The proliferation of the use of Linked Data, and growth of Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud provide a good environment for interrelating previously isolated datasets. To encourage non-professional users to publish and find their required data easily, a good user interface is needed. Also, as users want to reach trustworthy or more up-to-date information in Linked Data, they would like to have access to the provenance data, as well. In this paper, a new method is presented that not only offers an easy interface for searching data in LOD cloud, but also provides provenance information of data.
