Luar biasa perkembangan Semantic Web. Silakan dinikmati semoga berguna.
As the Web has matured, we’ve learned how to augment web pages with information that makes the pages easier to index by search engines. This practice is called Search Engine Optimization, and while it helps lead people to answers, it doesn’t provide answers. Put another way, instead of asking Google “What cameras are available for the iPad?” we search for “iPad camera” then use the returned results to answer our real question. The Semantic Web would be able to provide the answer more directly.
As part of its Open Graph program, Facebook has chosen to use RDFa, code that augments HTML pages with meaning. Google is also using RDFa in order to produce “rich snippets,” convenient summary information about search results at a glance. Many of their examples are for product reviews.
Best Buy began using RDFa in its web pages about two years ago in order to share more information about its stores. They leverage Good Relations, a vocabulary created specifically for e-commerce.
GoodRelations is a standardized vocabulary for product, price, and company data that can (1) be embedded into existing static and dynamic Web pages and that (2) can be processed by other computers. This increases the visibility of your products and services in the latest generation of search engines, recommender systems, and other novel applications.
The retailers that include semantic aspects in their websites will have an advantage over those that don’t. Best Buy has already reported an unexpected 30% increase in search traffic. As more sophisticated crawlers appear, retailers need to expose their data in new ways that enhance a shopper’s ability to find exactly what they’re looking for.
