RDF knowledge graphs are typically searched using triple-pattern queries. Often, triple-pattern queries will return too many or too few results, making it difficult for users to find relevant answers to their information needs. To remedy this, we propose a general framework for effective searching of RDF knowledge graphs. Our framework extends both the searched knowledge graph and triple-pattern queries with keywords to allow users to form a wider range of queries. In addition, it provides result ranking based on statistical machine translation, and performs automatic query relaxation to improve query recall. Finally, we also define a notion of result diversity in the setting of RDF data and provide mechanisms to diversify RDF search results using Maximal Marginal Relevance. We evaluate the effectiveness of our retrieval framework using various carefully-designed user studies on DBpedia, a large and real-world RDF knowledge graph.
