A new article on Search Engine Journal reports that Python is used to power platforms, perform data analysis, and run their machine learning models. Get started with Python for technical SEO.

What is Python?

Python is an open-source, object-oriented interactive programming language that is interpreted line by line. With simple and easy to learn syntax, as well as advanced readability and support for several modules and libraries, Python is well-loved due to the increased productivity it provides. As a testament to this, Python is used by some of the biggest organizations in the world to power their platforms, perform data analysis, and run their machine learning models.

Companies including Google, YouTube, Netflix, NASA, Spotify, and IBM have publicly stated Python has been an important part of their growth, due to its simplicity, speed, and scalability. In fact, Google's first web-crawler was actually written in Python and it remains one of their official server-side languages. You can run Python scripts in several ways, depending on what works best for you. Most systems come with Python already installed, this will more than likely be Python 3, but you can find out which version you have by typing Python -version in your terminal.

How to learn Python

There are several online tools available for learning Python, and the best method depends on your own learning style. For example, if you are a visual learner and enjoy following along to video coding, then freeCodeCamp is a great place to start. If you work better with a more project-structured learning style then Codecademy and Sololearn are great places to try out. These websites also provide a way to track your learning and start a project portfolio. Some sites gamify the learning journey, such as CodeCombat and Checkio, these provide a great way to build a habit of coding each day, in a fun way. If you prefer to code along with an instructor in real-time and identify as a woman or non-binary, then you can also sign up for a free 8-week course with Code First Girls (disclaimer, I work for Code First Girls).

    Python is refers to that source which is used to power platforms, perform data analysis, and run their machine learning models. And Machine learning can help to understanding of queries (intent), personalization, and voice search.

    Not many SEOs use Python for their problem-solving, even though it could save you a lot of time and effort.

    Dynamically written, one of the fastest growing Programming language and easy to use. It's not static like Java and I love the exchanges in Stack Overflow.

    It is a great news that python can be used in SEO, but I actually expected to see some libraries which can be used in SEO instead of just telling the members of the commuity that python has such an opportunity to deal with SEO efficiently.

    Machine Learning is basically a methodology in which we want machines to learn right, and for machines to learn, we are ready to provide them previous data. We are ready to provide them past experiences, so that they can predict the upcoming events. So that they can predict what's going to happen in future right. So that's exactly the way we humans learn as well.

    For example, we learn how to cross a road by continuously looking at how exactly people are crossing the road right. Like for initial for sometime, we were not supposed to cross the road alone, but eventually we have learnt how to do it, by looking at a lot of examples. And basically that's exactly how we learn a lot of different things as well okay.

    So that's basically what Machine Learning is. So the idea is if machine has to get enough past data, it should to be able to pretty accurately predict what's going to happen in future okay.

  • Python is a high-level programming language that is often used for web development, data analysis, and machine learning. As such, it has several features that make it perfect for technical SEO purposes. For example, Python makes it easy to create automated tests and deploy them on multiple devices simultaneously. Additionally, its generic design means that it can be used to develop websites in a variety of languages (including Spanish), which can be valuable when targeting international markets.

    Machine Learning is the practice of using algorithms to improve or predict outcomes without explicitly programmed instructions. This technology can be applied to many different fields including search engine optimization (SEO). Machine learning algorithms are often trained on large datasets in order to learn how best to optimize sites.
