DuckDuckGo, the privacy-focused search engine, is now heading to fewer than 100 million searches per day according to its public traffic stats page. In January 2021, DuckDuckGo achieved 100 million searches per day, and a year later, the search engine broke 1 billion searches.

Reject daily searches. But since April 2022, DuckDuckGo has reported fewer than 100 million searches per day. Here are the trends for 2022:

  • January 2022: 106 million searches per day
  • February 2022: 105.5 million searches per day
  • March 2022: 102.7 million searches per day
  • April 2022: 97.7 million searches per day
  • May 2022: 96.2 million searches per day
  • June 2022 (so far): 93.8 million searches per day

DuckDuckGo’s daily record of 1 day search queries was 111.7 million searches per day. DuckDuckGo is currently receiving 115 billion inquiries since its launch.

Why do we care. Is DuckDuckGo No Longer Growing? Is this a sign that DuckDuckGo is giving up on competing against Google? This is hard to say. Personally, I feel like I hear fewer DuckDuckGo commercials on the radio, and yes, I listen to the radio on the way to and from work. But there are still DuckDuckGo ads running, maybe not many?
