Does anyone have a list of ip ranges for ixquick, duckduckgo and startpage?

Recently these are starting to get attention due to the whole NSA scandel and I want to make sure the server farm blocks I have in place aren't inadvertently blocking them.

Tried searching this site but all the "I used ixquick to find" posts have polluted the results so badly I can't find anything useful. "startpage" obviously returns a ton of stuff about people's home pages!

ixquick and startpage are one and the same - they are "meta search engines" which means they don't do any crawling themselves as they are aggregating other search results.

Ixquick and startpage are the same company, they do not run any bots, they "digest" other search engines' results including Google's. Duckduckgo uses Yandex results though they crawl too. Startpage is the US version. Ixquick has the more useful results IMHO - they offer ways to use Google features without using Google.

duckduckgo will show up if you run tracerts.

Thanks all. I ran traceroutes on both, problem is that I was not certain if their crawling IPs were different thank what I get through traceroute.

Going to check my firewall and web logs now to make sure they aren't blocked.

Any other up and comers I'm missing in the privacy search field?
