Idea for RDF vocabulary

  As you can see by the attached email, I touched on part of this idea with
Gregg Kellog. I reviewed the "Eligible Region" specification in Good
Relations and it is close but it appears that the smallest restriction is a
state (or country) and I think that is simply too big.

  I assist a friend with their website, SEO, and SEM, for their junk
removal company. They are located in Columbus, Ohio (a fairly densely
populated area) serve a 25 mile (40km) radius area. In reviewing their
traffic (paid and organic) I learned a lot of it was for queries related to
junkyards, scrapyards and salvage (I have remedied that in the CPC
advertising). Additionally, within that there was a sprinkling related to
Columbus, Georgia and Columbus, Mississippi.

  Thus, it occurred to me that it would be nice to have a way to specify
"negative keywords" within the RDF vocabulary, as well as to neatly
delineate a service area.

Thanks for the work you do for the benefit of all.

Thanks for the reply, I'm still pretty new to web design, much less the
semantic web and it can be overwhelming how much there is to
learn...sometimes I suspect a thing is possible but I don't know what to
call it or how to enact it.  Anyway, thanks for the clarification and the
work you put in on something that will benefit us all.
