    We all know that the upcoming Web 3.0 will be "Semantic Web", which means Meaningful Web. So, will the current SEO techniques completely changed? How to optimize my site for Semantic Search Engine?

    Semantic = "Meaning of"

    He's asking for speculation if anchored text will have to be adapted.

    Semantic seo isn?t a new concept, targeting secondary keywords or (Latent semantic indexing) LSI keywords is semantic seo.

    Semantic gives the bots a chance to look at all of the content around the link to make a conclusion.

    I think that's pretty much the concisest on what crawler's are doing right now. If you mean a better understanding of relevancy (ie. interpreting text, and comparing it to many sources on the fly besides just relevancy from a topic to links) of content and how it's all woven together, then that'd really just rely on Google's alogo for the beyond the near future, wouldn't it?

    Semantic search is closely related the increasing value of editorial links among other things. The latter concept places more value not to acquired links, but to those placed within a body of text. All these links have to be topically relevant and organically used in an article. For instance, this can be citations which are especially helpful for local SEO.

    As any other backlink, editorial backlink can be negotiated, and this article deals with 12 ways of increasing chances of getting editorial links - http://kaiserthesage.com/editorial-links/.

    Semantic web has to do with structured data where the information on a page isn't just a combination of words that are put into an algorithm but is contextually relevant data. This way Google can draw correlations between two "entities" and combine them despite the lack of an overt connection (a shared keyword).

    Basically it's about Google knowing the context of a page or a query and providing targeted results that may not share the keyword but are intimately tied with the topic of the query.

    After writing me own definition, I realized that I didn't answer the original question (I even asked a similar question about a month ago but got 2 reponses. not much of a discussion)

    Personally I don't think too many of the recent techniques will really change, they will just be more targeted. With semantic web what's the point in gaining links from non-related websites? In fact I bet that would hurt more with full semantic search than it does now but on page optimization wouldn't really change that much. You'd still target a topic, you would probably have to add context (im not clear on how they intend to implement semantic search. Will that fall on the optimizers or be baked into the search engine?)

    For now though, the only thing I can imagine that would prepare you for semantic search would be to implement schema.org and structured data. Use the data highlighter in GWMT or set up authorship/publisher...ship... I think that's a word. Those are the only current "semantic" signals right now and they're effects are hotly debated.

    This at least is my view on semantic search and how it will change things. I'm very interested in this topic and if any of you disagree or would like to add/append to my opinion I would love to hear it. There's still a lot to learn on this topic.
