Thanks for your feedback. The use of a G API is not on the drawing board for DDG. One thing that we often encourage our users to do is to use the [https://i.snag.gy/xhZ2lY.jpg] button. The cumulative information gathered helps the DDG developers to provide higher quality search results for all users.

Also, you may want to check out DDG's Syntax page, which may help you get results that are more helpful to you.

Thanks
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Broken Duck? 10 months and 17 days ago
Cool, thanks for the details. I just broke out my copy of FF, verified that it's current and ran a test search:
[https://i.snag.gy/KeWvxo.jpg]
So, we need to figure out why you are getting different results. Here are some thoughts:

  • Look at the DDG URL in your address bar and verify that it is https://duckduckgo.com/... and not https://duckduckgo.com/html/...
  • Try testing using FF in Safe Mode, just in case an extension or plug-in is causing the issue
  • Finally, just for giggles, go to the DDG settings page and click on the Reset All Settings button.[\list]

    Let us know what you find.

If you have custom settings (themes, colors, etc.) the check mark will be replaced and visited web pages are represented by a changed title color.

Thanks for the input. Actually, I not seen this request before and I find it interesting. I would suggest adding the keyword web to proceed your search terms.

Thanks

If your DDG language is not set to French, check your OS and\or browser's default language. I set my browser's language to French and the autosuggest results were in French. Returning to English gave English results (following browser restart).

Thanks for contacting us and for your comments.

And also make the search engine favorable for finding meanings and words. thats what search engine for.
While one use of a search engine might be to obtain a word definition, one might argue that the primary purpose is to locate web pages that match the user's search criteria. It is somewhat difficult for the search engine to ascertain if user is looking for a word definition based on a single word in the search field.

There are however, ways to help assure that you will receive word definitions when that is what you are looking for:
- Precede your search with the word meaning which should force the Meaning (Definition) Instant Answer.
- Precede your search with !di which will launch the Dictionary !bang.

And then ads ofcourse.
Users have the option of removing ads from DDG's search results.

Thanks!
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Option to replace Wikipedia search results with Infogalactic 11 months and 3 days ago
DDG doesn't have an option to replace results as you've described, however we do have a !bang for Infoglactic, which is !infog . So, for example, to search for Infogalactic for "X-15", use:
!info X-15

I hope that this helps.
