This is a nice trial and keep up the good work! Don't sell yourselves as did all others before you! ...and stop smashing Google, may their practices be as outrageous as they are, as it looks like bad character, by which most good-hearted people will be put off! ...and doesn't really help promote the site since it smells a bit like envy.
- Consider changing the BRAND NAME for a two syllable one! My suggestion is "DuckNGo". You'll see the results for yourself soon if you do.- The "fixtracking" site is very helpful, but most people wouldn't bother to read this much. People who use the internet for search etc. do so because they want what they are looking for fast. Do an easy step-by-step "QuickFix" tutorial for all OS's and all browsers, including brief info on and how to update a hosts file. /You may even want to provide an essentials and pro hosts file download./- If people could see thumbnails next to the links when searching for videos or images not to mention a button to search for these specifically, the majority who are concerned about their security and privacy but like convenience, would jump over straight away.- You have a lot of space on the left an right, so you could float some security and privacy related widgets and on the other side a video and image preview bar. Don't be afraid it'd "look like google" etc.! It won't. This is a search engine, where people expect to find stuff, which they expect the site to show them as quick as possible – hence, there will be pictures and videos on your page, either vertically or horizontally, period. That won't make the site look like a copy of other search engines!Otherwise, I like any type of freedom-preserving initiatives, that enforce people's unalienable rights to absolute privacy.
PS.: If you would offer essential security classes in a “floating” widget box in form of 2-3 minute videos, also including a quick and simple tutorial at a time and maybe issue some funny “certificates” to registered users, the site would pick up tremendously quick! :) ...If I was in charge over your marketing development, I would even suggest you to offer basic email addresses to registered users.
Also, if you ever think of advertising, here's a nice slogan “Find what YOU expected...DuckNGo!” ...the picture would be a small pond with a duck's butt sticking out of the water... :)
