I have a page that supersedes another page: two blog post presented early versions of an idea, but now that idea is further developed in a more archival document that has its own page.

Is there a way to indicate in my linked data (currently using JSON-LD) that the new page should be considered a more current substitute for the original page? I have updated the older pages with in-text links pointing to the new one, but would like to also express this semantically.

    1) As you say linked data, does that imply that you are fine with any vocabulary? Or does it have to be Schema.org? 2) Do you really ask about a general linked data context, or do you only look for a solution that search engines support? – unor Feb 11 '19 at 21:38
  • Even if you found JSON-LD that indicated this, browsers and search engines wouldn't pay any attention to it. – Stephen Ostermiller Feb 11 '19 at 22:26
  • What is the goal of marking up the structured data in this way? – Maximillian Laumeister Feb 12 '19 at 1:48
  • I'm looking for a search-engine-supported solution. My goal is to give search engines a hint to favor the superseding page (which is on the same domain). – Michael Ekstrand Feb 28 '19 at 19:42
