NSA PRISM Leaks Boost Private Search Engines: StartPage And Ixquick Pass 4 Million Daily Searches

• ibtimes.com
  IBTimes previously reported on DuckDuckGo, a private search engine that has saw traffic spike to more than 3 million daily searches in the days following the original PRISM leaks.
 

DuckDuckGo isn’t the only site enjoying the newfound success. Two other private search engines, StartPage and Ixquick, both owned by Netherlands-based Surfboard Holding BV, have seen their daily traffic shoot from 2.8 million searches to 4.2 million, and increasing every day.

“We are the world’s first and largest private search engine,” Dr. Katherine Albrecht, a representative of StartPage and Ixquick and consumer privacy expert, told IBTimes. “We did privacy before privacy was cool.”
