I was reading an article in Macworld.com. There I have seen a link to apple official site. Then I clicked on Inspect option Then I have found this.

What is this automate_uuid ? Is this any SEO trick?

Good find bro, I have no idea what this is, but here the “_uuid” is “universally unique identifier (UUID).” According to Wikipedia, it’s a 128-bit number used to identify information in computer systems. Maybe they are using this for some tracking purposes?

These big names like Macworld, business insider, and others use coding for the appearance. They don’t use platforms like WordPress(ppl like us use it). is that correct?

Not sure bro, most of the popular ‘blogs’ use WordPress, but at the same time, some of them opted for custom platforms for better functionality. :slight_smile:
