Sites will get label, and might get a search benefit in the future.
Mobile-Friendly GoogleGoogle announced today that it is adding a “mobile-friendly” label to sites in search results, and is experimenting with using mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.
Over the next few weeks, Google will start adding the “mobile-friendly” identifier next to qualified sites for mobile searches (see picture).
In a blog post about the move, Google suggested that how mobile-friendly a site is might also affect its rankings in the future.
We see these labels as a first step in helping mobile users to have a better mobile web experience. We are also experimenting with using the mobile-friendly criteria as a ranking signal.
It seems intuitive that Google will demote sites in mobile search if they don’t render well on a mobile browser.
You can see if your site is eligible for the mobile-friendly label on this test page.

Como reducir el back up en los dominios .tel

All backup files contain multiple versions of your .tel to ensure backward compatibility, but you actually only need the latest version, which is version 8.1. If you delete some of the other versions it could as much as halve the file size.

• Open the backup XML file

• On line 2 you should see the 1st version in the tag:

• The bold number above shows you that it is version 6.

• You can delete this whole section, so find the end of the tag which is and delete everything between the two tags. NOTE, you are looking for export and NOT exports

• You will see that the next export tag contains version 7. This can also be deleted as above if you wish, so that your xml only contains versions 8 and

• Save the file as an xml file and restore this new, smaller version

Imagenes de fondo, desde el panel de control

We have today updated the .tel control panel (CTH) so that a background image can be added. As with the logo, the image does need to be stored on the web, but for background images we have integrated Dropbox functionality, so any images hosted at Dropbox can quickly and easily be added as a background to your .tel domain.

Please note that background images are not possible with all templates (e.g. some templates fill the entire width of the page). A definitive list of which templates can be used and lots of other information regarding background images can be found in our guide at

We have noticed this morning that as Domain Monster have significantly customised their CTH, there is a minor layout issue which affects the display of the help question mark in their control panel. This has no impact on the functionality and we will be advising Domain Monster on how this can be corrected.

If you do have any other questions regarding this, please let me know.

The problem with designing for smart homes? You don’t have any users

Henrik Holen is the CEO and co-founder of Viva Labs, a next-generation smart home platform for ISPs, cable companies and utilities.

Want to make a bazillion dollars? Build a dishwasher that empties itself.
These days, it’s easy to mock many of the smart products that appear on the market, but a really good one – one that solves a real problem for consumers – is something that people will beat down your door to get.
A smart home that can reduce its carbon footprint and make people feel more secure and more comfortable without demanding too much has the potential to be such a product.
Unfortunately, with a few notable exceptions, this has not been the approach of smart home products. Instead, companies assume that the user wants a platform to build on, not a product that improves their lives. The solutions have been built by engineers, for engineers, and require enthusiastic and highly skilled users. Regular users will think they’ve been magically transported back to Windows 95.
At Viva Labs, we’ve spent the last couple of years figuring out how to design something that’s easy enough for the mass market to use. Through testing with real families and countless iterations, we’ve learnt a lot about how mass market smart homes should be designed, and how the consumer expects them to work. These are our four lessons.

1. Don’t think in terms of users

If you come from a Web or app background, you’re used to users who actively engage with your product. They’ve made a choice to use what you offer, and there is an active interaction happening.
When you move beyond the browser, this engagement becomes less clear.
When do you use a lamp? Is it when you flip the light switch or is it when you read by that light? Active interaction is only a small part of how we use the devices that surround us in the home. Instead, they work in the background, helping us and keeping us comfortable, without engaging us.
Even those who installed the technology seldom engage in a meaningful way with it. Beyond them, many of the people who use your solution don’t even know it exists. Children, visitors, and even family pets will engage with your product without ever knowing it is there. It still needs to work like expected.

2. It’s their world, not yours

Because your users aren’t consciously using your product, you can’t expect them to follow the rules you set. In an app, the boundaries are defined by you. In the home, the customer makes the rules. They won’t change habits built up over years to fit your idea of how things are supposed to work.
Take that approach and your product will appear broken, unable to deal with the way the world works.
As an example, people think thermostats are taps. The higher you set it, the more heat comes out. In fact, most thermostats are switches, with an even level of heat output. But I can’t even convince my wife of this, so you’ll never get a non-user to understand it. Instead, you have to design around these and other user quirks.

