Netflix wants people to watch Orange is the New Black, but not on piracy websites that are hosted in countless countries. The Silicon Valley company is trying to find ways to improve SEO and point users towards Netflix, instead of finding the streams elsewhere on the Internet.

Unfortunately for Netflix, it looks like it's extremely easy to use Google, Yahoo, and other search engines to find illegal streams of the hit series. Recently, Orange is the New Black was the No. 4 most searched for term on Google, and chances are extremely high that plenty of Internet users found their way to third-party sites.

 

How serious of an issue is piracy for Netflix? It's the top competitor in terms of content providers, as the online video service fights for more paying subscribers.
