What is Metaweb?

Metaweb is a service that makes it dramatically easier for bloggers and site owners to aggregate content about a specific topic – like Tom Cruise, The Da Vinci Code, or San Francisco – and to surface related content in new and powerful ways.

Metaweb is organized around topics, or entities, which are unique, unambiguous concepts with their own URLs. In general, they are much more precise than keywords, and they carry a lot more information. Right now we catalog about 12M entities, in categories spanning movies, books, TV shows, celebrities, locations, companies, and more.

For each of these entities we collect rich metadata and links to quality content feeds around the web. And then we make that all available to you via our blogger tools and developer APIs.

This makes it much simpler for you to develop intelligent, content-rich sites and to keep your readers more engaged. For example, if you were designing a page about Will Smith, a single query to Metaweb could get you rich metadata about him, an image, updates from his Facebook page, recent New York Times headlines about him, a gallery of his movies from Netflix, links to his pages on Wikipedia and IMDb, and a list of related topics your users might want to explore.
