Dear all:

We are happy to release a significantly improved version of the 
GoodRelations Annotator, a tool that helps any business in the world to 
create a rich description of its line of business, opening hours, 
payment options, and the like in RDF.

The new version creates a handy RDFa snippet of the data. Now, it is 
sufficient to copy and paste that snippet right before the closing 
"body" elements of the main Web page. This will work for anybody who can 
see and access a page's source code,i.e. even in Content Management 
Systems or Wikis, etc.

To our knowledge, this is the easiest approach of creating rich business 
descriptions for the Web of Linked Data.

Please check it out! And please spread the word to any site owner in 
your address book:


A step-by-step tutorial of 13 minutes complements the tool and is 
available at
