The DuckDuckGo, the competitor of Google or, in other words, the Anti-Google Search Engine, which previously we did not talk about enough, was first treated to 12 million queries in one day.
If DuckDuckGo is often described as anti-Google, this is because, unlike the Mountain View company Google search engine, this start-up is not taking your data. The Data is only accepted by the giant search engine, which we regularly use as our prime search engine Google.
DuckDuckGo, The Anti-Google Search Engine Just, Reached a New Milestone
Hence, Google monitors its service through ads, but they are less targeted. The only information used by DucDuckDuckGo pubs canto displays the queries entered by users. Just by the keywords by the users, search the results are also with the exact search, even if it does not track cookies, Cached, or the History of the user’s browser.
This anti-tracking initiative had not been a success. But from the moment Edward Snowden revealed the secret activities of the NSA, things have improved significantly for DuckDuckGo (yeah, sure, read again what I said). The number of requests has increased by 33% just after the moment.
In June, DuckDuckGo had already crossed 10 million queries per day queries. Moreover, this figure has just increased since today we learn that the search engine has crossed 12 million daily questions.
DuckDuckGo statistics also show that this year, it handled 3.25 billion queries, which represents a 74% increase compared to the previous year’s figures. (That’s Awesome, But the Reality is it would not matter for Google?)
Besides the fact that Internet users finally cared about how their data are processed for two years, DuckDuckGo also benefited from new partnerships signed with Mozilla and Apple.
Otherwise, it should be noted that although he refuses to have the same practices as Google, DuckDuckGo is already making profits; yes, that’s true. And the company’s CEO, Gabriel Weinberg, stop to think it is necessary to collect information about users to monetize a search engine: “You type car, and you see an advertisement for a car, Google follows you on all these sites because it operates huge advertising networks and other properties. So they need these data for search engines to follow you.”
