The semantic web is all about embedding into HTML code (or as JSON) descriptions of entities on a page. For example, on a member profile on DaniWeb, we actually use Schema.org microdata to indicate that the page is about a specific person, and everything we know about that person.

On this page, itself, we use Schema.org's Q&A definition to illustrate what a question is, what a potential answer is, and whether that answer has been voted up or down.

Doing this allows the search engines to actually put together what they call a knowledge graph of all these entities on the web, and understand how they are interconnected.

web semantics is about meaning. giving meaning content on the internet so that when search engines index they also get the meaning so that they can serve users more meaningful data
