In this work the application of semantic techniques to keyword based search is addressed. First, the semantic measurements and their application to annotate and classify the results provided by a traditional search engine are studied. Secondly, it addresses techniques to translate keyword queries into queries written in a formal unambiguous language to query structured data sources. In particular, data sources based on Description Logics and relational data sources are taken into account.
