I am working on the semantic web search and recently I sparked off a discussion in the semantic web mailing list. It was about how will the semantic web emerge? Most people think that a time will come when the web developers will start tagged their content and slowly the web will change from human readable to machine readable. But the question is why as a web developer I will like to tag my data? Unless I get some real good benefits from it I am not going to take the extra pain of tagged my documents. So what I believe is that the acceptance and increase in popularity of semantic web can happen only when there are applications based on semantic web which give better performance then traditional web.
