URI lookup as well as other searches are important,

so to facilitate other LOD dataset providers to also do this i'd
suggest they simply wrap around Sindice and take the first results,
e.g.

http://sindice.com/search?q=michael+jackson+dbpedia&qt=term
http://sindice.com/search?q=pippo+baudo+dbpedia&qt=term
http://sindice.com/search?q=berlin+dbpedia&qt=term
http://sindice.com/search?q=dbpedia&qt=term

or

http://sindice.com/search?q=berlin+geonames&qt=term
http://sindice.com/search?q=galway+geonames&qt=term

or

http://sindice.com/search?q=tummarello+dblp&qt=term
http://sindice.com/search?q=georgi+dblp&qt=term


this works on any other dataset which has a semantic sitemap (which
means that we can process it as one and not as a world of unrelated
RDF files) if you don't have a sitemap however, then you'll have to
wait for the crawler plus extra stuff, if you cant have a sitemap
because you're a wrapper site, you'll have to wait for the crawler +
hope you don't get banned from the remote site you're wrapping

URIs (find) for all  :-)

p.s. ok, technically speaking this works only for lod sites where URI
= RDF source, which however make the 99% of the rdf out there. Again
using a semantic sitemap allows a search engine to know which case is
which. For non LOD sites a simple URI search can be added in fact
easily as simple postprocessing
