Just over a week ago, we reported that indie search engine DuckDuckGo had passed 2 million searches in a single day. Impressive, given that they finally passed 1 million daily searches in February 2012 after struggling far on the margins of the search engine competition for several years.
Was DuckDuckGo's milestone a fluke? Hardly, as a recent tweet from DuckDuckGo indicates that the site passed 3 million daily searches on June 17th, less than a week after hitting 2 million in a day. Should Google be scared?
