How it works
Submit your own page
Submitting a page
Before you can submit a page, you must add SHOE tags to it (a process
we call annotation) because the search engine only indexes these tags.
If your page does not contain SHOE, see the section on
Adding SHOE to your page below.
The form below is used to notify our search engine that you
have a SHOE page. Simply type in the
URL of the page in the space provide below and press the Submit
button. Your page should be indexed within the next 24 hours.
Adding SHOE to your page
- Locate an applicable ontology. An ontology provides the
set of terms you can use and defines them. See the
Ontologies page for advice on selecting or
creating an ontology that meets your needs.
- Add tags to your page. Here, you have two choices: you can
either read the SHOE specification and then use your favorite text editor to add the
tags to your web page by hand, or you can use the
Knowledge Annotator, a graphical user interface that simplifies the
process considerably. Although we recommend that you download the
Knolwedge Annotator in order to use it, it is possible to add tags to
your web page using the applet version and the cut and paste functions
of your operating system. See Question 2.5 of the SHOE FAQ.
- (optional)Validate your page. Any SHOE tags that do not
conform to SHOE's syntax will be ignored by the search engine, it is
therefore in your best interest to verify that your pages are properly
compliant SHOE. We provide an online validation
service that will notify you of any errors in your page.
- Submit it. Use the form above to submit your page.
