META Tag Scanning Of Global News Media Coming To GDELT 3.0

Last week we announced that we would be adding JSON-LD extraction to our GDELT 3.0 crawlers as part of a forthcoming new metadata dataset. Today we're excited to announce that we have moved forward this scanning into our GDELT 2.0 fleet to roll it out imminently. We are also expanding this concept into a full-fledged new dataset of the embedded metadata that structures the modern semantic web. Towards this end, we are adding the contents of the <META> HTML tags to this new dataset.
