As always, the speakers served up some flaming hot content (including an actual movie). We can’t wait to share some of these takeaways with you! Britney Muller — Accessible Machine Learning Workflows for SEOs Britney started off by assuring everyone that they absolutely can use machine learning.

There's endless possibilities w/ #machinelearning : Some cool things: - AI-generated faces - Auto-excuse generator (need that) Leveraging for SEO: - Keyword research - Forecasting time series - Extracting entities and categories from URLs - Internal link analysis #mozcon — Seer Interactive (@SeerInteractive) July 15, 2020 Britney suggests starting with a notebook in Colaboratory for increased accessibility. She showed us to do the basics like upload, import, and download data before jumping into the fun stuff: Using Google NLP API to extract entities and their categories from URL Using Facebook’s Prophet data for time-series predictions Keyword research using Search Console Data and a filtering function Honestly, we were surprised at how easy she made machine learning look. Can’t wait to try it ourselves! Izzi Smith — How to Be Ahead of the (CTR) Curve Not all clicks are created equal! While you may want as many clicks as possible from the SERP, there’s a specific type of click you should be striving for — the almighty long click. “What is a click without the intent to be there?” Google’s patent clearly states that reactions to search results are gauged, and short interactions (clicks) can lower rankings while longer interactions (clicks) can lead to higher rankings. Great point by the wonderful @izzionfire - focus on the "long clicks" - the ones where users spend a long time on your page after clicking your result. Google tends to show answers for the "short clicks" within the SERP - if it doesn't now, it will soon. #MozCon pic.twitter.com/mCvWUpDTKQ …
