I would imagine that clicking through on a search result is as good as voiting it to be the one that seems the most relevant. I would also assume that pretty much all modern search engines take user clickthrough rates into account when ranking search results, right?

This would cause abuse and burst black seo techniques to rank at first page. Since duckduckgo does not track in any matter, it would be hard to detect real user vs bot.
