  2. Supporting your writing process. As immediate advantage of annotations you will have more facts and context data, to support your creative process.
  3. Suggesting relevant connections to your readers. Creating a network of relationships enhances the user experience, helping your public gain a deeper understanding of your content. As a result, users will spend significantly more time on your blog.
  4. Boosting your SEO results. Semantic mark-up helps your blog communicate in a language that machines understand, therefore you can achieve better results with search engines.
  5. Getting your website ready for voice search. A semantically enhanced CMS, by feeding machines with structured data, enables intelligent agents to process the information on your website and serve it to humans.
