DuckDuckGo Has Its First Million-Search Day
The growth chart continues to trend in the right direction for DuckDuckGo.
It was just about three weeks ago that we wrote about the search engine setting its own record with 731,000 searches in a single day. To go from that to more than a million in a few weeks is impressive.
Via a tweet yesterday, DuckDuckGo announced that it had its first day with a million direct searches.
We received over 1,000,000 direct searches yesterday for the first time ever!duckduckgo.com/traffic.html

The milestone happened on February 13th when DuckDuckGo had 1,067,006 direct searches, according to its public traffic page.
Another way to look at the growth: A year ago, on February 13, 2011, DuckDuckGo reported having 176,000 direct searches. It had its first day with 500,000 searches on November 28, 2011.
