2019-03-20 | Dejan Petrovic

Based on the collected data about 12 billion web pages indexed by Yahoo and conducted research at three different times, there are data to suggest that market growth of the Semantic Web, especially when it comes to the number of RDF and microformats implementations.

The data show an increase in the use of RDF up to 510% between March 2009 and October 2010, from 0.6%  to 3.6% of web pages that are under research. It should be noted that a large number of web pages on the Web does not contain structured data, which makes these results even more interesting. This shows that the semantic web moves  increasing steps forward.
