The transformation of Websites to APIs refers to the steps needed to leverage the Web content to self-defined data structures that can be consumed by machines and Web agents, called semantic annotations. Cornerstone requirement for this to happen is the incorporation of the correct vocabulary terms in a website. The presented approach addresses this challenge by helping to identify the most appropriate set of Linked Open Vocabulary terms for a given Web content context by leveraging the existing dynamics within the LOV graph and the LOD cloud.