3. Improve and rethink, don’t replace

A key reason why smart homes haven’t succeeded so far is that they’ve been built for people who love technology. Because they are early adopters and keen to try new things, they are more accepting of flaws and willing to tinker. They are a tempting group to focus on, but doing this will make it impossible to cross the chasm from early adopter to mass market.
Just because it’s analog doesn’t mean its broken, and not everything needs an internet connection. Light switches, for instance, work well, and you won’t change how people use them.
To reach the mass market you have to improve and rethink the product, not replace it. To win users over, you need to focus on building services and products that offer clear value, not potential for tinkering.
Nest, the popular learning thermostat recently bought by Google, has done improving and rethinking well. Traditional “smart” thermostats added lots of functionality. You could program them, set schedules and modes, but they didn’t improve the actual thermostat experience.
What Nest did was find a way to improve on the existing thermostat experience, letting the user continue their regular habits while still saving them money and making them more comfortable.

4. Clear a path: Find the irritants and remove them

People want to do less and think less. Helping them do that is the secret to success. Your product, especially in the smart home, should clear a path through daily life, removing the small irritants, the things you have to remember to do and the repetitive tasks.
For us at Viva Labs, that’s meant intelligent automation. When I leave the house, the heating gets turned down, the lights off, and the burglar alarm on. All these are things that I used to have to remember, but now just happen by themselves. In a busy life, these little things help, and we believe that is the future of the smart home.
Within the next year or two, most of us will have the opportunity to make our homes considerably smarter and more connected. Apple, Google, Samsung and your local cable company will fight to be the platform that supports more and more of your daily life. Whether or not they succeed will depend on how well they understand how we live our daily lives.
finally, a great solution to clicking on a .tel website phone number. ah-hoo!!

and, the call-centre directory idea yet again comes to mind.
I'm sure there will be an app in the near future, siri taking the calls.
apple adding function to .tel, yeah-hey

How to place and answer iPhone calls on your Mac with OS X Yosemite

With Apple's newly released OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, users can be alerted to incoming calls to their iPhone on their Mac, and even answer a call and carry a conversation through their Mac in a simple, seamless process.

Phone calling in Yosemite requires an iPhone with iOS 8 and an activated carrier plan. Both the Mac and the iPhone must use the same Apple ID for the system to automatically work.

Phone calls in Yosemite actually work through the FaceTime application. As a result, users must ensure they are signed in to their Apple ID for FaceTime calls on both their iPhone and their Mac, and both devices must also be connected to the same Wi-Fi network.

Placing phone calls in Yosemite works systemwide. That means users can initiate a call through the Contacts app, through the FaceTime app, or even by selecting a phone number in plain text or on a website.

Instructing Yosemite to dial the chosen number will automatically initiate the call. The user has no need to do anything with their iPhone, and the call itself will be routed through their Mac, including audio output and microphone input.

The call is handled by default in speakerphone mode, but if a user has headphones and a mic inserted into their Mac, those will work as well.

Answering a call on your Mac running Yosemite is even easier. A ringtone will play and an accompanying notification appears in the upper right side of the screen.

From here users can choose to accept the call, which automatically routes it through the Mac, or they can decline it with the usual options of replying with a message or setting reminders.

When a user is in a call, the iPhone displays a green bar at the top of the display showing the current call time. The bar can be tapped to pull up detailed call information or control the call directly from the iPhone.

Missed call alerts are also displayed accordingly through Notification Center in Yosemite.

Phone calls through Yosemite will not work if the iPhone has Wi-Fi Calling enabled. And the Cellular Calls option can be disabled on Yosemite through the settings of the Mac FaceTime application.

Phone call routing isn't restricted to Yosemite, as both the iPad and iPod touch can also be used to answer calls. Here the process works the same as on the Mac, automatically handling the call in speaker mode and routing audio output and mic input through the connected device on which the call was answered. Missed call alerts are also displayed across devices.

iPad and iPod touch calling can be disabled by going into the iOS Settings application, choosing FaceTime, and turning off the option for iPhone Cellular Calls.

Post-Pigeon Best Practice: How To Optimize For Internet Yellow Pages & Directories

While many marketers have written off Internet Yellow Pages as dead, the recent Google Pigeon update may have made them relevant once more.

