 

Why do you have a link to dot-tel.miniguide.tel from miniguide.tel as two separate entries: as a website and as a 'Go-to'? Websites open in a new window, go-to is the special contact type for .tel domains.[/size]

Shahid06-23-2009 01:04 PM




Netzone.tel
 
Hello, sorry for posting so much but its just exciting to post on .tel forums 

i wanted to share www.netzone.tel with you all just created it awhile back for my own 
identity and presence online i think it can be a good guide to people who are wanting 
to design their company on .tel platform

suggestions and reviews are welcomed


Shahid

FreakySteve06-23-2009 01:50 PM




Thank you for the warm welcome Nadya and thank you for the compliment on the miniguide.

The short facts were the key. Not only was it a lesson in brevity, but also a great .tel content demo.

The web link was there before the go-to links were born. I had left it originally to see/show the differences, but I have now removed it.

Miniguide.tel shows that .tels can be about more than just contact information. (But we all knew that ;))

Tweet 2 tel
 
Tweet 2 Tel has been in production now for a couple of months as a free SEO service. Over 700 domains are registered and the statistics show improved rankings for many domains. Tweet2.tel provides constantly-changing dynamic content to a more-or-less static tel domain.

My telnic stats log shows that hundreds of hits are coming to tweet2.tel which in turn lead to the registered domains. A search of Google for explicitly "tweet2.tel" now lists over 200 unique entries. Jepaa yields over 700 entries. These links are growing daily.

Through the power of grouping like-domains together in the same subfolder, long-tail searches are improved. Some examples that speak to the power to tweet2.tel:

Google search for mobile quizzes (no quotes) yields the tweet2.tel entry at #10 while the qiz.tel site is at # 14.

search for valeria gentile escort (no quotes) now yields a #2 position in google which leads to the tweet2.tel entry for escortagency.tel, which is not even found in google

Anyone can add their domain to tweet2.tel and see if it can improve traffic in a few weeks. Tweet to tel is currently free as an experiment, with a paid service coming later this year.

Hope you will find it of great value.

Mark

BTW, Tweet2.tel is also an example of an automatically-self-populating tel domain that does not use CTH to maintain data (SOAP + PHP).

Sylhet.tel
 
I have developed this directory as the Online contact directory for Sylhet, Bangladesh. I will be pleased if you enlist it as a .tel of the week. If you think there is any lacking please let me know as I am always working on it.

Howard06-25-2009 09:48 AM




http://sylhet.tel/ looks great, it's well populated and will be an excellent resource for people living in and visiting Sylhet. We'll certainly consider this for our .tel of the week page. 

We have recently produced templates for Bar/Restaurant and Retail .tel sites at
http://telnic.org/community-managetel.html you might find these useful in expanding some of the folders that you have created to provide even richer content.

Shahid06-25-2009 11:00 AM




Great job there almaruf, i think this directory can go very far.

James - that looks like it's coming on really well. What kind of response have you had to .tel from the people of Ashtead?

Are you planning to start charging for listings once you have a solid base?

Nice to meet many person
 
I think I can develop my can.tel.

Supplies.tel The Global catalogue of verified suppliers & exporters
 
Hello.
I bring to your attention the project supplies.tel
It is Global B2B portal (catalogue) with the contact data of the companies from different sectors of trade. The user, having come on a site can quickly find its interesting products and services, then to choose the country with which it wishes to co-operate, after a country choice it is offered to choose a certain province in which the necessary companies suppliers and their contact data work.

As the project very big, it is in a working out stage.
Now I search investors for the project and I will listen to your offers concerning information filling of the project, its advancement.
I ask to write your opinion concerning this project.

Now in a category "Agriculture" you can see how the project works and to choose the company necessary to you works.
I would like that you have added a resource supplies.tel on your site.
Thanks.

Triton NW07-01-2009 08:36 PM




another example
 
Hello,
I certainly do not think my .tel is one that is interesting enough to qualify for the.tel of the week. I am in the telecom industry and often work with consultants that have been hired by a business to lower their telecom bills. I have a large list of these consultants so I made telecomconsultants.tel as a referral service and directory. There are over 250 consultants in the list and thanks to the Telfeeder platform they are all loaded and up to date. I also started a blog that links to the new site.

Triton NW07-01-2009 08:37 PM




Hi Harison
I have greensuppliers.tel and will be doing something with a different spin. Best of luck on your great site

Shahid07-01-2009 09:40 PM




Hello Harrison,

that's a very nice idea and concept i tried to get b2b.tel for it but didn't find the use 
that much as the price seemed to be too high and secondly populating this domain
will not be an easy task as listing all genuine people will not be a joke apart from that
i would be happy if you add a point that all these suppliers are listed here but you take no 
responsibility of them as incase anything goes wrong you will be part of the blame.
i personally had an interest with b2b and launched www.bazar4me.com costed me over
8,500 US$ but no outcome from it.but i guess in future it might turn out well.

[size]


telecomconsultants.tel is a very nice site and very informative hopefully when its more populated it will be a Treasure for the person looking for telecommunication consultants
one thing i would like to point out.

Please use name of the person in upper box

and the number and email in the lower section of the contact us since .tel is all about
click and contact it will be good that way, its a suggestion and request as it will make
your site look alot better and .tel not fade away as .tel is all about click and contact but then again its your wish

www.marineparts.tel can be seen for reference or www.demo.rentluxury.tel 
also add keywords and name int he panel which you give to the person it helps in the seo
and also will give that person more chance to pay you something in future to you for giving him an online presence.

Thanks

Shahid[/size]

Triton NW07-01-2009 11:42 PM




Thanks Shahid
All great points. The only problem I have with the point and click in this case is that most will be on my site from an office PC and the telephone number looks way better up top. My geo that features the wineries in my area will have the number in both locations. Up top for the old school and click to call for the GenX crowd

almaruf07-02-2009 04:57 AM




hi,

I own few .tel domain those I would like to sell. I think these are really interesting ......... The domain are ::: cheapcalls.tel , homeless.tel , book-a-hotel.tel , gmg.tel . Can anyone suggest me how can I sell these domain and how much I can charge for these domains.

I have also other domains those are same as the companies .com domains. ....... banglalinkgsm.tel (a Telcom company from bangladesh), abbank.tel (Anderson Brothers bank, USA) Can someone suggest what can I do with this domain (how can I make some benefit from these as well.

[size]
What can you do?
[/size]

  • Contact the companies and see if they want to buy them from you. Although you need to educate them about .Tel
  • Develop the contact directories
  • Last but not the least, put the domains for sale on sedo, on webmaster forums.

[size]
Hello Almaruf, 

you have some good domains, as dottel said it would be good if you contact the companies and talk to them and explain about .tel not only by talking but also showing them live examples and teach them how it can be beneficial to them in long run

1) No computer expert required for .tel modificaion
2) no extra maintenance cost or hosting fees ( one time yearly renewal only )
3) Live update 
4) last but not the least your .tel stays with you where ever you go, your company
can change from
a ) one street to another
b ) one city to another city 
c ) one country to another country 

but your .tel will always remain the same

i noticed you have some names like 

banglalinkgsm.tel (a Telcom company from bangladesh), abbank.tel (Anderson Brothers bank, USA) 

you might have problems incase they are registered trademarks, so it will be advisable not to offer them to buy it from you or try to sell it to someone else on basis of profit.

Thanks

Shahid[/size]

[size]
Well, one can always offer the domain to the actual trademark reg for some price (high $$$ to low $$$$), as majority of the companies would buy it at that price as they have to spend much more if they want to approach the court (on lawyers and proceeding fees).

According to my experience a genuine reg company would not mind to invest on buying their trademark. But make sure that you bought it on the fact that you are un-aware of the trademark and had spent time and money on a project to develop this

I know it sounds cheeky but this is how it goes

Sure does sound cheeky i would rather avoid Trademarks and if i owned any i would rather then them contact me.

good luck just gave him a friendly advise the rest its up to him :)[/size]

almaruf07-02-2009 04:16 PM




Thank you both,

One thing that is confusing to me .... I have registered these (Trademark domains like abbank.tel, banglalinkgsm.tel ) during the general availability period. Why would I have any problem with the trademark problem then ??? Thanks for all the help..

