Undoubtedly, the World Wide Web is a big place with all sort of tools being present. However, the effectiveness highly depends on the skills and resourcefulness of the person who is using internet as well. Things certainly would have been better if internet had its own functional mind. Just like a thinking person, if it could bridge the gap between human understandable language and machine understandable language, things certainly would have been better. This is exactly where semantic web scripts come into place.
So, how web pages can be easily read by machines? Simply by adding Meta tags to the same. Therefore these machines can interpret information in a better manner and can communicate the same to other information repositories spread throughout the world. This calls for better results being provided by the search engines, with less effort.
Functioning of World Wide Web Consortium
Also known as W3C, it is an international standard body which promotes semantic web development and its usage. It is the duty of W3C, to create a common framework, over which information can be reused and freely shared. Machines usually cannot understand the meaning of each and every word, rather it works on the syntaxes. The purpose of semantic web scripts is to bridge this gap and make machines understand the actual meaning of the words in online searches.
