Semantic annotation plays an important role for semantic-aware web service discovery, recommendation and composition. In recent years, many approaches and tools have emerged to assist in semantic annotation creation and analysis. However, the Quality of Semantic Annotation (QoSA) is largely overlooked despite of its significant impact on the effectiveness of semantic-aware solutions. Moreover, improving the QoSA is time-consuming and requires significant domain knowledge. Therefore, how to verify and improve the QoSA has become a critical issue for semantic web services. In order to facilitate this process, this paper presents a novel lifecycle framework aiming at QoSA assessment and optimization. The QoSA is formally defined as the success rate of web service invocations, associated with a verification framework. Based on a local instance repository constructed from the execution information of the invocations, a two-layer optimization method including a local-feedback strategy and a global-feedback one is proposed to improve the QoSA. Experiments on real-world web services show that our framework can gain 65.95%~148.16% improvement in QoSA, compared with the original annotation without optimization.
