What If Famous Movies Had SEO Optimised Titles? (2022)

Blog Listing Page / SEO / What If Famous Movies Had SEO Optimised Titles? (2022)

Our movie-watching habits have shifted dramatically in the last two years. With the Oscars approaching, the majority of this year’s nominations were solely viewed on the internet.

After all, it’s one of the main ways we’re used to getting all of the binge-worthy content right now.

This means SEO and film are becoming a bit of a thing.

Almost two years ago at the start of the pandemic, we witnessed Warner Bros. rename the Harley Quinn movie from “Birds of Prey” to “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey” for better SEO – how can we forget.

And with even more movies reaching digital platforms this year, we thought we’d continue our own SEO fun.

Behold! Our amazing list of Famous Movies With SEO Optimised Titles (2022)!
