[goodrelations] Pre-release: New GoodRelations Annotator - Simple RDFa snippets for copy-and-paste

Dear all:

We are in the process of finalizing an improved version of the 
GoodRelations Annotator Tool.

With that tool, any company can quickly create a rich description of its 
line of business, opening hours, payment options, and the like.

In the past, publishing the resulting RDF data proved to be too 
difficult for many users - or impossible due to the lack of access 
privileges. Now, based on our RDF2RDFa component,  the resulting rich 
meta-data is turned into a simple 20+ lines RDFa snippet that can be 
easily copied into your main Web page, directly before the closing 
"</body>" element.

This will work for anybody who can see and access a page's source code, 
i.e. even in Content Management Systems or Wikis, etc.

Please check it out and provide feedback:


By the way, once you have published respective meta-data, you can check 
the improved appearance in future search engines directly using the



Simply enter search terms that bring up your respective page among the 
top five hits in Google, and you will see the effect of GoodRelations 
within seconds.

Best wishes
