As usual, I suggest including the vast amount of GoodRelations data, as listed here:


Note that sears.com has rdf:type links to http://www.productontology.org classes, which in turn link to DBPedia and Wikipedia URIs, so at least these 15,000,000 item pages should meet the "materialized links to other resources" test.

But the description of many of these data sets is still incomplete so that we can not find out whether they fulfil the minimal requirements for being included into the LOD cloud diagram (dereferencable URIs and RDF links to or from other data sources).
