Please read the information in the OP of this thread.

Ranking is a bit opaque and difficult to discern/communicate on an individual query basis because of all the various factors involved (and which change frequently).

Nevertheless, the best way to get good rankings (in pretty much all search engines) is to get links from high quality sites like Wikipedia.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Is affiliate tracking a privacy violation? 3 years and 4 months ago
Hello and thanks for the comments. I think that it's important to note that you have responded to a 5 year old thread, so much has changed since Yegg posted this information.

Anyway, now that DDG is serving me Yahoo rather than Yandex results, I'm more confident on this point.
As has been stated by Yegg and others, DDG has used Yahoo! as one of it's sources since the beginning. DDG used results from multiple other sources including Bing, Yandex and others (in fact, this was one of the reasons that date filtering was so difficult, because the various sources provided dissimilar data formatting).

Regarding the how DDG currently works with affiliates to generate revenue, please read: https://duck.co/help/company/advertising... and also https://duckduckgo.com/privacy#s4 .

does DDG have platform other than google?
Let me begin by saying that there is absolutely no connection between DDG and !G.

I believe that when you say "platform" you are refering to the browser that you use. DDG works with any web browser, many of which do no track your online activity. A few examples are Firefox, Epic, Opera and Pale Moon. Additionally, most browsers have optional add-ons (extensions) that can help to enhance your online privacy.
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling cannot access duckduckgo (only site that is down for me) 3 years and 4 months ago
I've had this happen before, especially when I've entered in a lot of searches in a short amount of time. DDG has some protection built in for things like DOS attacks and it's possible that you've crossed this threshold. The good news it that this is a temporary block and you'll be able to connect to DDG again in a short time.

Thanks!

Hi,
Thanks for contacting us and let me assure you that DuckDuckGo does not install itself or any software on any computers without the user's consent.

Using Chrome, please open this DDG page which explains how DDG can be installed. You can use the same steps to find and remove DDG from your list of search providers.

Thanks
