Success of the DuckDuckGo search engine

Success of the DuckDuckGo search engine

DuckDuckGo is one of the participants in the competition between search engines for a user. As of today, the number of requests made by DuckDuckGo visitors has exceeded 30 million per day.

Many similar resources would like to boast of the same achievement. However, this is just a small fragment of the search traffic that the Google system has per day. So every day Internet users perform 3,5 billion queries with the help of this search giant. This means that in order for DuckDuckGo to catch up with Google, users must use this alternative search engine more than 100 times more often.

The DuckDuckGo search engine (DDG) was developed and launched in 2008 in Pennsylvania (in Valley-Forge, USA). Its creators claim that they first of all took care of the confidentiality of information about their users and do not collect any information about them. The resource with the goose's head in the logo was created on the basis of open source software. But the lack of profiling makes the search is not as precise as, for example, in Yandex or Google. Despite this, as can be seen from the above traffic indicators, many people are already happy to use the DDG search engine. For example, using it, you will easily be able to find the web-studio of Alexander Ivanov, engaged in search engine promotion of sites.

At the same time, it is possible that the increased interest in the DuckDuckGo search engine is associated with a recent scam concerning the detection of data leaks from the Google+ social network.


The main features of the DuckDuckGo search engine:


improved search engine for user queries, including images and videos, while maintaining the privacy of the visit;

the presence of direct responses to any queries in the results of the issue;

the ability to search directly on other resources (for example, Wikipedia, FaceBook, Amazon);

configuring the appearance of the service.
