<p>The growing number of datasets published on the Web as linked data brings both opportunities for high data availability and challenges inherent to querying data in a semantically heterogeneous and distributed environment. Approaches used for querying siloed databases fail at Web-scale because users don't have an a priori understanding of all the available datasets. This article investigates the main challenges in constructing a query and search solution for linked data and analyzes existing approaches and trends.</p>
