Semantic Search

Yahoo has announced it is to adopt key standards of the "semantic web", (as featured in BBC News). This is great news for all web users because a good semantic search should bring more relevance to web page results since the semantic mark-up tells the search engine a lot about the nature and content of a particular web page. Surely this is the future for all search engines, to rely less on links and more on specific content relevance leading to a much richer search experience. 939 Design are into their third year of delivering standards based and valid css websites with semantic mark-up. Everyone catches on to good web practices eventually, even Yahoo!
