Growth in Microformats and RDFa deployment
A post on “Microformats and RDFa deployment across the Web” (see http://tripletalk.wordpress.com/2011/01/25/rdfa-deployment-across-the-web/) describes “the deployment of certain microformats and RDFa markup on the Web, as percentage of all web pages, based on an analysis of 12 billion web pages indexed by Yahoo! Search“. You might think the at just over 3.5% of Web pages that RDFa is being used much – but this has grown from about 0.25% a couple of years ago. This ‘small signal’ might be indicative of a potential significant growth in use of the standard. Worth watching, I think.
Note in terms of usage of RDFa in UK Universities it will be worth reading the Universities in RDF post – see http://lin-clark.com/blog/universities-rdf
