Clear explanation with examples of underpinnings for semantic search.  The searcher can do more to make intent clearer to Google by adding synonyms, and to structure the query.
Many SEOs limit their understanding of entity search to vague concepts of structured data, Schema.org and Freebase.

Story
Introduction
Most of my career has involved information and communication - finding needed information, creating systems for people to have the information they need, synthesizing and organizing the information for reuse.  I teach people ways to get better information faster from web searching to answer their questions. And I provide instructional design and content editing for online learning courses about information management.
