Turkey Yellow Pages Integrates .tel Domains Into Mobile-Ready Offerings

April 14, 2011

LONDON, April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — 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. “
