Anonymous search tool DuckDuckGo answered 1bn queries in 2013
Until Edward Snowden's files detailing the extent of state surveillance, the search engine received around 1.5m queries per day. But in the weeks and months following the Guardian's publication of the NSA files, the number of users more than doubled.
By November, more than 4 million people were using the site every day, and on Tuesday 7 January the site had its biggest day so far, serving 4,452,957 queries in a 24-hour period.
We will ban you as soon as you try to do so DDG.:) yeah, some people just can't take a hint. Many companies have assumed that visitors would love previews. Excite failed, SearchMe failed, even Google ditched the previews. Why, you might be wondering...
DDG is the only serious challenger (if they can be called that) to Google.
considering that many professional webmasters have excluded all bots other than google and bing from indexing their websites - under these circumstances, will alternative search engines have a chance at all in the future?
the useful websites who were degraded by google's terrible algorithm updatesI am positive almost all were mostly degraded due to their content, and they deserved it, or terrible coding, and they deserved it, too.
and they deserved it
but don't they use the results, or the API, of other search engines
