What Can RoboCop Teach You About Good SEO Content

So it’s 1:45 AM and I can’t seem to sleep because I’m watching Hulu. Specifically, I’m watching RoboCop 2. I can’t seem to stop watching and I’m a bit concerned that I’ll have lost some sleep tonight. I tried to justify watching this movie logically and the only thing that my logic has come up with is something I wanted to share.

Even though RoboCop was made YEARS ago before visual effects had a chance to evolve properly (also 3 years after I was born), I think the overall meat of the movie was very well-done.  Some may agree…others might disagree, but I personally don’t think I’d waste time by watching this old movie if I didn’t find it entertaining.

Let’s try this…think of any movie classic that you would watch.

  • Goonies
  • Ghostbusters
  • Rocky 1-4
  • Honey, I shrunk the kids

There are so many more, but let’s hurry up and wrap up this post so I can get back to my movie!

RoboCop schools us with a lesson in SEO

When you sit down to write the content for your website, it would behoove you to take the time and really do your research to make sure you’re putting great content out on the internet.  Not only does great content get stuck in people’s heads, it makes you the go-to source in your industry, it allows you to get your content indexed along with obtaining a swarm of links to your site. I mean, can you imagine how successful of a link bait campaign this would’ve been if RoboCop was nothing more than link bait from the government to gain some awareness for police officers?

If you stop and just think about how old RoboCop is, just imagine what great content can do for you in the next week, the next month, the next year, or even in the next 10 years!

Well, this is a rather short post and I hope you were entertained.  What are your favorite old school, classic movies not on the list above??
