DuckDuckGo Grew By 46% In 2021
The privacy-focused search engine DuckDuckGo continues to grow rapidly, with the company now averaging over 100 million daily search queries and growing by almost 47% in 2021.
Unlike other search engines, DuckDuckGo says they do not track your searches or your behavior on other sites. Instead of building user profiles used to display interest-based ads, DuckDuckGo search pages display contextual advertisements based on the searched keywords.
This means that if you search on DuckDuckGo for a television, that search query will not be used to display television ads at every other site you visit.
