Even though the Linked Data movement is gaining ground, vast amounts of information are only present in the traditional Web of human-readable pages. Data from such sources in the Surface Web and the Deep Web needs to be published as structured data into the Linked Data Web. The work described in this paper links the schema and individuals in the RDF extracted from surface and deep Web sources with the schema and individuals already present in the linked data cloud. To this end, the authors extend their prior work on automatically generating Semantic Web Services from Web sources.
