In this paper we tackle some of the most pressing obstacles of the emerging Linked Data Web, namely the quality, timeliness and coherence as well as direct end user benefits. We present an approach for complementing the Linked Data Web with a social dimension by extending the well-known Pingback mechanism, which is a technological cornerstone of the blogosphere, towards a Semantic Pingback. It is based on the advertising of an RPC service for propagating typed RDF links between Data Web resources. Semantic Pingback is downwards compatible with conventional Pingback implementations, thus allowing to connect and interlink resources on the Social Web with resources on the Data Web. We demonstrate its usefulness by showcasing use cases of the Semantic Pingback implementations in the semantic wiki OntoWiki and the Linked Data interface for database-backed Web applications Triplify.
