How is that possible? Is no one interested in undetectable websites anymore?
Prefer people instead websites that can be found on the Internet now (.com or .co.uk)?

I'm not sure what the worse sign is: that Telnames never sold a decent number of domains or that even these few customers are leaving quickly.

Too bad people continue to spend million$ and refuse to realize that .tel = profile page = directory listing.

No REAL Telnames Search Engine = No REAL Telnames Registrations.

Still ... duh.

Last month the stats still showed 11,000 registered domains at Telnames.
This is another evidence that most costumers are dropping their Telnames after the first year due to low visitor numbers. As long Telnic isn't able to bring enough visitors to .tel domains, end users won't have any reasons to renew them.

This is the big, big problem of .tel! But Telnic has never done anything against it!

I've renewed telnames because they are an easy website to update with the iPhone app. Very very straightforward. However, for what it's worth (Offensive comment removed) I will concede from my own experience that a telname (on it's own merits) has poor rank on google, this may be partly a time factor as they are only a year or so registered

But that is not the end of things, you can register a matching subdomain .tel and fill it up. power user it through a fairly reasonable control panel, then redirect the very top layer to a telnames. But you know that already.

So, in combination (Offensive comment removed) a .tel solution is actually really worthwhile.

There appears no posters left here that support .tel, so I'll make this my last post and move along.

I don't want to fight your opinion, but I've to correct your wrong expectations.
A website doesn't perform well on a search engine because of its age; it performs well because of its relevant content.
A .tel domain doesn't provide much of that.
If Telnic don't want to improve SEO for .tel domains, than it has to create another resource to display .tel domains on popular places.
Telnic tried this with the Telnames Partner Network, but this plan has failed, too:

Pushing domains up in search engine results with only SEO doesn't work in the long run.
Search engine always prefer domains with valuable content over domains that are only search engine optimized.
Especially all future ambitions of search engines are focused on punishing domains that are only search engine optimized but doesn't provide good content for the visitor.
All effort I see for .tel is past-oriented!

Good luck finding another platform where people are talking nicely about .tel / Telnic. I'm sure something good would be reported if something good to report exists (here or somewhere else)!

Search Engine = Visitors

.tel = profile page = directory listing.

No REAL Telnames Search Engine = No REAL Telnames Registrations.

Strange! The more unsuccessful the business runs, the more inactive Telnic / Telnames becomes. Meanwhile we've reached the lowest possible level; not the slightest sign of activity anymore!

IMO this is the most accurate measure of Telnames "success" - those indexed by Google - though today's 5,770 value obviously includes a certain number of Telnames containing only the minimum content automatically generated on registration.
