Yesterday, I introduced you to the private DuckDuckGo search engine. (Click here to read that article.)

Today, we’ll check out a neat feature of the search engine called Bangs. Bangs are shortcuts that take you to search results on other websites. Let’s learn how they work.

Look for the three-line menu icon at the left side of DuckDuckGo.com.

Click on Bang Search Shortcuts.

When the Bangs page opens, scroll down to the search box.

I can type in a site like Wikipedia.

Then select your shortcut from the results.

You can also click on categories to browse. There are nearly 14,000 Bangs to choose from.

Once you click on a Bang, all of your search results will be on that page.

Here’s what happened when I searched for me on Amazon.
