To scrape data I write a python script to get all the video links of each channel(there are about 15), then found some google app script made with youtube api in google and customized that for my need. I ran the app script to get the like, view, and title. After that, I wrote another Python script that reads the data in excel(xlsx) and writes the date data to excel by using xlswriter to write&read excel and selenium to scrape.

Then I cleaned the data by replacing Turkish characters, filling NA values, changing date format, making all of them same etc. Somehow excel did not change the date format. Then I found this video to change data text to column.

In final data was ready to visualize in jupyter notebook. It is better if you read this blog on pc.

Here is the visualization:

Webrazzi has the most videos by far among all channels. There are 6659 videos and webrazzi has most of them.

Wordcloud of the titles

First, I removed stop words by using nltk.corpus library and chose Turkish as a language. Then I realized there are still some words&characters that needed to be removed like “ile”, “?” removed them manually. After cleaning titles I created another column called clean title.

Wordcloud with custom font and background

I thought it looks better with coolvetica and dark theme. Looks cool! (Also Andrew recommends to implementing dark mode always)
