Nowadays, more and more sites incorporate semantic markup into their pages. This allows search engines to better understand the content of the webpage. This paper investigates the deployment of semantic markup in the form of Microdata on Russian video content delivery sites. We point out commonalities and common problems and link our data set to DBpedia. General description of quantitative and qualitative features of semantic markup usage is given, based on large dataset crawled from Russian Internet segment.
