Transcript

  • 1. Mapping the Guardian's tags to the web of data Peter Martin & Martin Belam Guardian News & Media November 2010
  • 2. Our content model relies on tags... ...which are not anywhere near as boring as you think Keywords Contributor Series Publication Tone Article Video Audio Gallery Cartoon Tags Content Keywords
  • 3. Every piece of content carries a selection of hand-picked tags
  • 4. They are added during content production ...and the system suggests them as you type
  • 5. There is also a tag browser in the CMS
  • 6. And a search so that you can 'Batch Tag'
  • 7. There is an admin interface to manage tags...
  • 8. ...and generate reports on what has been created
  • 9. On the site they give us related links & tag pages (OK, that is admittedly a little bit boring)
  • 10. They allow us to cross-promote content A film review for "The Damned United" is in amongst the football stories
  • 11. And we can create 'combiner' pages with them...
  • 12. ...many of which are more useful than bullfighting+vuvuzelas This page is assembled automatically by combining the 'review' tone with the 'books' section
  • 13. Tags are used to place editorial components Stories tagged with 'Apple' in the Technology section display recent tweets on the topic by Guardian contributors
  • 14. And to customise commercial components Adverts that appear in the Guardian Jobs slot are tuned by the tags applied to article content
  • 15. Topical navigation on the iPhone The Guardian iPhone app uses tags to provide lateral navigation into topics
  • 16. Topical navigation on the iPhone The Guardian iPhone app uses tags to provide lateral navigation into topics
  • 17. Trending on the iPhone The iPhone app also examines the tags with the most activity, to produce the 'trending' topic index
  • 18. Tags help with search results We use links to tag pages as results for synonyms and near-synonyms commonly used by readers
  • 19. Tags can go in folders ...and we can turn those folders into A-Z lists and navigation on the website
  • 20. And our tags are on Twitter To our knowledge, they are the only bit of our information architecture to have an official presence on Twitter
  • 21. Now our tags are entering the world of linked data
  • 22. Our book reviews carry ISBNs
  • 23. And our content API can be queried by ISBN http://explorer.content.guardianapis.com/
  • 24. Our artist tag pages have MusicBrainz IDs associated with them
  • 25. And the API can be queried by MusicBrainz ID
  • 26. Why XML and JSON? And not something a little more rich and semantic?
  • 27. Where do we go next? Where can we get the most linked data for the least effort? What will be used in the real world?