[size]

Assume, XYZ.com is a domain that sells shoes and is protected via trademark.
and you bought XYZ.net 

As long as you sell something else other than shoes from that website then you are fine otherwise you will loose the case if the trademark owners file a case.

Regarding your domains
abbank.tel, banglalinkgsm.tel

If you launch the information that pertain to the exact company with all accurate info, then majority of the companies will not bother much as you are providing free advertisement and exposure.
If you put their competitors details then you will be contacted by them to hand over the domain
If you put some irrelevant info then they may contact and ask you to handover the domain for a cost or some nasty companies may say "Give our domain for free, or else wait for the lawyer notice"


This is a complete different discussion that can be addressed by domain related forums. I would suggest you check some domain (market) related forums for more info and case studies.


Hope that helps.[/size]

Shahid07-03-2009 12:20 PM




well said dottel , i think its better to do a case study of what is going on and also how you can avoid them to file a case against you.

Shahid07-03-2009 09:48 PM




Not sure if my .tel is good enough to be part of tel of the week but it can surely make difference in companies online who do multi things

www.netzone.tel 

can be seen for example and i would appreciate if i can hear some words good or bad about it

Thanks

Gav07-04-2009 01:04 AM




Hi shahid.

That is really odd you own that.

I backordered -

Seems we think alike, although I have just left it at the minute, but will promote it soon.

Write to me the personal message if you have ideas on cooperation. And I with pleasure will include the reference to your resource if you awake in section of the catalogue to develop your project.

Question
 
Hello. I wish to ask you, who can will help. Who had an experience of placing of the personal information on yours .tel from other sites. At the first stages for my project supplies.tel I plan to take the information from others b2b portals of a network and to specify the reference to a resource where I took this information. 
On how many it legally also does not break use rights?
Thanks.

almaruf07-05-2009 11:53 PM




Dear all, 
Thanks for your information. I have something more to ask about www.sylhet.tel . This is a city in Bangladesh. I wanted to give access to few companies to access their page and edit it time to time using their own username and password. For example , if ABC is a company enlisted in my directory and if they want to handle their own contact information in www.abc.sylhet.tel , is it possible ? If yes how . For your information I have reserved and updating this domain using domainmonster.com control panel. 

Thanking you in advance.

Hi, thanks for your submission. It certainly looks impressive and thoroughly done. I especially like how all numbers have labels for taxi companies sorted alphabetically. 

A couple of recommendations:
[/size]

  • please use the correct phone number format for all numbers:
    You're doing "+4401832734333" which is wrong - if you follow the international format with country code, you don't need the 0 as in "+441832734333"

  • remove the website linkt to your own .tel as the first link on the page. Why would you need it?

If I am not wrong, this is for posting your .tel url for ".Tel of the week" contest.
I think you should open a separate thread to ask questions in right forum section.

[size]
Free numbers always work online when dialing from inside the country, so enter the phone number as usual and disable the validation check so that you're not requested to add a +. Also add a label to say that it's a free number that can only be dialled while in the US.

As for normal phone numbers, the US country code is +1, so prepend that to any numbers you enter. Then enter the area code and local number. See more detailed info in the wiki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_NANP_area_codes[/size]

sandman07-06-2009 06:05 PM




Thank you.
How do I disable the validation check ?
I am right now in Europe and call 800 numbers in Canada and the US all the time and never had to pay for it (I use Skype)

nadya07-06-2009 06:11 PM




When you create a new contact item or edit an existing one, there's a checkbox 'disable validation check' for SMS and phone numbers.

I am in the telecom industry and often work with consultants that have been hired by a business to lower their telecom bills. I have a large list of these consultants so I made telecomconsultants.tel as a referral service and directory. There are over 250 consultants in the list and thanks to the Telfeeder platform they are all loaded and up to date. I also started a blog that links to the new site.



[size]
That's a good start. My question would be: why are the phone numbers as text, not as contact items? This way, you can't click and call from a mobile or using Skype.[/size]

Gav07-14-2009 02:41 PM




Hi all

I have spent a few hours setting up gretnagreen.tel ready for launch.

I have also built a form where businesses can add there details and make payment.

Going to start the advertising pretty soon.

Please have a look at gretnagreen.tel and let me know what you think.

Regards

Gav

nadya07-14-2009 04:52 PM




I find that Gretna Green project quite a good start. Personal recommendations:

- If you have 'Add a listing', you don't need 'Example listing' as well because (a) you're supposed to have real examples in the categories; (b) if you wish, you can add this as a subfolder to 'Add your listing' so that people know how to get your listing and what it's going to look like

- Your sub-categories, like 'Catering' or 'Beauticians', when you get real listings, they'll be sub-folders, right? So the current content doesn't match what it's going to look like. Instead, make it more real-life so that people will want to see their business clearly there

- When adding a business on your webform, the 'Add to basket' button should be at the bottom; i fill in the form and publish; you also don't need the price specified twice - the top one is redundant and attracts too much attention to the fact it's not free :) 

- When checking out the listing, the data to be entered is all messed up in formatting; I'd like to see my listing similar to what my .tel will be

Hope these help.

www.Travelling.tel
 
Hello Nadya,

I have 1 domain to showcase:

www.Travelling.tel - useful supplemental information about each listed country.

Thank you in advance for your recomendations.:)

Hi Pavel,

Thanks for your submission. It's a great start but you need data to show how it's going to work. 

I'm not sure what 'premium rate email' means. Normally, 'premium rate' is the mandatory label for phone lines and SMS gateways that charge extra. 

From the first glance, the logic of sub-folders is not very clear. Some are generic words like 'Go' or 'Your', 'Sea', 'Visa', while others are country names even though you have 'Countries' as a link as well. You also have 'Agent' and 'Sales' folders at the top, which I'm not sure I understand. 

Think how people are going to use your .tel - from a PC and from a mobile, where would they want to click and what they'd expect to see. Then add sample text to folders so that prospective clients will see how their ads will look like, etc. 

Travelling is an excellent name, if your structure and data are right. Plus, it's an ambitious project placing all the useful info in this domain and enabling companies worldwide to advertise on it.

paulza07-15-2009 12:03 PM




www.travelling.tel
 
Nadya, thank you for your comments. 
I think now the view of my telsite is more understandable.
www.Travelling.tel is a good advertising place for companies which provide different services for tourists in all listed countries. Tours, Hotels, Transport, Tickets, Excursions, Special offers, Emergency phones. etc. 
I have no doubt that this information can be useful for the end users, but It`s a big question how to make this directory interesting for advertisers

nadya07-15-2009 12:44 PM




IMHO, you should stop thinking about attracting advertisers, and start thinking about the usage of your .tel. Make it attractive to users, and advertisers will want to be a part of your solution. 

Currently, all you see is a long list of countries with no apparent order. Create a navigation structure like Going to > America > USA > New York. 

Separate your info from the actual directory info. Create one folder for your contacts and location, and keep the text header in the landing page dedicated to what people get. 

One of the ways to do this would be to think of a checklist or list of questions that people ask themselves when planning their travel, like:

- Where do I want to go? > countries
- What kind of holiday do I want? > family fun, spa, diving, mountains, etc.
- What travel agent to choose? > travel agencies, etc.
- How do I prepare? > visas, emergency contacts, etc. 
- What's on? > special events, festivals, etc
- Hot deals 

Some of these could be commercial, but other links - informative. People tend to dislike websites that are ads only, you've got to have some neutral helpful info as well. 

Talk to other .tel owners - add links to target specialized .tels, exchange experiences.

Howard07-15-2009 01:32 PM




With regards to Nadya's point on linking to other .tel sites, there are sites which specialise in emergency numbers for countries, cancelling credit cards throughout the world, and weather/what's on listings. These could all be valuable resources for visitors to your site.

paulza07-15-2009 01:54 PM




Howard, thank you for your reply. I know about sos1, cancel & bigcity greate resources you are talking about. I agree these telsites could all be valuable resources for visitors to my site, but first It is important to think about the model of providing information with my own resource.

