When you install Drupal 7, you notice that RDF is enabled by default. Now... I have a website called 7 Tutorials and I am wondering if RDF is useful, considering the content shared on the website.

I read a bit about it and learned that the "Resource Description Framework" is the standard for encoding metadata and other knowledge on the Semantic Web.

I admit I did not research much about it and I am not sure I fully understand its use cases but, it sounds to me RDF would be useful only to websites which share data in a structured way. Is this correct? Would I have anything to gain by enabling RDF on my website? (e.g. help with SEO).

As far as Google is concerned if your website is well structured it will be easy for crawlers to crawl your website.Morever Google Rich snippets uses RDF and it needs every site to be RDF structured if you want to enable rich snippets for your website.

So Unless you have any problem with RDF module enabled why you need to disable it?

  • OK. So... If I enable this module, is there any additional maintenance work required? Commented Dec 27, 2011 at 10:36
