Thanks for letting us know! This has been fixed : ) You may need to do a hard refresh, if your browser has been open. Ctrl+R should take care of it.

I see what you mean. Could be a caching issue--we'll look into it!

This should be fixed now but some might be cached for a day or two. Thanks for reporting in! 
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Traffic severely DECRESING. What you are going to do about it? 7 years and 4 months ago
Yes, there are brand awareness plans, however, I'm unsure what you mean, specifically. The large uptick in our traffic can be partially correlated with our site redesign and the privacy awareness that came with Google changing their privacy policy. With that, came a lot of good press and an increase in our user-base. It's still a little early to determine how many of those new users are long-term conversions, though. The decrease in users could be attributed to the small percentage of people who were trying DDG temporarily and have now moved on. We hope to retain as many of those people who were just trying us out by providing real privacy and a better search experience overall.

Beyond what we're planning internally, we're more than happy to field ideas from the Duck.co community, if someone wants to start a thread : ) I'd be interested to see what ideas get sparked.

Sorry, updated the link to go to the correct page (see "word of mouth")

Can't say that the traffic is linked with Google's release of, "knowledge graph"  ---that was released in may/june for most users. Doesn't seem to fit.

Our results are unbiased, regardless of advertising. Because of this, we would need another service to offer users at a premium. This is definitely not something we're considering, currently.

We're always working on increasing user growth but I wouldn't consider this a severe loss. As with all rapid growth, there are bound to be points of decline--the key part is rebounding : ) 

As always, the best way to convert users is through word of mouth
a reply to a comment on the General Rambling Android Widget? 7 years and 4 months ago
We're working on a complete refresh of the app and, in the meantime, you should be able to search DuckDuckGo through the Google widget, as long as it's enabled as a searchable item in the Google widget settings (Widget--->Settings-->Searchable Items-->DuckDuckGo).
