‘RDFa’ – these three initials are quite exciting and I can’t wait to see where they go on the web.

Through RDFa webmasters can (essentially) tag certain areas of content and dictate to search engines exactly what is where. i.e this is a quote, this is a review, this is a picture and more.

I guess the idea behind the developing standard is to make content a lot more usable and defined, instead of lumping it all together as ‘content’.

Google recently posted on their WebMaster central blog about how Webmasters can use RDFa to dictate to Google how an image is licensed and what licensing it is released under.

The video is well worth a look.
