Here’s a snippet of insights and links shared by all our speakers:
Olesia highlighted the influential role of ChatGPT in creating efficient Python scripts for SEO. The glorious rise of AI has given a boost to many SEOs. With the power of AI-driven prompts, SEOs can craft efficient Python scripts that can be shared with your friends and colleagues.
It is possible to learn Python with absolutely no engineering background.
Here’s a trivia: Olesia’s talented son used ChatGPT to learn Python and create plugins for Warcraft! (God-level unlocked). Olesia recommended ChatGPT over Bard and Perplexity.ai for relevancy and data-accuracy.
Olesia suggested one can take two to three sessions on Coursera or any other platform for understanding Python and then use Chat-GPT for creating scripts.
Important tip: Don’t squeeze all your requirements into 1 ChatGPT prompt. Break the activity into smaller milestones.
Elias shared how he uses Python to crawl websites
Another interesting thing was that you could discover every sitemap and add them to a data frame( which converts an XML sitemap to a table)
All one has to do is feed a Robots.txt URL and the script will discover every sitemap URL on the website that can be downloaded. The sitemaps will be bifurcated into categories like a normal sitemap /zipped sitemap/sitemap index.
An amazing code to collect all the URLs on the website and segregate them into directories.
The directory highlights how the website and content are structured.
This is an amazing resource for segregation data and analyzing the complete website.
Discovering URLs in the sitemap, NOT crawled.
Counts of External Link Domains.
Page size and download latency.
Here’s Elias’ course on Data Science with Python for SEO.
Andreas (Artios.io) Wanted to quit SEO 13 years ago. Decided to be trained in data science. The more he learned about coding and higher mathematics the more he fell in love with search engines.
Andreas is the author of Data-Driven SEO with Python and loves mathematics.
Andreas demonstrated using Python for keyword clustering and search intent analysis. It’s fascinating to see how Python can simplify and automate these tasks, allowing users to uncover valuable insights from large amounts of data.
The process described, from extracting SERPs to grouping keywords based on search intent, showcases the power of Python in data manipulation and analysis. The functions demonstrated, while lengthy, provide a systematic approach to comparing and clustering keywords efficiently.