Yellow Pages SEO
The recent Google Pigeon update appears to have provided a bit of a traffic upswing for Internet Yellow Pages (IYPs) and other online business directories, at the cost of individual local businesses’ site rankings in many cases.
In order to cash in on this new paradigm, businesses must once again return to the yellow pages as a source of customer referrals. Here’s how to optimize your presence in IYPs and other directories.
Now, if you’ve been watching the course of local online business trends over the past decade and noted how the internet has impacted both traditional media and their online equivalents, you may be thinking I’ve completely lost the plot by recommending to shift back to Internet Yellow Pages promotional efforts (since many businesses have moved their advertising budgets away from yellow pages).
Search engines and the internet have put some serious dents in old local media powerhouses like yellow pages, newspapers, classifieds, etc. I’ve frequently mentioned in the past how Google and other local search engines were edging out IYPs as the local business information provider-of-choice for consumers. However, the pendulum may be swinging back somewhat now.
As a number of us noted, the recent Pigeon update improved the ranking and visibility of IYPs and directories, and SEMrush and other competitive analytics services are already showing a real upswing in those sites’ visits as a result.
Some of the sites that appear to be showing increases in search referral traffic include,,,, and
IYP Search Referral Traffic Increased In 2014
Source: SEMrush
Top Internet Yellow Pages sites, and even some of the second-tier yellow pages sites, have seen increases in traffic over the past year, particularly after late spring and going into the summer.
Other business review sites also seem to have enjoyed bumps up in rankings in various market/category combinations. Local business reviews sites seem to have benefited in many cases, including Angie’s List, the Better Business Bureau (BBB), HomeAdvisor and probably Yelp (even though SEMrush shows a slight dip downwards for Yelp after June).
Business Reviews Graphs
Some vertical business directories (these are directories that are devoted to specific business categories) have apparently also benefited from the changes, including ones like,,, and
Vertical Directories Graphs
It’s pretty simple math to figure out that in many business categories, if the local directory sites have risen some in rankings, then other stuff was equally displaced. It’s likely that some local businesses’ websites are not as visible in each of the search markets where this occurred.
If you’re a business that lost its visibility when the tide shifted, then you need to seriously consider beefing up your presence and visibility within the directory sites where the consumers are now going.
Even if your website or local pack listing did not lose its first-page-of-search-results placement, you should still consider strengthening your directory game in order to increase your visibility and maximize your presence where consumers are looking.

Optimizing Your Business In IYP & Business Directories

Below are a handful of tips for optimizing your business in Internet Yellow Pages and Business Directories:


First, do a few searches for your type of business in your area and then see which directory sites are ranking well in search results. For instance, when searching for [auto repair Nashville], I can see and the sites showing up on Page 1, and near the top of Page 2 (which could easily pop up a notch onto Page 1).
So, I would then focus my efforts for an auto repair business there in,, the BBB and Angie’s List.
When you do this, you likely will need to conduct a few different searches with logical variations, such as [car repair Nashville], [transmission repair Nashville], etc – this would add and to my list.


Once you have your list of local directory sites, visit the pages from them that are showing up for your keyword searches in order to assess what you may need to do with each. Determine whether you merely wish to optimize your business profiles there at their free levels, or whether you’ll wish to purchase advertising.
Questions you should ask are: Does my business listing appear on the first page of results from the directory webpage that is ranking for my local business keyword searches? And, if your listing is already on Page 1 there, is it ranking higher on the page – such as in the first half to first third of the page?
In some cases, adjusting your listing might help it pop up onto Page 1 for free, but in many cases you may want to seriously consider advertising since ads are typically going to be in the upper portion of a directory page.
For some sites like Angie’s List and the BBB, you can’t advertise, but you may be able to apply for membership and that can help you to address any customer reviews or questions (and, don’t forget about adding/correcting any information about your business that you can!).
Above all, for the directory page to benefit you, your business must appear on Page 1 of that directory site. It helps further for it to rank near the top, but that’s not as important as simply being there.

To Advertise Or Not?