Shahid07-16-2009 10:19 PM




good to know about similar .tel people own, i personally own www.traveling.tel havnt started working on it but one thing these people don't understand is economy being so bad they should think of advertising it themselves and getting people in to take part and also promote it vise versa as they are promoted then looking for advertisers.

anyway good luck to everyone howard still waiting on some of my .tel to be listed on .tel of the week

govv.pl07-23-2009 03:49 PM




kravmaga.tel
 
My first "full" .tel domain was kravmaga.tel 
Website in this domain is about Krav Maga in Poland (Krav Maga is system of fight for security service, army, police etc). On this website you choose interesing city, where you see links to sections, adress and location of sections, e-mail, mobile and phone numbers to instructors. 
kravmaga.tel is more and more popularity - on websites of Krav Maga sections are links to kravmaga.tel

Best regards

Google rankings with .TEL
 
I have achieved success on google with my NailSalon.tel.

popular search terms:

Manicure Sherman Oaks

Pedicure Sherman Oaks

Nail Salon Sherman Oaks

all recieve page one ranking, which is very good for these terms.

Maybe some honorable mention Nadya? Thanks in advance.

Have now got a paid listing ( cove house ), this is how the directory will be, not sure if this is what you mean ?

- When adding a business on your webform, the 'Add to basket' button should be at the bottom; i fill in the form and publish; you also don't need the price specified twice - the top one is redundant and attracts too much attention to the fact it's not free :) 

Most shop options in regards of add to basket and the price are out of my control as these are default settings by the company I use for all my shop facilitys.

- When checking out the listing, the data to be entered is all messed up in formatting; I'd like to see my listing similar to what my .tel will be

I have tried to keep it simple for all paying customers with a secure payment. Not sure what you mean by the formatting all messed up.

I have links to cove house ( example listing ) and also gretnagreen.tel for the customers to see on the shop page so was hoping this would be enough.

Once again very limited to making different changes in my shop section, the rest of the site I can change and alter any thing I like.

Thanks for your thoughts

Hey Mark-

The traffic has been minimal (due to the fact that there are only so many people searching for Nail salon in sherman Oaks) however the salon has been getting a few calls per week. Which is fantastic.[/size]

sandman08-04-2009 06:09 PM




I just completed another project www.europeanferries.tel
Is it any good?

[size]
I think your resource is great, it's simple and quick, and with a definite purpose. My questions are: 
- How do you add more companies? If some ferry company is not covered, what do they do? 
- How are you going to make money out of it?
- Is it really intuitive to have the ferry service names and no countries? I have no idea what companies I can use to go from UK to Spain or Italy. Do you think it makes sense to have an Country navigation tree that leads you to the same companies but in a destination planner way, like "Choose where you are going from: Go to UK" > "Select your destination: Go to Italy" > "Choose your company: Go to ferrycompanynamegoes here".[/size]

sandman08-04-2009 08:31 PM




Good question.
I don't know how to make money with directories.
My hope is that .tel will become popular one day so we all can charge for listing companies in a directory, so for now I will just keep on creating all kinds of directories and list companies for free.
I don't know of anybody making any money from this type of site yet, but hope that our time will come.
As far as the second part of your comment is concerned. Nadya, I think ahead so I also own Europeferries.tel where I will list the same ferry companies by countries.
It should be ready in a few days.

nadya08-04-2009 09:30 PM




Looking forward to your new project, let us know when both domains are ready.

Gav08-05-2009 12:17 PM




Hi 

I think that you can make money from your directories as long as you are willing to market them in the right way so that advertisers will benefit from there listings.

I have now finished the ukcabs.tel and have a team of five people on board to help make this a success.

I have 2 ladies that are going to be on the phones each day calling taxi firms letting them know about our new directory, 2 more people that will will be doing the e-mail marketing and also contacting other organisations that we need to get involved to get the word out and myself ,who at the moment is working on behing the scenes, flyers, posters ect to go with the business.

Im sure that any directory given the right amount of time and effort will be fine and should make some kind of money.

Regards

Gav

[size]
Absolutely right.
As long as we can convince the clients that having their site listed in the directory would benefit them, one can make money out of the directory business.

The advantage will be with the one who start these first & market well
later there would be 1000's of .tel directories

and the upper hand will be those who are first comers and able to market well.
The new comers will be successful but will have to compete with new as well as established directories.[/size]

Nuno08-06-2009 11:28 AM




Hello!

I don't know if my postales.tel is already worthy of being here, but I would like to hear suggestions to make it better...

Thank you!

Nuno

nadya08-06-2009 11:31 AM




Hi Nuno,

Thanks for your submission. One thing I'd recommend is removing a link to your own .tel domain from the page. You don't really need it.

www.Englandhotels.tel ( any comments or suggestion are welcomed ) 

Shahid

nadya09-14-2009 10:13 AM




Hi Shahid,

Thanks for the post, I think the hotels included are well presented, but why have a domain "England Hotels" and start of with Scotland and Wales? That'd be "UK Hotels". 

Plus, I'm sure that there are more than a couple of hotels in Wales - is your domain going to be further developed? Is it for sale or are you going to grow it and turn into a monetization stream? 

Have you talked to any hotels in that listing? I've heard that some city directories collaborate with hotels and other businesses to include their listing free in exchange for additional promotion of the directory through the hotel - brochures in the lobby, the .tel included in stationary, etc.

Gav09-14-2009 08:44 PM




Hi Shahid

I agree you should scrap the scotland and wales section as this would then be a uk hotel directory all you are missing is part of ireland.

Why not see if scotlandhotels.tel ect is available and then you could link them all and cover the uk this way.

Hope you are well, not spoke latley as I have been so busy and just returned home from holiday.

Hello Nadya, 

thank you for ur post as well, i did notice that and talked with the person who built it for me as i don't live in UK but thought it might be good to even add that but i will remove it, its going to grow more with time but for now its listed with top 200 hotels of what could be seen as quality and reliability.

no i have not talked with anyone who are listed they will be mailed or called in the next 1-4 weeks from now and informed about .tel and being listed there

BikeSharing.tel

Find Bike Sharing places, USA, Europe... 
Bike Sharing already exists in cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin, Copenhagen, Toronto, New York...

This is the first and unique of it's kind directory of full Bike sharing worlwide listing contact and infos, very useful for travellers when need to find a green transportation or discover a city while contributing to environmental sustainability, browsing is very convienient when using mobile device and iphone app or blackberry.
This directory could not be found anywhere on the web before bikesharing.tel

nadya09-21-2009 09:22 AM




Thanks for submission, Steveteva. A bike sharing resource would indeed be interesting. Please note that your phone number format is wrong:

+0130797930 for Paris doesn't make any sense. It looks like a local phone number, 01... But it has the + as in international code. If you go for international dialling format that is accepted on all devices, use country codes, like +33130797930.

embassies directory for dot tel of the week
 
I'm submitting for the dot tel of the week: http://agencevoyage.tel which is a french directory of France embassies in the world.

- It's a dot tel to help any French people to prepare a travel to any country from France.

- It's a dot tel to help any French citizen visiting any foreign country to contact his embassy in case of problem.

- It's also a dot tel to help any foreign tourist visiting France to contact his embassy in case of any problem.

These are the reasons why I think that http://agencevoyage.tel can become the next dot tel of theweek.

hot sauce
 
I certainly am not submitting this for the .tel of the week. It is fun when your .tel project is also one of your hobbies. I have a small hot sauce retail site and I am building a directory of other sites at www.hotsauce.tel

I dont expect to make any money with it but if .tel becomes the phonebook of the internet, I will own the top hot sauce directory one day. We shall see.

Very hot site. You should be able to monetize it over time.

Thanks all,
My goal to monetize is to get traffic to my retail site www.blazingbottles.com from traffic hitting the .tel site. I also have a few wine and tourism .tels. 

Wow, how would that be? Run 3 or 4 directories that are based on hot sauce, wine and tourism then get my butt out of the corporate world. I really really want .tel to catch on

boracay.tel09-30-2009 02:24 AM




boracay.tel - tropical island paradise
 
Hello to all.

