If you use a browser like Chrome, that's not going to provide you any privacy because Chrome will still take cookies and provide your identity.

As well as using the DuckDuckGo search engine you can install their
browser privacy extension - 'DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials'
For Chrome - https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/duckduckgo-privacy-essent/bkdgflcldnnnapblkhphbgpggdiikppg
Also available for most other browsers. It should stop most advert tracking.

DuckDuckGo also has tutorials about privacy and tracking.