For those sites that allow businesses to advertise, this can be a complex assessment. I’ll say that in general, it may not be worthwhile to advertise in the print yellow pages books in many cases, but IYP and online directory sites often have much more cost-effective advertising options compared with the heyday of print.
With many of these sites, simply purchasing the least-expensive ad option might be the minimum necessary to enable you to appear in the ad section of their first page of listings – so, that might be all you would need.
IYPs may offer bundled advertising deals that would combine print with internet and mobile advertising – I think that in most cases you don’t need the print (there are undoubtedly exceptions to this – small towns and locations in the Midwest of the U.S. may still have sufficient print book usage to rationalize value for the print ad costs).
I think the main goal for you will be to get on Page 1 of the directory page in question, and closer to the top of it. There can be other value-add options that you may want to consider, such as add-ons that would make the listing more visible and more attention-getting for consumers.
In the past, there was some anecdotal evidence that IYP ads might provide actual SEO benefits – but, most of these links will be identified and discounted as ad links by search engines, or they’re nofollowed on those sites – so, this probably should not be considered to be an SEO stratagem.

Your Phone Number

Keep your standard local phone number. If you choose to advertise, I recommend that you continue to avoid using call-tracking numbers for the sake of your overall local SEO healthiness.
A number of directory sites employ call tracking so that they can show more of their sites’ value to advertisers, but these numbers can be detrimental to the rankings of your business in local search, and if the tracking number displays a nonlocal area code, it might have an impact on your conversion rates when consumers are choosing a business.
So use your main local phone number and not an 800 number nor tracking number.

Your Location

Leverage geographic placement with directory sites. Some directory sites will allow you to select multiple cities where your listings may appear – to maximize your visibility in major metro areas, be sure to go to the effort of associated your business listing with as many geographic/city names as applicable.

Directory Site SEO?

Business listings pages from online directory sites are often a type of local search results pages. As such, there are optimization techniques that can enable your business to rise up in their rankings, just as with the local results in the major search engines! So, there is potential you could apply these in order to pop up into the first page of the directory site without incurring advertising or membership fees, if you’re not already there.
Starting with the name – some directories will display businesses according to alphabetical order, so you might be able to reorder or modify your business name in order to pop up onto Page 1 (the website is one example).
In most cases, you would likely have to file for a name change or apply for a “Doing Business As” name, and then supply the government approved paperwork to the directory to ask them to change how they list you. (Disclaimer: I do not know the business rules for these sites – they likely differ from organization to organization.)
In yet other cases, the businesses are displayed in order of proximity to the center of the search area – in order to optimize for this, you’d have to alter your address, which might not be worth it for the potential added exposure benefit.
Don’t laugh! Businesses have actually done this to attempt to improve their rankings in search engines, so why not in directory sites, too? (See: Relocation, Relocation, Relocation – A “New” Local Ranking Tactic?)


Optimize your business directory profile. There are frequently a number of elements of business directory profiles that may be optimized beyond merely checking to see if your name, address and phone number are correct: business categories, lists of products and services, written descriptions, hours of operations, website link, photos, logos, social media links, and more.
I’ve written about those before, although I was focusing more on search optimization benefits then. Your optimization in this instance should be more focused upon making you as visible and attractive within the directory site as possible.

Review Sites

Improve your presence in reviews sites. For business reviews sites, your promotional value is naturally going to be heavily affected by your overall reviews and ratings.
Obviously, your overall customer service needs to be excellent already – if it is less than what it could be, beef it up by studying companies at the top of the customer service game, like Zappos.
But, there are also things you can do to improve your presence in reviews sites online, such as encouraging happy customers to post reviews, responding capably to feedback, and more. See 4 Go-Tos To Make Online Reviews Work For Your Business.

Social Media

Be sure to connect your directory listings with your social media accounts wherever possible! I’m seeing many instances where a business’s Facebook page is ranking well in the new search results, and consumers may like businesses that appear more open to interacting with them online, so enhance the chances of this happening.
I’ve also seen a lot of instances where businesses have made errors when adding their social media URLs to directory sites, so be sure to check all your links when you look at your listings and directory profile pages.


Watch your directory listing over time. Revisit the page where your listing appears at least monthly so you may see if conditions have changed since the last time you viewed your listing. It’s possible that new listings (or new advertisers) could have appeared in the meantime, affecting your business’s directory listing.
Did you know you can see how many visitors were referred from directory sites to your site’s pages in web analytics systems like Google Analytics? I recommend that you compare these referrals before and after you’ve performed optimizations on your listings – if you were successful in your efforts, I would imagine you’ll likely see the referral numbers rise!

