How much do google's search rankings affect other sites like duckduckgo and startpage?

StartPage sources its result from Google.

I've got no idea if DDG is effected. I'm completely pulling the following out of my ass (in contrast to partially as I did above) , but seeing as Google is the "bawz" of search engines I guess Yandex and other sources DDG uses could take a cue from Google. Thereby affected search result.

Wouldn't put the last part forward as an argument in a debate though. I'm just speculating.
