a reply to a comment on the General Rambling No-click search for official sites 3 years and 8 months ago
Actually that would not be a bad idea. Since the \ operator will also take you to non-official pages if you query does not trigger an official site, which would obviously be unwanted behaviour if you're looking for the specific official site.

There could be an operator that would either automatically redirect to an official site or simply display regular results if there is no official site found for that query (basically ignore the operator but still try to provide a useful response).
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Slogan or mention of search engine with privacy on homepage 3 years and 8 months ago
The slogan is on the front page of duckduckgo.com. Just underneath the searchbar it says "The search engine that doesn't track you."

Or do you mean something different?
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling No-click search for official sites 3 years and 8 months ago
In my experience the links that are tagged as official will always be the first relsult. Therefore by adding a backslash (\) to the beginning of a query will take you to the official site (provided an official site is actually found for you query). "\" is the "i'm feeling ducky" operator, it will automatically take you to the first search result.

It's perhaps not as elegant, but it's the closest thing we've got right now.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Website Exclusion List for searches 3 years and 8 months ago
It's not really the same thing, but if someone wants to exclude reults from specific sites it can be on a per query basis using the search syntax (moved to https://duck.co/help/results/syntax).

The "-" and "site:" operators can be used together. So appending "-site:wikipedia.org" to the end of the query will exclude all results from wikipedia.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Lock search results to a specific country and language 3 years and 9 months ago
In the advanced settings pane there there are options for both "Português de Portugal" and "Português de Brasil", so make sure that one is set correctly, in addition to the region. Although with that specific example you gave there didn't seem to be much difference in the results between the two language choices.

There is a way to limit the search to just sites that have a .pt domain by adding "site:pt" to the end of the query eg. "bom bocado site:pt". That's probably not the best solution though, and it will also exclude all Pt-pt results from sites with a .com domain name, but it's the best I can come up with.

Cheers!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling putting older articles in the bottom of the search 3 years and 9 months ago
It should perhaps be noted, tough, that the date sorted search uses a smaller index for the search. The quality of the returned results will therefore not always be on the same level as one would expect from a regular search.

There is the "sort:date" syntax which will list results so that newer content is at the top. Eg. query "ubuntu tablets sort:date".

Currently you can also use "s:d" as a short-hand if typing both words feels too long. For the complete (I believe) syntax check out the syntax page

Hopefully that helps!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling What happened to the old DuckDuckGoodies page? 3 years and 9 months ago
I can't say that I've been around long enough to know about a previous list of goodies, but there is a work-in-progress version of such a list at https://duck.co/ia/
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Vote for search results. 3 years and 9 months ago
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?