As a thriving town, small but extremely busy, we have been very proactive in this community, seeking out newly developed condos, resorts, and business asking them to be included in our speedy online directory. our slogan is "find it. FAST" - your island, your contacts.

Boracay.tel is finally taking shape, after getting off to a flying start way back in March 09. But its the recent work from Mark Kolb that has given us renewed interest. the extending of the dottel functionality to include advertising, and an event entry system (he has kindly enabled us to use the current "mytel.me/add" guestbook prior to any commercial offering) for the upcoming season!

Aside from the resorts such as "boracay regency" or "boracay residences", individuals too here like to be known as "boracay bill" or "boracay jack" and with that in mind, we are hopeful that individuals and business will be able to keep contact data updated, by themselves. the private data login "manage your account" is so close to being perfect for that task, ah, yes, but thats for something else :-( 

Visit here holiday makers.

I have a new site myvegas.tel for cosideration.
Also if anyone has a Las Vegas related site I will add it to my directory of Las Vegas sites for free

paulza10-07-2009 07:00 AM




Hi all!
I want to submit for the dot tel of the week my hotel handbook: www.Moscow-Hotels.tel
It has 5, 4, 3 star and Budget sections. You can find short info about, contact information and geolocation of each hotel listed in my directory.

SAblogs.tel
 
SAblogs.tel is a site dedicated to promoting South African blogs.

This is a free service and we are building an Ad network in the background. The Ad network allows us to Give Away Ad impressions to bloggers, thus increasing their visibility.

We are also building our PR at SAblogs.tel, in time will benefit all bloggers within the search results in search engines.

Regards
Gordon

SABlogs.tel
 
Hi Gordon,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for the submission, we've added it to the list of contenders.It's a really interesting concept you have there, and the back end form submission to add blogs looks very smooth.

Did you know that you can now updat the title of .tel pages, so it can now show "SA Blogs", and your subfolder titles can also be more descriptive should you wish?

Have you also considered initially only showing folders that contain blogs? It can be frustrating for a user do drill deep into a subfolder to find it's empty.

All the best with the venture. Do you have any similar .tel projects ongoing?

Howard10-13-2009 10:15 AM




myvegas.tel
 
Hello Marimax,

Thanks for the submission. This has also been added to the list of contenders. 

Have you considered populating some areas of the site with some details, hotels and casinos for example? People could then see the wealth of contact information that can be used and it may encourage establishments to request to be added to your directory.

A well populated .tel directory can bring traffic to the site which will then encourage businesses to want to be featured.

Howard10-13-2009 10:17 AM




Moscow-Hotels.tel
 
Thanks for the submission paulza. A great example of a hotel directory.

Walla Walla Wine
 
With the new labeling in place, I assume we will see a ton of new sites come up. I am humbly offering up my site (www.wallawallawine.tel) as a potential .tel of the week.

Walla Walla is a wine region in SE Washington State. The tourists flock there for the 100 or more tasting rooms in the area. Imagine for a moment that you are driving through the region and want to do a little wine tasting. You go towww.wallawallawine.tel and search through the directory by alpha, varietal, amenities or suggested tours. You click on "Search by Varietal" and choose "Merlot". The list of wineries that offer a Merlot pops up and you click on "Canoe Ridge Vineyard". Now you click on "location" and off you go. Once Telpages is up and running, what winery in the area could pass on being in that directory? I also own wallwalla.tel

Check it out - Any suggestions are very much appreciated.

Howard10-30-2009 05:43 PM




Thanks for the submission Triton NW. I've added it to the list of contenders. Great to see you using the new functionality in there already.

maximka11-15-2009 11:14 PM




I would like to submit to “tel of the week” my project astrological.tel 

This weekly horoscope makes one eastern astrologer. Now you can dial the "astrological.tel" at your phone to know the forecast for your zodiac sign. I think to expand the choice of horoscopes some time later and possibly to introduce translations into German and Spanish (now there are two languages - English & Russian) .


P.S.
My project is built on .tel domain alone and do not use websites of other Internet zones.


.

Howard11-16-2009 10:28 AM




Thanks for the submission maximka. I've added it to the list of contenders. It's an interesting concept. 

Please let us know if you do translate into German and Spanish.

Hello

T1 Quotes
 
Hi all,
I want to introduce www.t1quotes.tel
You will see that this is a very small .tel with almost zero information in it. I own a company that provides on line quotes for voice and data T1 circuits.

t1quotes.tel and t1-quotes.tel are there simply to be seen by search engines and offer a click to my .com platform.

Telpages will be huge for this. We will be the most used T1 quote tool on the web by 2011

Spin on .tel usage
 
I am in the telecom industry and jsut finished a meeting with one of my largest customers. They are a ntaional construction company that builds high rise buildings. In a conversation about my .tel goals we determines that it would be the perfect tool for their projects. For $10.00 they can get "projectname.tel"and it will store all of the hundreds of contacts that are involved in a multi million dollar construction project. All of the site managers carry web enabled telephones so it is perfect.

I have been watching the .tel of the week winners and I am compelled to submit one of mine again. The content is good / not great, but it has a characteristic that most seem to lack. Most of the directory sites are linear. Country...State...City...Service...Listing. The thing about mine that I like the best and was also the hardest to build, is the ability to cross reference different listings. Atwww.wallawallawine.tel a tourist in the Walla Walla valley can go wine tasting with just their mobile device. The main page had alpha listing, varietals and amenities (suggested tours is soon to come) All of the wineries can be searched by these criteria. 

Imagine driving through Walla Wall and you want to find the wineries that make a Cabernet? Click Varietals / Click Cabernet / Click on Winery / Click Location...Done. How about a view or restaurant? You get the point

I am not suggesting that is worthy of .tel of the week but that type of directory searching is going to be huge.

Hi Triton,
Nice site, walla etc, I just checked your site out for research purposes and the thought occurred to me that all those wineries must at some point require labour as well, would it be desirable to have some sort of work available link on there, just a thought.

Cheers
Cees

Triton NW02-12-2010 10:47 PM




Great idea Cees
Since I also own the site for the actual town of Walla Walla, I am thinking that would be a better place for that type of info. I can then keep the wine site as a clean tourist destination for the wine taster

I appreciate the feedback

maximum02-19-2010 07:59 PM




Long time did not win the competition sites from Russia. You should encourage webmasters from Russia. Coming February 23.

I present to your attention the site - http://oskol.tel/.

– City directory for Staryj Oskol, Russian Federation

One day in the life of an ordinary inhabitant of the Staryj Oskol. 

A unique new way of presenting information, which has a high relevance of user requests.

Catalog, which I fill in the first place for himself. It is also considered and implemented all the needs of users of the catalog.

Nice, clean directory...
If you wanted, you could replace the text "Go to" with a description. But you already know that. - Whereas I didn't know, that you could put two lines, there.
Just a pity, that I can't understand most of the text.

And thank you, for visiting all my blogs, it that was you...

On a site aforizm.tel (Russian writing "aphorism") thousand aphorisms in Russian (subdomains too in Russian) are presented. 
The site is an interesting example of placing on dot Tel exclusively text information.

Has Your local Prospective Member of Parliament Got their Dot Tel Yet?? 


Just seen the conservative MP for Anglesey in North Wales has his dot tel and uses it very nicely as an addition to his dot com site. 

Also ranks highly on telpages and is on the front page of a search for conservative. 

If I lived in Anglesey he would probably get my vote!! 

However he gets my vote for this weeks .tel of the week. Please see http://ridge-newman.tel/

IMO all members of parliament should have their own dot tel.

Hi telnic,

I would like to submit www.dubaiworldcup.tel.

Few highlights about the Dubai World Cup:

1- Dubai World Cup is on 27th of March 2010. The world's richest horse racing.
2- The Dubai World Cup is a fashionista's dream. It's the one time of the year that you can don your glad rags and re-live old prom-queen dreams without shame. (source gulf news)
3- Part of the Dubai World Cup Night of races, it has a purse of USD 10 million since 2010, making it the world's richest horse race

For more details on Dubai World Cup, please visit About the Race.

