Privacy-Focused Search Engine DuckDuckGo Hits 30 Million Daily Searches, a 50% Increase From Last Year

The Infinite Brief
Privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo hit 30 million daily searches, a year-on-year increase of 50%.

DDG’s search engine offers a pro-privacy alternative to Google search that does not track and profile users in order to target them with ads.

DDG says it has been profitable using its non-tracking business model since 2014, also making money from affiliate revenue.

It does not break out active user metrics but earlier this year cited third party estimates which peg its user-base at around 25M.
