Yahoo Embraces Semantic Web

Susan Hall

As it moves toward the next generation of search, Yahoo has announced it is adopting key standards of the semantic Web, according to BBC News.


TechCrunch blogger Michael Arrington says this means the Web will become organized in a hurry as it requires properly structured data from third parties and pulls all the available information together in search.


The company previously discussed plans to allow third parties to alter and enhance search results. It discusses its latest moves here.


And, in a project known as "Operation Yodel," the company is moving its European headquarters from London to Geneva, Switzerland, reports The Register, citing a story in the Financial Times. It says the tax climate will be better there.


And amid reports of "informal" talks between Yahoo and Microsoft, one analyst wrote in a note to clients that Yahoo must soon realize its time is running out and it will have to take Redmond's takeover offer, writes Todd Bishop of the Seattle-Post-Intelligencer.