For the latest news on the race, please visit Dubai World Race RSS Feed. Here i would like to thanks JLouis and his company Thetabiz for helping me to set it up.

I will keep my fingers crossed

Thanks for the support. Be well

dialaroom03-25-2010 12:06 PM

How about it Telnic? After the May 6 general election, donate a Dot Tel to every MP who has not got one and set up a basic 1-page site for them.

The cost would be minimal - the PR coup would be fantastic!

Even better I agree - I was just being practical thinking about the number of MPs who are about to become ex-MPs!

The idea of Dot Tel being used by MPs is such a good idea I couldn't resist buying http://UKPolitics.tel - it would make an ideal index to MP's sites.

A bad idea - really?

I was suggesting offering every MP - of all parties - a free tool that would enable their constituents to contact them easily.

Nothing would be expected in return - but naturally people (politicians, party workers, the voting public) would be exposed to the usefullness of Dot Tel.

Sounds pretty good PR on a national scale to me!

Once, before years, I was considering a similar option. Only, that is a significant risk as politicians are in general risky as hell. And of course there is no way they would all agree on that. 

That can also be considered lobbying, so again, it is not the way how to do it. Otherwise so many companies would be donating and donating to all members and every business would be running well due to "PR". But that is not how stuff works.

And God thanks that such nifty tools as TEL domains don't depend of politicians.

tel4rent03-27-2010 09:43 AM




The world's richest horse race is on today. 
Champion horses to feature in Dubai World Cup. It can be argued that this year's $10 million (Dh36.7 million) Dubai World Cup (Gr 1) has attracted the best field in its 15-year history and there are several good reasons to support this boast. (source gulf news)

Enjoy the party!

ArrisDottel03-28-2010 09:46 PM




Re : Tel domains for MP / Prospective MP's

I have done a small amount of research regarding this, it's an area fraught with difficulty. The mp's who hold a parliamentry seat are guided by the director of digital engagement who have the (archaic) opinion that MP's online presence should be limited to .gov.uk sites. 

Prospective Mp's have more freedom over their online presence. They are also a larger group of people and more likely to understand how a .tel domain can be of benefit, although the problem is getting the individual perspective mp's to adopt, understand and use the domain. It can be done - after all Anthony Ridge Newmann has his, but it does need a forward thinking prospective mp who understands modern day communications!! 

It is safe to assume that Telnic management are looking at this channel to see if there can be further adoption of the domain through prospective mp's. 

We can all do a little bit : First Question you ask a perspective MP when they knock on your door? Whats your dot tel? - ( I've never known how to actually get in touch with you). 

It is my understanding that five prospective mp's / Councillors are using .tel. I wonder what that figure will be in the 2014 general election?

JLouisBiz03-28-2010 09:53 PM




That is absolutely true. People will start asking each other for TEL domains. When that arrives, there is too firm foundation for TEL to disappear from any market every again. It will become a new identity for many people.

Anyway, a promotion to those politicians, shall not start on a public forum. That is something which is done in private with carefully thought plan.

ArrisDottel04-12-2010 08:50 PM




Just a quick post to say that I am very impressed with this weeks choice for .tel of the week. Nice that some schools can see the benefits of dot tel. 

Each school has their own dot tel, each is nicely populated and informative, giving contact details for key people within the school. 

Excellent exposure and certainly helps bring .tel to the mainstream in Kent USA. Lets hope schools share best practice!!

dottel.net04-13-2010 12:01 PM




Hi - i would like to submit http://RegentStreet.tel for consideration as Tel of the Week.

There are currently just under 200 stores/services loaded with our aim to continue adding more stores on and around Regent Street. For those outside the UK, Regent Street is a very famous street in London that links Piccadily Circus and Oxford Street. It is home to the famous Hamleys toystore and the annual christmas lights ceremony.

Cheers!

Interested in where to shop in Covent Garden? Where to eat? Theatre? Hotel? You’ll find it all at http://CoventGarden.tel

We're not planning to stop at three.. stay tuned for more

Nadya & Ben went to Covent Garden to buy a Mothers Day gift. After they walked up Regent Street across Oxford Street till they got to Mayfair for a quick drink and a good curry at an Indian Restaurant. The weather according to big city predicted heavy rain & volcanic ash (?) so they had to dial a room. Ops sorry I meant two seperate rooms (phew - just about avoided getting this post deleted and thread locked )

ok coffee break over now back to work - before i lose my entrepreneur license.[/size]

dottel.net05-13-2010 03:30 PM




Anyone fancy a curry tonight?
 
Pub just closed but not sure where you could get a curry?
Don't wander around town like a headless chicken, browse to http://IndianRestaurant.tel on your phone and call ahead to see if your local indian restaurant is open/has a table free!

Currently covering most of the UK will plans to extend to other countries

Enjoy!

Eloquently put.

As web proxy shows the full url was a choice between url with keyword or a short url.
We've opted for urls containing keywords. May change at a later date.
Ideally would be nice to be able to just show the description and make it a link without the need to show the URL but believe telnic have already mentioned their position on showing the full url.[/size]

I think there are so many people who don't realize how often things change, and
if you don't see that, you don't see the value of .tel !

It's like backing up your work in case of a crash, boy do you wish you did it when that happens !

Thank you for the kind words.

What I found so interesting when I put it together were the songs:

They range from 1970 - Present, across different generations/genre, 
yet each represents the same thing at the soul level - the steadfastness of the individual heart in the face of change.

That's exactly what .TEL is about - you, steadfast, no matter what.

[size]

Thank you very much.

He did not read enough and missed the point initially, then figured it out.

I suspect it was related to a design issue that was discussed elsewhere.

Design being an issue of text header not in similar form as note, i.e. white background.

The eyes are immediately drawn to everything but the text header, which sets up the rest.

He read the note alone, missed the point, re-read the messages, got it the second time.

His reaction was simply validation of issues that users will have using the current design.

Hopefully new templates and updates will remedy.

Thanks again for the positive comments.

DialaCab.tel
 
Unashamedly plugging my new directory venture DialaCab.tel UK Taxi / Private Hire directory as a potential tel of the week. 

Dialaroom.tel is progressing slowly and more than paying for itself with subscriptions and affiliate payments, thought it needed a little brother, for linking to and from so have populated DialaCab.tel with every town or city in the UK. (about a thousand)

With Taxi Companies only needing Name and Telephone number, in the right town or city, using the description field of the Phone field as the company name, each one does not require its own folder, so the 3,000 folder limit only has to cope with the Towns and Cities, and with about one thousand of these in the UK, that's potentially 300 listings per town or city, or 300,000 listings are possible, using just one .tel at a fiver each a year. 

I hope everyone would agree that a directory containing 300,000 taxi numbers from all over the UK, would be useful on a .tel, bookmarked on your mobile phone. Even better when I can afford to have the App written.

And the reason I tried to get it all on one .tel, (apart from cost) - the search this tel feature really comes into it's own, just type in a town and viola! choose your cab company, one click and your dialing.

I have not advertised the site yet, been busy populating it. Going to advertise first listing in every town is free. Have set up simple payment page on web based site using css from my .tel and 1st listing free link on every town, (which I'll remove when the free listing live)

So now I need publicity, making me tel of the week would be great, any week will do, Blog mentions, would be good, backlinks would be great, or if your feeling really benevolent, a Nationwide 30 second, television ad wouldn't go amiss. 

I still have a lot of planning, before I start to market it in earnest, I have a lot of ideas, sms marketing, pay by mobile, advertising banners in cabs, mass mailouts, and I have an advertising partner I'm talking to. Anyway, hope you find the project of interest, positive suggestions more than welcome.

P.S. Thanks to Mark's bulk tools for saving me a lot of time.

Interesting use of .tels Mac.concierge will securitytheater.tel change its news and links often so that interested people come back to check latest security theater discussion.

billofrights.tel has a link to myrights.tel with backlinks to the data on billofrights.tel, whats the thinking behind that?

