Dear all:

As you may know, Yahoo SearchMonkey accepts Semantic Web data only if
either provided as RDFa or via the Yahoo-specific dataRSS feed format.
This means that RDF/XML and other formats are currently not considered.

Since it is sometimes desirable to publish data in RDF/XML rather than
RDFa, we developed a conversion service "RDF2dataRSS" that turns RDF/XML
into a dataRSS feed, which can then be submitted to Yahoo.

The tool is available at


It can also be directly accessed from applications in a REST style by
sending an HTTP GET request to the URI


with <uri> being the URI of an RDF/XML file to be converted, e.g.


This returns an XML file containing the RDF content as dataRSS.

Disclaimer: The tool is in beta only, so there are no explicit or
implicit guarantees given...

A big thanks to Thomas Irmscher and Andreas Radinger for their hard work!
