Searching anything on DuckDuckGo is completely anonymous. DuckDuckGo is also available in Tor browser.

When you something search on Startpage, it sends request to Google server and show result next to you. Google sees a huge amount of search results from “Ixquick (Startpage)” server – so, they can’t track your result or tie any searches.
