SEMANTiCS 2017 is an international conference on Linked Data and the Semantic Web where business and academia meet. It will take place at the WestCord Fashion Hotel in Amsterdam, September 11 – 14 2017.
Save the date, because WordLift’s crew will be there!
The conference is the main European event of the industry and it’s run every year since 2005 by Semantic Web Company together with local partners. It offers keynotes by world-class practitioners, presentations and field reports in separate tracks, talks about several topics, and panel discussions. And, of course, many opportunities to meet like-minded professionals and network with them in an informal setting.
WordLift at SEMANTiCS 2017
At SEMANTiCS 2015 in Vienna we presented the case SLTG and their project of an enterprise knowledge graph; one year later, at SEMANTiCS 2016 in Leipzig, we were proud to unveil WordLift after several years of R&D; now – almost one year after our launch in the market – we are going back there to show our latest developments and results.
Working with the fabulous team of FREEYORK (have you already met its founder?) we wrote a paper entitled “Is semantic markup really helping websites improve their online visibility?” where we analyzed the impact of WordLift’s schema.org markup on Freeyork.org over 6 months.
We are going to share the results of our study in Amsterdam this September. All that we can anticipate is that WordLift improved the number of organic sessions and the number of new users with a double digit growth and had a positive impact on the website’s engagement. We are super-excited to share our findings at SEMANTiCS 2017.
We will have a desk in the track Poster & Demos, so if you are going there, come and meet us to see a demo of the product or chat about the next challenges of the Semantic Web.