Always wondered exactly what the fifth amendment said, I reckon it could be a whole .tel of its own "fifthamendment.tel" is suprisingly still available.

Cees11-30-2010 07:53 PM

You could register "bill-of-frights.tel" too would seem to mash quiet well with securitytheater.tel, BTW since were talking security you may want to register "securitytheatre.tel" as well.

[size]
Hi Dottel.net,

Forwarding http://mikeseaton.com to http://mikeseaton.tel rather than http://twitter.com/mikeseaton might bump uphttp://mikeseaton.tel a bit - but with 2xP1 and 2xP4 in the major search engines I'm happy to leave it as is and lethttp://twitter.com/mikeseaton receive any additional link juice and traffic.

If you look at http://twitter.com/mikeseaton you will see that on most pages there is a "Web" link to http://mikeseaton.tel - sohttp://mikeseaton.tel does gain both link juice and traffic from http://twitter.com/mikeseaton

The great thing about using http://twitter.com in conjunction with your .tel is it's absolutely free and you can post promo-tweets as long as you don't overdo it!

Watch out later today on http://twitter.com/mikeseaton for a post re the sale of http://Domains123.tel - or subscribe to my Twitter feed http://twitter.com/statuses/user_timeline/14434948.rss/

I really would recommend Dot Tel entrepreneurs, users and domain resellers to sign up to Twitter - here's my Twitter list called "dottel" showing the tweets of some who already have - http://twitter.com/mikeseaton/dottel

I would like to submit for the next week competition my enamel_tel - the directory dedicated to the art of enameling and cloisonne. As enamel is one of visual arts, I wanted this directory to be nice for eyes, so I put there a lot of avatars/pictures.

This my TEL now stands enough well in the search engines ratings: for the search made from my country at the moment Bing shows it on the 5th place for the search-word "enamel". I think that now this my project can be a good illustration for people who hesitate about virtues of TEL technology.

Of course, that 5th position is only for the current moment of time. Today I added some new information to this TEL, so it can again change its position in Bing's and other search engines ratings.

P.S. 
For a search "Enamel art" today it is on 28th position at Google - enough good, I would say, for a website in which I had invested only $22 totally (registration of it and its renewing).

Do you have any constructive comments about: http://socialnetworkpages.tel
To my knowledge it is the most comprehensive directory or list of social networks on the Internet (more than wikipedia, dmoz, etc.)
In the past I remember discussions about how to popularize and help .tel go viral. Is Telnic trying to use social network sites to spread the word about .tel? Any ideas or feedback on this ? Nadya, would you like to make this a .tel of the week- maybe it will help to spread the word about .tel to the billions of people using social networking sites? While it might not be a typical use of .tels, some people might find the information useful or interesting....
Also interesting blog posting from Telnic about social networking and .tel: http://www.telnic.org/blog/2011/01/1...gating-change/

[size]
Good one..
But i think if you optimise the presentation that would be great.
I mean make it look like a light weight website, at present it gives an impression like there is too much to read..

You can categorise further..I know the problem with too many categories - that is it becomes too much to navigate to find the information. But I am pretty sure that if you work on it you can optimise on presentation side.

Secondly, include trust worthy and active networks. Site like bloggerden.com is not really an active site, if you check their homepage the post/stories are 4 to 16 days old. It's like quality vs. quantity



hope this helps[/size]

stel03-11-2011 06:11 PM




Thanks for your feedback Dottel- very helpful. Bloggerden will be out soon. The directory is meant to be a decent starting point for people interested in niche social networks- it is not straighforward for me to assess the quality of the sites. A lot of them will turn out to be junk that will not survive the test of time, but some of them might serve individual needs well. A rating system in the future from Telnic regarding quality of links or other cotact points (and of .tel sites/folders) might or might not make things easy in this respect in the future- I don't know if Telnic has any plans in this respect. 

Regarding more categories- I had more categories and then I started actually combining them- I think that if you have an Android or an iPhone, directories with many categories are easier to navigate then if you have a Blackberry like me or other slower devices. Great feedback nevertheless....

nadya03-14-2011 06:33 PM




Stel, thanks for your submission, it's definitely an interesting resource. You can add http://vkontakte.ru/ to Russian social networks, it's a major one, maybe bigger than the one you have.

stel03-15-2011 04:17 AM




Thanks Nadya. I added vkontakte to the directory. The immediate goal is to put in the links to the top 1000 social networks, which should be done by next week...

dutchstreetdog05-07-2011 12:15 AM




Nice domain!
 
Nice, no better said ,beutifeul!
I love proverbs ! Good idear!
But i would put the freetext discription 
"The website Proverbs in English is introduced popular wisdom of various peoples of the world, listed by themes.
The site is convenient to look through due mobile phone, so you can read the proverbs at a travel or at a party." 
in the header!
To have it lead in!
THE discription shoud bey at the top And not at the bottum but then you are short of carecters (onley 250)
And in the freetext at the bottum, keywords!
Telnic should chanche the header description in to 2000 carecters And the keywords at the bottum ad 250 carecters instead of vica 
Verca 
Or even better give the header also 2000 carecters 
For putting a good introduction 250 carecters is not much So what stays is the freetext at the bottum but there dont belong the introduction!

Lovely domain !!!!!!!

dutchstreetdog05-07-2011 12:34 AM




O i talk to much i didnt see what kind of tread this was

It seemed logical that these sites may be combined into one site.

The simplest method is to copy and paste it from someone else whose already using the symbol. If you use Windows and want the longer version that gives you LOTS of symbols based on Unicode let me know and I'll post the step-by-step process for you.

Yes, Congratulations DirectoryDan!! Catalina.tel is excellent, a well deserved Tel of the Week.

DirectoryDan07-22-2011 09:01 PM




Thank you both!!

tel4rent -- the "_" comes before "a" when listed alphabetically and thus keeps those first-level structural and admin directories at the top of the directory list in CTH rather than being mixed in with the dedicated, SEO-optimized, business listing pages. I don't believe that these structural pages add much to SEO, someone correct me if I'm wrong. I only do this for the child sub-domains of catalina.tel due to the high quantity.

tel4rent -- the "_" comes before "a" when listed alphabetically and thus keeps those first-level structural and admin directories at the top of the directory list in CTH rather than being mixed in with the dedicated, SEO-optimized, business listing pages. I don't believe that these structural pages add much to SEO, someone correct me if I'm wrong. I only do this for the child sub-domains of catalina.tel due to the high quantity. Sub-domains of these sub-domains receive regular a-z names.

Also, how did you insert the copyright symbol if you don't mind sharing?

Boyet -- Just what I DON'T need to hear!! AUGH!! Very curious because underscores are very common in filenames. Maybe it's because its the first character.

Does anyone else have any problems accessing directories starting with (or containing) the underscore? Please mention what you're using to view the site.

Aled, any input on this one?[/size]

dialaroom07-23-2011 11:46 AM




Matt Cutts from google has said in the past that Google tends to treat the underscore as a character so a search for activities catalina will not return _activities.catalina. only searching for _activities catalina will do that. Not sure quite how true that is today, as it was a while back.

It does however treat dash as a space so would return activities.catalina in results, this might not be the answer to the iPad problem, but I'd be tempted to change them if I were you, if only for the search benefits.

dialaroom and Boracay.tel,

Well... my weekend was a lot of fun, grrr. I learned much more about dashes, underscores, and spaces in file paths than the average person should have to endure!

Bottom line is that Google now treats underlines, dashes, and spaces in file paths the same, as a space. As Dialaroom mentioned, Matt Cutts of Google supposedly once said that underscores would be indexed as a separate character, not a space. Apparently someone misquoted Matt and the underscore is treated as a space. BUT, you all know what often happens to extra spaces at the beginning or end of a string of data... they get deleted... sometimes.

Sooooo... now I have Google links going to directories that don't exist because the underscore got translated to a space and the space at the start of the string got trimmed off as insignificant.

My solution... I just dropped all the underscores and now I match most of my already indexed pages in Google. I think I got lucky but we'll see. I'm sure there will be some "File Not Found" errors for awhile.

