LXer: Huge traffic spike hits ‘private’ search engines after NSA leaks

Published at LXer:

In the wake of National Security Agency leaks indicating the agency snoops on data by large tech companies, especially search engines like Google, some search competitors have seen an unprecedented spike in traffic. And — so far — have sustained it.DuckDuckGo, the oddly-named but “private” search engine, has seen its traffic numbers jump from about 1.7 million queries per day at the start of June (before NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s leaks) to more than 3 million over the past week. In this case “private” means it does not collect or share personal information, according to the company.
