Google adds semantic web support for video search!

Google, who has been behind Yahoo in semantic web efforts, is trying to catch up fast. Google announced support for enhanced markup for video search. This will allow webmasters to include important information, such as titles and descriptions, in machine-readable HTML along with the JavaScript or Flash videos themselves. It will use structured data open standards such as microformats and RDFa to give users more detailed previews of the information contained on the web page. Yahoo! searchMonkey has done something very similar for the content.