Thanks for tipping my of to this problem, Boracay.tel! I'll be interested to see what happens to my traffic and my Google rankings once this hiccup works its way through.

That's a fun weekend. No problem Dan. The Google and .tel dance. I'm still paying the penalty more than 2 years later for getting all my keyword.boracay.tels into google before I had enough differentiating data on them. All banned. Ouch! not entirely my fault, just paving the way, and had some unbelievable high ranks....until crash all wiped. Arghh what fun. Mark had something similar happen. but the .tel as a directory is great. So easy to maintain. It's like the database in the cloud (that you never need to fuss over)

I just got a really fast new laptop. The CTH is ok now.
Love to see the new templates, or have Henri let us pass our own template to the proxy.
Bit silent on all fronts. Sigh[/size]

marimax09-01-2011 10:06 PM




Nice work but the only part of it I don't like is the amount of money you charge for listing.
In my opinion it should be at least 10 GBP.
Charging only a fiver you show them how desperate you are
Even at ten GBP it's a great bargain.
You have so many domains and if you keep developing them sooner or later you will have to hire someone to help you and if you get to this point you will have to increase the amount of money you charge them to pay your helper and they will not like it
Ten GBP per year is nothing it is less than buying one coffee per month

[size]
Congrats, I'm surprised you haven't been there before with at least one of your excellent .tels

BTW Marimax (previous post) probably has a valid point RE the pricing.[/size]

dialaroom09-02-2011 08:10 AM




Thanks again gentlemen, or at least I believe you're all gentlemen: are there any lady .tellers?

On the point of charges, unlike my other directories which charge more, Snaith.tel is £25 per year, but does give you a root level url for your money e.g. BertthePlumber.Snaith.tel. Taxinumbers gives you just one record (a phone record) for your fiver.

That means Snaith .tel has a potential 3,000 folders @ £25, whereas Taxinumbers.tel has 300,000 records available @ £5 each. That's ...hmm... a lot of money a year, for a £10 .tel. It takes me 2 minutes to add a record and 20 or so to design a full page with images.

But the main reason was that Taxi Driver is Cockney rhyming slang for a fiver:)

p.s. yes i know there are only about 70,000 taxi companies in the UK, but that's still a lot of TaxiDrivers.

marimax09-02-2011 04:28 PM




I still think it is a bad idea.
As they say You get what you pay for. If I had a taxi company in the UK I would not list it with you because it looks suspicious. For the same reason I don't buy chinese shoes for 10 GBP

Blunderer09-02-2011 08:29 PM




I was given the name of a well known, and respected, directory listing sales person. They thought that .tel was a brilliant idea; grasping the concept, and ease of operation, immediately, and saying that they were absolutely certain that they could sell listings to businesses on the High Street.

They charged £100 per day + expenses, and they would want another sales person to join them (apparently meeting your mate for coffee, lunch, etc. enables the comparing of notes, and is motivating!).

Do the sums folks.

Serg09-03-2011 06:40 PM

Product Advertising API

The Product Advertising API provides programmatic access to Amazon’s product selection and discovery functionality so that developers like you can advertise Amazon products to monetize your website. 

The Product Advertising API helps you advertise Amazon products using product search and look up capability, product information and features such as Customer Reviews, Similar Products, Wish Lists and New and Used listings. You can make money using the Product Advertising API to advertise Amazon products in conjunction with the Amazon Associates program. Be sure to join the Amazon Associates program to earn up to 15% in referral fees when the users you refer to Amazon sites buy qualifying products.

As part of our continued effort to ensure that Product Advertising API is an efficient and effective advertising tool, we’ve identified opportunities to streamline the API. Certain operations and response groups currently supported are infrequently used or are not aligned with the primary purpose of the Product Advertising API, which is to enable Associates to make money by advertising Amazon products in their websites and applications and sending traffic back to Amazon. 

The changes, described below, will help us continue to provide you with relevant and useful features to advertise Amazon products. The following changes to the API will take effect on October 26, 2011: 
Associate Tag will be a required and verified input parameter in all requests to the API
SellerLookup, SellerListingLookup and SellerListingSearch operations will no longer be supported by the API
ItemPage parameter will be limited to a maximum of 10 pages for ItemSearch results
MerchantId parameter will no longer be supported for filtering offers, variations and search results
Data returned by the Offers and ItemAttributes response groups will be limited to the most frequently used attributes
The new Product Advertising API interface definition (WSDL) is now available.While your application may continue to operate after October 26, 2011 using older WSDLs, we will stop supporting all previous versions on February 22, 2012. Please upgrade to the latest WSDL before that date to ensure the continued operation of your application. 

For more details about these changes, please click here.

Access Amazon Product Selection: The Product Advertising API gives you access to Amazon’s selection of millions of products in categories such as books, music, digital downloads and electronics from Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Amazon.fr, and Amazon.jp.
Leverage Amazon Product Discovery capabilities: The Product Advertising API lets you leverage Amazon’s customer-centric features such as Product Search, Customer Reviews, Similar Products, Accessories, Listmania Lists and more.
Monetize your website: The Product Advertising API allows you to include your associate tag in API requests to automatically format the URLs returned by the API to ensure that you earn referral fees when users you refer to Amazon sites buy qualifying products.

Hi Mark I think it's a new API services from last month this is the information from my account, that information I got from my amazon account, hope it will help you with ypur question.

I'm all by manually.
If you make an unattended installation with the availability of the goods - it's great!
The further development - you can make the advertising service (when the site owner does not communicate with the Amazon - this is serious business.)

In Russia Adsense without explanation of the reasons many banned, so the affiliate program is a good alternative.[/size]

www.crediton.tel - .tel of the week
 
I submit www.crediton.tel for consideration as .tel of the week.

Earnings for this will be £780 (we have the orders to load) but I expect to reach my target of £1,000 over the next month.

Three of the subscribers used my input portal but all others are as a result of orders taken over the phone.

Promotion is by word of mouth and by distribution of simple business cards via the subscribers - one side white board with

Find us on

[size=32]www.crediton.tel


Designed for mobiles

£28 per thousand at Staples (local instant printers - cheaper if bought in bulk).

It took my wife three days to secure the orders. She had no previous experience, and I was very pleased because I enjoyed three days of not being nagged.

Loading the site is the thing that takes the time (if you only use two fingers like me).

Feedback is very positive - people like the clear presentation and the ability to scroll down and click with one finger/thumb. They like the fact that it's local and that they do not compete with businesses outside of the immediate area, which is determined by the catchment of the local secondary (high) school. In this way, most users have a recognisable focal point. This helps to spread the word.

I'm preparing www.tiverton.tel now for selling next week. - watch this space.[/size]

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)04-17-2012 01:36 AM

Blunderer good luck with your sites. 
I have taken boracay.tel offline by changing registrars (edit now put back as expecting new look templates were to already be here in first quarter) ...but have turned off search completely because It shows me to be incompetent and embarrassing to have my mobile search results being returned from somebody else's .tel

I'd love a $1000 a month, but with boracay.tel mobile ridiculous search results, its costing me a lot more in trying to explain it.
How do you explain the crazy mobile search results to your paying clients?

Well, it all depends on how you design (technically & cosmetically) a mobile website.
Today with HTML5 and JS libraries, you can create fast loading mobile sites to work in the 3.75G & 4G environments.

The future search (local or global) lies in the mobiles/tablets. Not in the desktop/notebook.

But, I still prefer .tel, for Niche Directories, for obvious/various other reasons.
.tel is a better mobile companion (Will definitely be the best once the TelPages search is sorted out).

WHAT? Let a woman with two heads loose on the general public? 

What happened was.....she kicked the door of my shed open one day and politely asked me what I had been doing for the past three years.

I explained that it was all very technical, that the whole .tel thing was a seething mass of development and innovation, people in smoke filled rooms were working on a global strategy, and that we were all waiting for the miracle cure - due any day!

"HAH!" she said......."leave it to me".


With that, she stomped off into the house, returning two hours later with some pages bitten from a lined A4 pad, threw them on my desk and said "there's twenty orders, get on with it".

