    Anyone using this? I've been using it a lot personally lately - I find it does a bit better job ranking relevant pages than Google. That being said, I'm sure it's an absolute nightmare to try and rank on it.

    Comparing the results from a few basic queries, Google/Yahoo/Bing all come in pretty close, and then DDG is way off the charts. First Result is an EDM, then wiki, amazon, then several actual authority sites for the niche - no IM sites trying to sell me anything, or invading niches with shit sites.

    DuckDuckGo was getting 10mill searches a day a little over a year ago - I'd put them around 40-50mill a day now? It's huge, just not huge in comparison.

    Why can't you open without proxy?

    Some of DuckDuckGo users really seem to love it but it don't have much of a market share.

    I have 2 sites ranking first on DuckDuckGo since 2 years and the same is around 5-10 in Google all year around but I don't get a single visit from DuckDuckGo, so there you go.

    I love DDG, it's way more accurate than Google or Bing, been using it for ages now, i don't care about their market share, i care about their results and they are great, but the masses will never hear of them of course zo it will never be a player in the SE market.....
