    Matt, thanks :). Your numbers are a bit off though.

    https://duckduckgo.com/?q=20000000%2F18000000000*100 ~ it’s about .1% :).

    However, I think the 18B is circumspect myself. Notice in our numbers we take out API requests and Bot requests. I’ve written a bit more of that here: http://www.gabrielweinberg.com/blog/2011/06/on-weird-botnet-traffic.html

    I prefer Gigablast~ if it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck…

    Oh gosh, Gabriel — I compared your number at the daily level against the comScore monthly total. Yeesh. How embarrassing! You’re correct. Even using the 18 billion number, when that’s broken down to a daily number, DDG has about 0.1% as you suggest. I’ll update the post. And then remove the egg from my face….

    Thanks Matt. It’s still small but only an order of magnitude away from probably being on the big board! We’ve come so many orders of magnitude all ready it doesn’t actually feel that far away :)
