Not cookies.

If you accept a DDG cookie, that's for settings only - your search queries are not associated with you or the cookie.

I would lean towards coincidence, but would be very interested in any other examples of this happening.

Unless it's cookies created by the web sites that you visit following a search (?). Possibly the sites visited use !G Analytics.

Yeah, good call.

Sorry, just wanted to be clear that our cookie is for settings alone.

Thanks for the response. The site did use google analytics. Since I did visit the merchant website after my ddg search, it might have stored cookies which the news site got access to. Love DDG. Cheers.
