    At this point it looks like DuckDuckGo has less than a .01% market share. It is pretty low when AOL searches are on the radar, but DuckDuckGo is not. Everything has to start somewhere.

    Hmm, Bing has 10 percent of Google's share. Not bad considering. I may look more into what works with them.

    Very surprising that Yahoo lost some shares, I thought that Marissa Mayer did better.

    Google stilll the hot dog in search market, 80% is too much

    DuckDuckGo accounts for an estimated 0.1 percent of all search traffic, according to comScore. That's about 1 in 1000 searches.

    Bing is about 16% when you include Yahoo. So, you should expect to earn about 20% of what Google traffic would bring you. But still worth it in my opinion.

    Hi,

    DuckDuckGo is still small as they grow and add more to the search maybe they will get more of the market. Also the search results need to still be to be worked on.

    I personally have had high hopes in searchme.com a few years ago, but they didn't get anywhere, so my hopes are low for the duck.

    DuckDuckGo traffic is increasing to 1.7 million direct queries per day. But if you look at the numbers their search volume is still extremely low when you take into account their are about 18.2 billion searches per day.

    Their ads are syndicated by Bing. I don't think that any search engine will be able to take on Google until they bring the Publishers on board.
