Linked data relies on one central concept: typed links connect entities stored within data sets published by different individuals. Manual input and mapping are common techniques to create these links. The authors propose a novel method, where HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) referrer information is used to create new links between linked data entities stored in different data sets. They evaluate their method using 27.86 million real-world log entries from web servers hosting linked data.