Further Increasing Sales

Many businesses have hyper-focused on how they rank and appear in Google and Bing search results, and your presence in that top tier of search is definitely valuable and important. However, using these tips can further optimize your presence in the second tier of search,  thereby increasing your potential customer referrals and associated sales. And, increasing sales is what we’re all after, anyway.

Background Images for .TEL Domains

Background Images for .TEL Domains

Telnic recently allowed images to be used as backgrounds on .TEL domains. They make the web pages “pop”.
Currently, the only way to insert a background image is via a third party tool such as Telmasters or TelVision. Once inserted, the background is used for all subdomains. Backgrounds must be hosted on an external server.
To insert a background with Telmasters free Quick Update tool, supply its URL in the Background URL field.
To insert a background with TelVision, click [Template] and supply its URL in the B/G Image URL.
We recommend you use the “Stretch” option to ensure best fit for your image. An image size of approximately 1500 pixels wide by 1000 high or 4:3 ratio is recommended.
Note that backgrounds are not supported for all template styles. We like the narrow news style templates.

If you have a large number of domains, you can use Telmaster’s Bulk Insert Tool to insert an image across all domains. Optimal tool performance if all your domains are grouped into one or a few CTH accounts.

Video in the CTH

We have today added video functionality to the .tel control panel (CTH). This will automatically appear when you log in (If not, please try refreshing the page) and is located between the “Contact Information” and “Keywords” sections.

You can show a video that is hosted on YouTube, Vimeo or Daily Motion. To do so:

- Click Add in the Video section
- Select the Source of the video from the dropdown (YouTube, Vimeo or Daily Motion)
- Add the link to the video hosting service. For example, with YouTube click the “Share” button just below the video to see the link that needs to be added

I have held back on making this announcement as registrars do need to activate the functionality. The Video section will still appear even if it isn't activated, but you would get an error if you tried to save. I believe the majority are now activated but if anyone has an issue please let us know and we can follow up with the registrar.

Background images -->for example 1440 x 1080 pixels-->stretch

We have this week launched background image functionality for .tel domains. Currently this is only available to be activated through the API, although it will also be added to the .tel control panel (CTH) at a later date. Full details of this new functionality can be found in this document -

As mentioned in the document, some of the designs mean that not all templates are suitable for a background image (i.e. some don’t have a background). Unfortunately the API commands have different IDs to those used in the CTH, For clarity, therefore, the templates which can have a background image are the ones with the following IDs in the CTH:

• Option 2
• Option 3
• Option 5
• Option 6

Also, as with all design aspects, background images are set for the .tel as a whole, rather than a folder by folder basis.

As mentioned in the document, there are three ways in which an image can be added. These are set by the "bip" value in the API:

0 (default) - image is aligned top left and constrained (if applicable) to the width of the page

1 – image is stretched to width and height of page

2 – image is repeatedly tiled (works best with smaller images)

For the default (0) as this will be displayed on a variety of different monitor and tablet screen sizes, it is impossible to create an ideal dimension for all. With the majority of screens having a 4:3 aspect ratio, however, this is the ratio we recommend (for example 1440 x 1080 pixels).

For the other two as the image is either stretched or tiled, it's completely up to you. As mentioned above, the tiled setting is best with smaller images to get the full effect of the tiling.

Telmasters tools were updated to support background image management:
Quick Update
Directory Populate new BG directive
Bulk Insert/Delete support is under the Template option.

Hidden Cash craze

If you want to see how .TEL is applied to the Hidden Cash craze
read the blogs and visit the site.
Just had game #3 for $60 with some media attention finally.
BTW, this can be applied to any town with a good .TEL merchant base, eg UK communities.

The Hidden Cash Game Comes to Aurora, Ontario!

The Hidden Cash craze started in San Francisco in May (2014) and has progressed to towns and communities worldwide. Hiding cash and tweeting clues has been quite entertaining and finding cash is even more rewarding for the lucky few. Selfies are taken of their discovery to spread the word. Some people even share their good fortune within their community by giving back to others less fortunate.

In creating a Hidden Cash Game for Aurora, we decided to engage the combined community of both merchants and residents and are using Hidden Cash as a shop local initiative. Players have a map revealed while they visit merchant websites. Played weekly, the first part of the map is available Monday through Saturday, while the remaining parts are revealed on Sunday.

Once completed, players visit the secret location to hunt for the cash. At that time, a final clue in a tweet or online location pinpoints the "stash".

