Domains that aren’t used for web sites to get Google ads.
It was only a matter of time, right?
.Tel registry Telnic announced that .tel domain name owners will soon by able to integrate Google Adsense into their domain names. That means they’ll be able to add Google’s pay-per-click ads to their .tel domain names through the .tel management interface. The net effect? You’ll be able to turn a .tel into a parked domain name full of ads.
Technically, .tel users have been able use ads on their domains for awhile, thanks to TelAds. This system allowed users to add their own sponsored ads, but not take advantage of a vast ad network such as Google.
Of course, .tel domains get little type-in traffic. But with other content modules inside .tel, a user could conceivably add content, get ranked, and earn some advertising revenue.
Google Adsense will be enabled on .tel domain names by the end of March. Telnic may ad more ad networks in the future.
.Tel is also working on a page redesign for March. Here’s how the new pages will look.
