In his presentation which Markus Linder gave on April 21st 2010 at Digitalks #13 in Vienna, he explaines how a new standard of web data handling is being created that is already championed by firms such as Google, Wikipedia, Siemens, Microsoft, Bestbuy and Yahoo. He uses case studies to show how this technology is currently being used, as well as how this technology will transform the way the web will be used in years to come.
Why is this important?
The key to Semantic Web Technology from the point of view of a firm that sells or promotes goods or services online, is that it will create a vastly increased level of visibility to consumers. This is relevant for any firm who is looking to improve their Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and their presence on third party websites. The Semantic Web offers suppliers the opportunity to describe their products and services in a form that is machine-interpretable. Suppliers that have already done so are now already better presented in search engines like Google or Yahoo (rich snippets and Yahoo Search Monkey). The development of innovative semantic web-search technologies, semantic web mashups, semantic affiliate and semantic search engine marketing will lead to a paradigm shift in online marketing and e-commerce.

When searching for “a 4-star hotel in England from the 4th to the 6th of August that has a swimming pool and is located in a region, where visitors can attend a yoga-course and a classical concert during their stay” the search engine Google suggests a vast amount of links but no useful results. Entering the same phrase in a Semantic Web-based search engine, users will be able to obtain hotel recommendations that fit their search criteria including their desired yoga course and classical concert within the region during their stay. This means that the consumer will be able to find a packaged solution, rather than having to look on multiple websites.

Google & Co find a combination of characters on websites, but they neither understand what the user is looking for nor the meaning of the search results.
