So I sent this email to DuckDuckGo:
Hi, please pass this on to somebody (marketing or engineer) who will understand the details here.
I'm an SEO, started in 1994 - more accurately I'm a webmaster. Right now, as you're probably aware, Google is killing off a lot of small businesses.
There's a whole hell of a lot of horror going on.
A boat load of webmasters are desperately seeking out an alternative, the most common comment is 'Bing' - but nobody really trusts Microsoft any more than they trust 'Google'.
Get in there, start commenting - make yourself known now.
Be: GOOD GUY 'DUCKDUCKGO'
Unless you're a webmaster, you may not understand the significance of what's going down. SMEs are being shredded, people are losing their jobs / houses / lives. We need an alternative.
Remember: We're the same guys who promoted Google back in the day, we installed them on 100,000s of computers at offices / schools / universities. We're a good bunch of people to have on your side. We're all extremely tech-aware, and we're not going anywhere - even if Google kills us all off.
You should take a look.
This was the reply:
Thanks for your email. We are a hybrid search engine as mentioned here: [help.duckduckgo.com...]