So, twenty phone calls in about two hours - 5 minutes a call - half of that agreeing the details of the display.

The sales pitch is more or less the text from our main site www.quicklookmedia.com - with the emphasis on local and mobile (she may have mentioned broken legs and concrete overcoats as well ;))

Being serious, she focussed on businesses that can benefit from better mobile contactability - inbound from customers or B2B outbound. The florist in the high street can benefit; no one phones a supermarket. Local builders use mobiles to stay in touch with customers and local suppliers when they are on site, etc. (only basic, cheap phone models - they don't last long on building sites). So, in general, focus on trades and services and forget the high street - everyone knows where that is and who is there.

Doctors and schools are funded from taxes - no point in adding to my tax bill by charging them - but lots of people use their phone to contact them 'so free inclusion is good for publicity.

The point to emphasise is that this is a LOCAL site, and everyone likes the SIMPLICITY of .tel. They don't really like adverts popping up all over the place when they are focussed on finding a specific item of information, particularly if the adverts are from competitors to local businesses. They all know they can use Google, and get search results from any business that has put the same search terms on their site. Decide whether you want to make your money from paid subscription or, from ppc advertising. There is scope to introduce affiliate links for items which are not locally available.

Simple scroll to connect, backed up by TelPages keyword search is the point to push. Save the site to favourites (and mobile homepage if the phone can do that), and the customer can forget about search engines and results dictated by paid promotion. 

Concentrating on TelPages also channels users to all other .tel sites, and since we all hold generic/keyword/geo domains, we are not competing against each other 'so can all benefit.

I have invited sponsorship but will only consider displays which do not conflict with existing customers.

There is no doubt that some customers in Crediton were influenced by www.chagford.tel . Being able to see a working site, near the town we were selling, was a help, but if anyone wants to follow my model then I don't mind if they use my sites as an example.

Doing it our way is labour intensive, and it does not raise the value of a geo domain (I think about £40) but 3-4 years down the line things may be different.


Finally, Mark, thank you for your kind words about www.nationalartandcraft.com - another low cost site aimed specifically at supporting and promoting the professional art and craft industry. We launched it last year and have been pleased with the use it's getting. Anyone can register as a user (see Benefits and Costs tab at the top) and chose to receive email alerts when new items are added.


Kind regards,

Roy

I have taken boracay.tel offline (a few months and counting) until the mobile search this.tel is fixed.
It is incompetent and embarrassing to have mobile search results being returned from somebody else's .tel

I'd love a $1000 a month, but the incompetence projected with ridiculous search results is costing me a lot more

How do you explain the crazy search results to your paying clients?



[size]

I'm aiming for £1000 per week/site - population speed is my inhibiting factor. For further sites I perhaps need to trim the content, and oil my fingers!

Regarding search - the reason I've laid the sites out this way is because people don't have to rely on search to find things, and I'm not competing with search engines - I intend to cut them out of the loop. I want everyone to know that adding .tel to the name of a town will provide them with clear, useful, scroll and click results.[/size]

Nice to hear your success story.
Concentrate more on the mobile side of the .tel. You will be alright then.

All the best.

@blunderer - great story, shows what a bit of hard graft can do with a simple and clear message.

dialaroom04-17-2012 02:56 PM




@blunderer - great story - could partly explain why my wifeproofsheds .tel site is empty. 

My wife is convinced Telnic.org is a cover for a gentlemen only site. Saying that, it probably is, are there any female forum members hiding behind an alias?

Blunderer04-17-2012 03:05 PM




Tip of the day:

Don't buy your wife slippers for her birthday, buy her clogs. Then you can hear her when she creeps up behind you and reads your screen over your shoulder.

With our email support contacts through TELcp, we are aware that there are quite a few business women involved in developing .tel directories. I don't hear them in this forum, unless they use different usernames.

@Dottel,

Thank you. Have you had any success on a single geo site basis through your efforts?

Mark Kolb (Kprobe)04-17-2012 04:26 PM




@Blunderer you are my new hero. I've been developing code and sites more than attracting business to these domains. You've given me more incentive now to "hit the phone".

Get your wife/mistress/woman you met in the street to do it (unless you're a silver tongued devil). We are all too close to the coalface, and may tend to be too intense, and a woman calling seems to be taken as non-threatening and more acceptable.

My wife has less knowledge of computers/web/.tel/IT/mobile than me (gasps of amazement) but she just went over these few basics with me and then presented them to the people she called, in the way that felt most appropriate at the time. After a few calls she developed a script, based on the response she had received. She genuinely did take twenty orders in the first two hours. 

If you have to do it yourself, just stick to local, growing mobile use, quick = cheaper mobile search bills, and in my case, no competition from ppc ads., and don't forget scroll and click to connect, but nothing technical.

If asked for an explanation of the way it works we say imagine going to the local library for a book:

Web:

Request - town library - state library - national library - other state library - other town library - book

.tel:

Request - town library - national library - book

No one knows what DNS means but they can understand that .tel is effectively a shortcut to information.

You will have the advantage of being able to load them more quickly than me. 

We agree the basic contact info required, and keywords/text over the phone. If the customer has a website I dive in and maybe paraphrase a bit of their text, or copy some (never more than the input box limit). I also try and find a logo/image from their site.

Billing is through PayPal email or manual invoice, and payment 50/25/25 PayPal/internet or telephone transfer/cheque. Only three businesses have used the input and payment link on my website. The businesses can't be bothered, which is why I am sceptical about selling .tels to them - at least in the next five or six years. when high speed 4G mobile is widespread.

OK, I'll go and put another electrician on Kirton (Devonshire for Crediton).

One last thing, I try and cross check all my map pins using Google street view. They do like an accurate map = added value.[/size]

we have had very good success with a number of our geo tel's. good solid traffic and revenue streams so can't complain. that's the reason we're always buying and swaping some of our names for others that fit our strategy.

as i've always said, .tel works if you use it as intended. granted we could do with bells and whistles to take it to the next level and grow further - lets see if 2012 brings this :)[/size]

dottel.net04-17-2012 07:28 PM




@blunderer some very key facts that totally resonate and synch with what we've seen.....

this quote, deserves a double mention:
.... and don't forget nothing technical.

businesses couldn't care less about dns, etc, etc

one difference with what we've seen is virtually all our orders are via online payments through our web forms. appears people are finding our tels, seeing the self service links and adding themselves + paying.

Blunderer,
Great work, are you trying to dethrone DutchStreetDog in the comedy stakes, very informative and funny, Thanks, BTW if anyone wants clogs, let me know I know someone in Cooma:)

Geo04-18-2012 08:17 AM




@Blunderer... 

Very impressive and inspirational... your wife I mean - just kidding. 

But seriously, your story is exactly what I needed to hear. I have a bunch of local geos, and sometimes it takes a person like your wife to discover the potential that's out there. Anyways, this could very well be a game changer for me.

Thanks,

Geo

It is ridiculous bodies choices giantpanda.tel week
that it interesting? background? - Which is not available for installation Most of users.
Strange telnic understands its mission and the meaning of the definition of sites.

telrific05-07-2012 07:14 AM




Haven't been many personal .tel's of the week.

van.tel is updated, so, submitting for consideration.

The "old" style still has great value over the telnames, so something to throw in the hat.


Alex06-06-2012 11:31 PM




Telnic has canceled the roadmap, the public access to the .tel forum, the monthly newsletter and all press releases.
Here is the next victim dedicated to reduced activity:
This week no .tel of the week has been published (what happens usually on Tuesday)!
Or perhaps just an inadvertence caused by lack of public interest?

dottel.net06-06-2012 11:36 PM




Alex - sounds like your enthusiasm for .tel was shortlived

its not the first time a tel of the week was missed. you'll find this week was due to the jubilee bank holiday 4 day weekend in the UK. Am sure there will be a tel of the week next tuesday

This has happened before on "holiday" affected week, no worries.

I believe the last one was the Royal Wedding.

@Mark. I now have many websites in Russian so the links are not an acute problem although the quality is always needed. To get to the "tel of the week" I have a ghost, just do not see a more appropriate topic to share their experiences.[/size]
