The DuckDuckGo search engine now generates more than 30 million searches per day. DuckDuckGo announced yesterday that it showed an increase in searches of the order of 50% in just one year.
"It took us seven years to reach 10 million private searches a day, then another two years to reach 20 million, and now in less than a year we're at 30 million," DuckDuckGo said in a statement. a tweet.
The DuckDuckGo publish its traffic statistics, and you can see the rapid growth of the company over the last four years.
DuckDuckGo uses search engines such as Bing, crowdsourced websites such as Wikipedia and its own crawler to index the search results. Results do not aggressively search for sites like other search engines, and are not as up-to-date as Google or Bing results.
DuckDuckGo also uses a method to prevent searches from leaking so sites you visited through the search engine do not know what you were looking for.
With daily reports of data leaks from large corporations, due to sales or due to errors, it's no surprise that services like DuckDuckGo are adopted by too many users.
