Montreal, 2020, July 28th – Dataïku just released an Oncrawl plugin, fruit of collaboration between their teams, which is the first ever technical SEO plugin integrated into a major data science and machine learning platform, making SEO data available for strategic decision-making.
Connecting technical SEO and machine learning
Machine learning is a form of AI that uses a set of data to “train” a computer to improve its recognition of trends in order to predict future data points or to categorize new input data. It has been used by Google for several years now to deliver a better user experience.
Machine learning, like technical SEO, is essential to strategic decision-making in forward-looking companies today. Due to the complexity of today’s markets, the growing opacity of search engine ranking algorithms, and the sheer volume of data available affecting SEO, the ability to easily manipulate and analyze data now makes the difference between SEO as a marketing tool, and SEO as executive-level product strategy.
“I have no doubt that data science will become a strong asset for every digital marketer, especially SEO specialists. This technology makes reliable decisions based on actual data possible, bringing a real competitive advantage to all companies that use it.”
Vincent Terrasi, Product Director @Oncrawl

This partnership will allow SEO experts to access more reliable data prediction and to automate a part of their work, saving them a lot of time and resources and helping them get the support they need from their C-suite.
