Nearly 30 million searches are entered every day in the search box of DuckDuckGo
. Unlike Google
, this search engine does not collect user data and does not use personalized advertising. This, and probably the steadily growing list of data scandals has been assisting a sustained upward trend for the past few years. In 2015, the milestone of ten million searches in one day was cracked for the first time. Two years later, it was already 20 million and in October 2018 it is almost at 30 million. Nevertheless, compared to Google, these are still very small figures - according to Techcrunch
, the search giant handles at least three billion search requests a day.
