How DuckDuckGo Rode A Wave Of Post-Snowden Anxiety To Massive Growth

How DuckDuckGo Rode A Wave Of Post-Snowden Anxiety To Massive Growth:

I recently linked to an article about DuckDuckGo and since then there’s been more and more coverage about the little search company. Since most people find out about them via word of mouth here’s my effort to get them more visible on the net.

Here’s another great little write up about DuckDuckGo this time from Fast Company:

As dramatic as DuckDuckGo’s growth has been, it still retains only a very tiny share of the search market, of which Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo collectively make up more than 90%. Still, it’s notable that DuckDuckGo has slowly inched its way toward the mainstream based primarily on word of mouth. If it wants to get serious about competing in the search space, this tiny startup is going to need to step up its game—and its income—pretty aggressively. But for now, Weinberg seems content to occupy this tiny corner of the market as he watches the tide of public attitude turn in his favor.

I’m glad to see that they have a sustainable source of revenue that’s set to keep them going for a while.
