Best starting point in my opinion is to make sure that you have a
relationship between your FOAF URI and another e.g., foaf:knows. This
way, your URI is connected to other graphs, and opens up possibilities
Submitting a URI to a service is a centralized approach and it is one
aspect to being discovered.
There are many places to submit, so, I'll just give one of my
favourites ;) Sindice . See also the Inspector tool. I may be
mistaken about this, but I think it eventually crawls new URIs once you
