Spamming with Data

Project description: 

In order to fully understand the benefits and perils of structured data on the Web, we should not only understand the opportunities, but also its pitfalls. In particular, schema.org is pivotal in communicating data to search engines or to email application, to name but a few.

In this project the team should:

  • Understand how schema.org works
  • Investigate how schema.org is used to spam now
  • Come up with new ideas of spamming and counter-spamming
  • Develop a (counter-)spamming plan involving structured data

Prerequisites: The topic is more geared to programmers, but especially participants who understand how to entice customers should team up with computer science crowd
