Research & Development

Posted by Yves Raimond on , last updated

Schema.org is a collaborative effort involving the main web search engines. It aims to develop and promote the use of a shared vocabulary to help search engines understand the information on web pages and provide richer search results.

BBC R&D worked together with the EBU and Google to offer improved support for describing TV and radio programmes, as well as their broadcasts and availabilities within schema.org.

A longer blog post, with examples and diagrams, is available on the schema.org blog.
