Does anyone know of a similar list for DDG?



Hmmmm, I can't find anything nearly as comprehensive. But, that could be because DDG doesn't have all that many.

I think the coolest thing about DDG are the 'Bang' searches: https://duckduckgo.com/bang

I'd use if the typical browsers didn't already have that feature built-in.

EDIT: It occurs to me that they don't on mobile, so I guess it's useful there.


If you set it up yourself. But DDG has literally thousands already set up.


I thought I could set them up myself on DDG, but I see now that the keywords are the same for everyone. I guess this means I can't use super short keywords for the sites I frequent most. That's a shame. For example, in Firefox I just prefix my search query with "s" to search stackage.org.

Also, even if they have thousands, I don't think it would be too hard to find a site they don't support. Who knows how long they'd take to add the keyword on request, if they decide to add it.

Pros and cons. No solution is perfect. I guess I'd find DDG's feature more useful if I relied more on my phone for such searches or used random computers I can't setup for myself.


Depends on your mobile browser. If it's Firefox, then yes you do.


Thanks for the links. I did not know about "inurl" and "intitle" these will be handy helping me re-find results which is something I find myself doing a lot more than I would expect.


'!g' is probably the most used command on DDG
