In the wake of the NSA and Prism exposure, is now the time for a resurgence of the independent search engines?
This may just be a temporary boost: DuckDuckGo is reporting a 2 million to 3 million [twitter.com] jump in traffic over only a few days since the Prism story broke.
That's a small number compared to google, of course, but it's the rapid growth that caught my eye.
Talk of a "the return of lycos [webmasterworld.com]" may just be a marketing initiative.
Is this the opportunity for the independent search engines to start making inroads?
