The more we share key concepts that are related, and especially, in new ways, the more the information is verified and expanded.

Expanding an idea within the text and adding context is a way to add knowledge, bit by bit, by connecting the thought dots.My first presentation on semantic search was over two years ago and used the example of Scotland as a key concept and, at that time, the primary keyword. The illustration was the concepts that went along with that primary concept.
When we produce a piece of content for the web, each time we throw in a potential answer, like a didgeridoo, we increase search knowledge and understanding.
