Is .tel not the fastest and easiest way to create a mobile friendly website?

Why do the changes at Google not affect the registration numbers for .tel?

No, .tel doesn't provide a (proper) website!

1. No one knows .tel.
2. The publication of only phone numbers doesn't replace a website presence.

@ixida - the short answer to your question is:

Joe Public - and the staff of mobile phone shops - don't know about the existence of .TEL !

One more observation.

Having Separate URLs for your desktop and mobile sites (e.g. .COM & .TEL or maybe .COM & .MOBI) is NOT what turns Google on !

See Select your mobile configuration - it's Responsive Web Design that Google recommends.

A very important point - and a big disadvantage of .tel!
.tel has no other chance to survive than providing a complete solution for a desktop and mobile website (with many more options than today).
It's so important to develop .tel fast.
Meanwhile Telnic is doing absolutely nothing!!!

 It might not turn Google on, but Google isn't complaining. Check out one of our local sites for The University of the Third Age  http://www.lostwithielu3a.org.uk  using https://www.google.co.uk/webmasters/tools/mobile-friendly/   and see what you get.

What about the ease of use? Isn't it best to administer one website with one URL?

If you want to use .tel, you need 4 (!) providers to create a homepage:

  • A traditional domain like .com for your desktop website.
  • A hosting service for your .com website.
  • A domain from Telnic or Telnames for your mobile website.
  • A third party service to upload pictures to your .tel.

Yes it is probably  best to administer one website with one url.

However if you already have an old non-responsive website it is a lot easier, cheaper, and quicker to add some script  at the top of the page to redirect to a dottel,   rather than build a new responsive site.

BTW - 
Has anybody noticed any sites being downgraded yet in Google because they don't have mobile versions of sites?

@FrankW 

Thanks for link.

I have seen lots of stories about what was going to happen,  but my question was  has anybody seen anything happen yet?

For example see  http://searchengineland.com/did-google-really-start-rolling-out-the-mobile-friendly-algorithm-yesterday-219549

Why Telnic doesn't simply develop a complete control panel for a desktop plus mobile website? Only a few things like blog text plus the Telnames design would be necessary.

How long can it take? 1 or 2 days?

You've to understand Telnic's business philosophy!
Telnic's target isn't product development nor increase of sales figures.
Instead Telnic's target is collecting fast and easy money from shareholders and domain registrants without any effort.

Yes, that's the point! Many people are wondering why Telnic gets so many complaints.

But it's obvious to see that Telnic isn't interested in reliable business operations!

The effect on Google after the 21st April is very good.
A lot of websites are losing good rankings.
That gives .tel a big competitive advantage.
.tel domains get good rankings easily on cell phones.
They are mobile-friendly by default.

I've discovered another advantage of .tel domains: Safari shows for them "Reader View Available" in the address bar on an iPhone for switching to text only.



Nice!

Unblieveable!

I've just created a .tel website and added it here: https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url

One the same day it appears on page one at position two inside the Google SERP! I'm impressed.
