LONDON, April 14 /CNW/ - Telnic Limited (http://telnic.tel), the registry operator for the .tel top level domain (TLD) today
announced that Turkey Yellow Pages (http://yellow.com.tr) is the latest yellow pages organization to integrate the .tel service
into its online advertising packages.
Trevor Nadeau, Managing Director for Turkey Yellow Pages, said: "As the
established provider of verified business listings in Turkey, we're
constantly looking at the development of the internet and new
technologies to provide our customers with the greatest audience. With
.tel, we can provide an integrated, location-ready and mobile optimized
site that will really complement all of our investments in the mobile
internet, apps and better discoverability for our clients."
Located in Kavacik, Istanbul and with more than 600,000 verified
business listings and over 2.5 million unique visitors per month, the
Yellow.com.tr platform of products has become Turkey's trusted
destination for business listing information.
Dual-language information is of growing importance to businesses in
Turkey. According to statistics from the Turkish Culture and Tourism
Office[i], the number of visitors to Turkey exceeded 27 million for the
first time in 2009, with a 30% increase in visitors from the United
States since 2006. Additionally, relatively low (18%) penetration of
smart phone devices in Turkey[ii] means that information needs to be
delivered in a low-cost, optimized way for mobile access.
Ian Bowen-Morris, Chief Marketing Officer at Telnic, added: "With its
simple set-up, ability to support multiple languages and its low cost
of access over mobile devices, .tel provides a perfect promotional
platform for businesses to market both to residents and visitors in
Turkey. Turkey Yellow Pages is a clear innovator in local search with
excellent quality local business listings data at the core of its
proposition. .tel domains provide a smart way for its growing user base
to access information quickly and conveniently from any PC or mobile,
enhancing the online visibility of its clients. "
