Why a one account for all Streaming Services would be a great idea

Since 2011, Netflix has become one of the most powerful companies in the world, boasting a worldwide user base of nearly 150 million. Between 2011 and 2015, Netflix and other streaming services penetrated the global market so effectively that piracy plummeted roughly 50%.

However, for the first time in years, that trend line is changing. In 2018, global piracy went up.

Global piracy rate is a useful indicator for the health of the streaming market because it highlights a key value of streaming providers: convenience. Netflix proved that even in a world where piracy is accessible and relatively low-risk, users are willing to pay for convenience. No one wants to search dodgy corners of the internet to stream The Office if they don't have to.

The migration of users from streaming services back to piracy indicates that streaming services are no longer offering the same level of convenience they used to. There are two major reasons for this.

The first is market segmentation. If you want to watch WestworldAtlanta, and The Marvelous Mrs Maisel, you'll need to subscribe to some combination of HBO, Hulu, and Amazon Prime. As major streaming services invest in exclusive content (Netflix budgeted $13 billion for original content in 2018), users are forced to sign up for multiple services or miss out. As producers like Disney launch their own exclusive streaming services, the problem only grows.

The second is international licensing. International licensing for media is a nightmare, and for streaming services, it presents a massive bottleneck. While Netflix users in the U.S. enjoy thousands of streamable movies, users in Portugal get by with a couple hundred. In countries with strict censorship laws like Saudi Arabia, numbers become even smaller.

These forces converge to make individual streaming services less convenient—and therefore less valuable—to users, making the trade-offs of piracy more worthwhile. And while that may not spell the end for streaming services, it does signal that we may be seeing the end of streaming's golden age.

There seems to be a need for One Account for all streaming services in this world. But such a program will require a lot of money to put it in action. Paying royalties to streaming services and playing it through their application (maybe). Such a thing seems only possible by a joint effort. Hopefully, someday these big players will realize and work together on something like it.

What's Domain Authority and how you can increase it

Domain authority is one of the many factors(yet a very important one) which affects the placement of your website's content in searches.
Although Search Engine Optimisation(SEO) plays a very crucial role in making your content accessible in search results Domain Authority covers an entirely different aspect.
It states a level of importance of the Webpage or website, in turn describing how reliable is the website or webpage.

How to increase your Domain Authority?

  1. Quality Content
  2. Search Engine Optimisation
  3. Internal Linking
  4. High-Quality Backlinks
  5. Regular Updates
  6. Avoid Broken Links
To check your Domain Authority you can head to Moz website and also you can have their addon installed to keep a track of Domain Authority of any webpage you visit.
Domain Authority is also a viable way to research your competition. 
You'll always have a better chance over a website with lower Domain Authority compared to your website.

Here's how you can increase the Domain Authority of your blog or website.

1. Write Quality Content.
You see searched only exists because of all the information that is available online. You cannot expect to have thousands of visitors for no content. Also, you cannot expect visitors for some content that makes no sense or isn't good enough compared to others.
You need to have quality content, submit to Google Search console and hope for best.

2. Search Engine Optimization
SEO is something you just have to spend a one-time effort on. Most of the time you don't even have to worry about it. If you're running on Wordpress make sure your theme is properly optimized for Search Crawlers. If you're on Blogspot, there's not much to do but use a proper theme for your blog. You can always switch to the Blogspot theme I designed specifically keeping SEO in mind.

3. Internal Linking
It's pretty much self explanatory. Internal linking refers to cross-linking the blog content wherever possible.
Mostly it reduces the Bounce rate and also helps your users to be on the same page as the writer.

4. Quality Backlinks
It's always a good idea to have backlinks. They're not dead. It affects your search positioning. Not clearly but it does affect it. But be aware not to have backlinks from toxic pages. 

5. Regular Updates
There is no reason for a search crawler to crawl a blog that is not being updated. When you're not posting anything you're at a loss of content compared to blogs that are updating.
You lose a place over time. And ultimately the authority. The more content you have better it is.

6. Avoid Broken Links
Broken links are a no go. Use Google Webmaster tool to keep a check on any broken link you might have.

I'm going to increase the visitors on my blog and here's how

Up until now, I've been blogging on what so ever I feel like writing. Turns out it's not a healthy habit for blogging. As I previously explained how following a niche helps your blog it also inversely affects it if a niche is not being followed. So I plan to fix that and by posting more content on a certain topic and let the define the niche of my blog.
I did my research and found that people(other bloggers) tend to interact more with posts that are SEO or blogging based. The reason is obvious to get better backlinks and traffic of the same niche.

I plan to do it by doing little research on similar web pages and mostly throw KWFinder.
For those who don't know, KWfinder is an easy way for researching keywords you can target for better search result placement.
KWfinder gives free five searches for a day.
Also, you can do keyword research using Google Adwords.
