Two ads?

Is DDG experimenting with having 2 ads in the result page? In my opinion I think the one-ad idea is better because it contributes less to the sense of clutter as seen on Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ixquick/startpage.

There's no plan to add another ad, afaik.

Apparently you're wrong!
I wish I can get clarification on this. Sometimes the two ads shows up, other times it doesn't. Exactly what is the plan for DDG?

Per: https://duck.co/help/company/advertising...

We currently only show up to 2 ads, as opposed to the many you'll find on other search engines.

I believe that you can get 2 ads when one in from Amazon (as DDG is an affiliate) and the other is a more general ad match.
