top & bottom image ads - a request to increase

Post by TELcp on Wed 03 Oct 2012, 3:23 am

We made a request to Telnic today to increase image ad capacity.

QUOTE:

Dear Telnic,

Would you mind increasing the number of .tia image ads (on top & bottom) allowed per page?

At present it is set by default as follows.
Desktop top 448 x 60 - 1
Desktop bottom 448x60 - 2
Smartphone top 300x50 - 1
Smartphone bottom 300x50 - 2

Our humble request is to increase the number up to 20 .tia ads per page
(10 on top & 10 on bottom for both desktop & mobile proxies),
still maintaining the current maximum number of records per page (100).

We are not asking something new*** or additional to what is available now.
Only a request to re-arrange current allocation limits per different types of records per page.
A banner ad with a callto: link will be more attractive (communicates better) to the visitor than a icon.


*** - because we are aware that Telnic has other priorities too.

Thank you.

Very reasonable request and much more specific than most requests on this forum.
If we would get a few more ads per page, it would help domain developers a lot to fill their .tels with important content.

Copied my Telnic thread here...

Actually, I see the need for this, and can use it. 20 sounds like too much to most but it actually makes sense, because it is the only way to add visual elements to a .tel. But the caveat is to create sensible, appealing images that conform to the existing templates. If you use common sense in the content for these images, you can actually improve the pro .tel immensely esp on mobile. Don't use to dump affiliate images all over the place. Instead create images that don't burden the viewer, eg text images and mixture of text and icon. Ones that fit the Telnic style.

So where you now have just a stock telnic icon with anchor text and link, or phone number, you can replace with ...



Telnic, this would be a fabulous implementation.

Also still need in-page linking for image ads that point to the same .tel domain - dont open a new window.

There is discussion going on at Telnic Forum regarding this topic.
If anyone is interested in getting this kind of features implemented, do please show us your support/comments there.

Thanks

Telnic won't increase the number of pictures on a .tel. Here the response from today:
Thank you for your suggestion. As some have pointed out earlier in this conversation, there are a number of issues with this modification which we believe makes this change request unsatisfactory for the community at large and for the .tel platform. As this is an ad space, it will be blocked by certain browsers and settings, making it unsuitable for providing critical information to visitors. We do not believe that increasing usage of this space or the number of units per page will benefit the ability to re-sell space on .tel domains, will impact on the load time and weight of the .tel page as a whole and will not be a pleasing experience on a mobile device or other clients that support .tel domains. By using such space for phone and email addresses you are also weakening the consistency of the DNS storage structure with regards to how phone numbers and email addresses can be identified by any consumer other than the proxy.

Additionally, contacts as images aren't going to be indexed by Google/Bing etc so the change would also have a likely negative effect on the indexing of the .tel domains using such ads. Finally, with two divergent views on what the usage actually is for, we anticipate that it would quickly be filled up with content that would not be conducive to the vision of the .tel.

We are happy to consider investing in modifications to templates that will drive benefit for the community and a better experience for both visitors and potential users of the services you provide. However, in this instance, due to the above reasons, we do not see this as a modification that meets any of these requirements.

It's not a good sign if we cannot even get more than only one big picture on only one from eight templates - the one used at http://justin.tel

448x60 ?

When the industry standard is 468x60 ?

I thought that 20 pixel discrepancy had been sorted out a long time ago ?

468x60 is current, was fixed a while back
issue now is the 468x60 is IAB standard for an ad, which might be the trigger for ad blockers.
having a larger image like template 8 for all would be ideal solution

AGREED !

PS. But I know it's NOT going to happen - development of Telnic .tels to increase the reason why users would register them instead of Telnames .tels is off the agenda !
