DuckDuckGo added two new content providers to its "zero-click" search results:

  • local business listings from Yelp
  • and definitions from The Free Dictionary.

Zero-click results are similar to the "one box" or "quick answers" that other search engines offer. Do a search for a specific local business, and DuckDuckGo may show its basic business info from Yelp.

Here is an example:

Another addition to zero-click is definitions from The Free Dictionary. DuckDuckGo founder Gabriel Weinberg says this greatly expands the number of definitions in DDG's search results.

DuckDuckGo The Free Dictionary

DuckDuckGo has already been using Wikipedia for similar functionality. Other zero-click additions include emoticon explanations (like this example) and content from 13 additional StackExchange sites.
