Hello.  I think you code is Python 2.7.  My solution uses Python 3 but I can help you convert it if the solution is what you are looking for.  My approach as to create a class that tries to guess the right number.  This code also eliminates raw_input.  I didn't know how important having it respond via raw_input is to you.  Code follows:

import random
import sys

class Guesser():
    def __init__(self):
        self.low = 1
        self.high = 100
        
    def getRand(self,x,y):
        num = random.randint(x,y) 
        return num     
       
    def guess(self,guess,boundary):
        if boundary == ">":
            self.low = guess
        elif boundary == "<":
            self.high = guess
        else:
            self.low = 1
            self.high = 100
        return self.getRand(self.low,self.high)
    
    def playagain(self):
        choice = ['Y','N']
        return random.choice(choice)
       

run = 0

while run == 0: 
    guess=1
    guesses=0
    guessestaken = 0
    comp = Guesser()
    num = comp.getRand(1,100) 
    result = ""
    print ("I am thinking of a number between 1 and 100") 
    while guesses == 0: 
        guessestaken += 1
        try: 
            guess = comp.guess(guess,result) # replaces input
        except:  
            print("Unexpected error:", sys.exc_info()[0]) 
            raise
          
        print("Your guess:", guess)    
        if guess == num: 
            print('Correct! It took you', guessestaken, 'guesses!') 
            guesses = 1
        elif guess > num:
            print("My number is lower") 
            result = "<"
        else: 
            print("My number is higher") 
            result = ">"
    print("Do you want to play again?") 
    playagain = comp.playagain()    # replaces input
    print(playagain)
    if playagain == "N": 
        run = 1

Please let me know if you have questions or would like to discuss this solution further.

Cheers!
