Hi there 👋

Last week we learned of the shocking and sad news of the passing of Hamlet Batista. 😔

I never got to meet Hamlet but he was always very supportive of my newsletter, warm, kind and generous with his time.

He was responsible for almost single-handedly carving a new facet of SEO in using Python for SEO automation. And in the process has moved our industry forward and inspired a new generation of SEOs.

Hamlet was one of the most featured authors of The Weekly SEO. This issue includes all of his articles I curated since I started the newsletter.

The industry has lost a good one but his work will continue to inspire. 🔥

Lily Ray, a close friend of Hamlet, has set up a fundraiser in memory of him. Please consider donating to help his family out during this difficult time.
