Web portals are entry points for information presentation and exchange over the internet used by a community of interest. Therefore they require efficient supportbfor communication and information sharing. Current Web technologies employed to build up these portals present serious limitations regarding facilities for searching, accessing, extracting, interpreting and processing of information. The application of Semantic Web technologies has the potential of overcoming these limitations and will lead to semantically enhanced Web portals. This paper presents the state of the art application of Semantic Web technologies in web portals and the improvements achieved by the use of such technologies.
