Search Engine: DuckDuckGo

Access to powerful research engine add to PM World Library

10 June 2019 – Dallas, London, Sydney – Access to a new resource that may be of interest to researchers has been added to the PM World Library (PMWL).  The resource is titled “DuckDuckGo” and is one of the most popular and powerful search engines on the internet.

According to Wikipedia, DuckDuckGo (DDG) is an Internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers' privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. DuckDuckGo distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users and by showing all users the same search results for a given search term.  It emphasizes returning the best results, rather than the most results.

Based in Pennsylvania, USA, DuckDuckGo positions itself as a search engine that puts privacy first. It does not store IP addresses, does not log user information, and uses cookies only when required. DuckDuckGo does not collect or share personal information. The quality of search engine results is improved by deleting search results for companies that may be content mills.

To try out this research engine, go to the P/PM Research Resources section of the library at, click on Search Engines. Must be registered Trial or Professional Member and logged in to access.