With a large group of merchants already participating in the Discover Aurora  game, we had an instant base to begin a new shop local initiative. Our form of  hidden cash game effectively promotes local merchants to local residents.  We do this by getting players to answer questions, whose answers are found only on mobile-friendly merchant (.TEL) websites. With each correct answer, more of a player's map is revealed.

Questions and answers usually focus on a deal or coupon each merchant has to offer.

As a shop local marketing initiative, Hidden Cash Today is a win-win for players and merchants alike. Players get a chance to win cash while discovering new things about local merchants' products, services and deals.

If you are local to Aurora, Ontario join the game at

Google se aventura a la venta de dominios web con Google Domains

Google se aventura a la venta de dominios web con Google Domains

Parece casi evidente que, tras tantos años y una práctica omnipresencia en la red, finalmente Google se haya decidido a vender dominios. Google Domains, que todavía está en “beta” como suele pasar con muchos servicios de Google, tiene como objetivo revolucionar la venta de dominios en todo el mundo.
Aunque su principal objetivo por ahora es hacer frente a GoDaddy y el mercado estadounidense, está claro que Google Domains quiere convertirse en un servicio global y que ofrezca a la venta de dominios una expansión tal como la de su buscador en la red.
En un principio su objetivo es únicamente la venta del dominio y no ofrecer directamente servidores ni ningún servicio de hosting, algo de lo que se ocupan empresas con las que está colaborando Google Domains, como Squarespace, Wix, Weebly y Shopify. Pero esto no descarta que en un futuro Google quiera ofrecer también estos servicios.
Para destacar frente a la competencia, Google ofrece precios competitivos y servicios extra, así como un sistema muy sencillo para la creación de cuentas de email y servicios de forwarding, con la ventaja de que al usar los servidores DNS de la propia Google, hay menos tiempos de espera y complicaciones.
Claro que, siendo conspiranoico está la duda de si Google “premiará” a sus dominios en las búsquedas para fomentar el uso de sus servicios y, por tanto, hasta que punto no habrá un monopolio en la red. De momento os podéis pasar por Google Domains y ver si os convence.

Google launches invite-only domain registration service

Google launches invite-only domain registration service

If you fancy yourself as a .guru or any other newfangled Internet address, Google wants you to try out its new domain name registration service.
The search giant quietly launched Google Domains on Monday as an invite-only beta service. It’s being billed as an easy way to set up an address on the Web with simple management tools.
Until now, Google has told people looking to register that it “doesn’t register or host domain names.” It referred them to partner companies including GoDaddy and eNom.
Google Domains, though, has features that might make people think twice before going with other registration services. For instance, Google will cover the cost for private registration—that is, keeping your name, address and contact information from the public eye.
The service also includes branded email, such as, and forwarding to other domains or websites.
Google is billing its vast Internet infrastructure as another perk, promising quick and reliable links between the domain and its websites.
The move represents competition for GoDaddy, the world’s largest domain name registrar with over 57 million domains under its management. The registrar has privacy protection starting from $7.99 per domain and email services from $4.99 a month.
The company filed for an IPO of $100 million earlier this month.
Google Domains will also give users up to 100 subdomains to customize websites, phone support and a variety of management tools.
The Google Domains site does not list the prices for the new service, and asks potential users to apply for a trial code. It does have a page showing a photo, however, in which “registration” for one year is $12. GoDaddy offers discounted one-year registrations with .com endings from about $8.
Google did not immediately reply to a request for more information.
The new service follows the move last year by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) to introduce up to 1,400 new generic top-level domains from 22 including the ubiquitous .com, .net and .org.
The new names include endings such as .rentals, .club, .reviews, .photography and .guru, which has proven popular. Google is listed by ICANN as an accredited registrar for some top-level domain names such as .biz, .com, .info, .name, .net, .org and .pro.

TelNames Header Update

TelNames Header Update

TelNames users now have the ability to control their “image” to the public by changing their header imagery at the top of their site.
This will allow for some sites to have a call-to-action message that will act like an advertisement. Others can make their header look similar to a Twitter page.
There are several styles:
1. just your logo and header text
2. header image plus text plus overlaid logo
3. header image plus text
4. just your ad-like message (image), no header text
Telnames styles
A video is available to show you how to make the changes.
