What we should do :-) ?

Don't trust a page that titles "All time high for JavaScript" and won't even display text when Javascript is disabled ;-)

Ok, let's try to stay serious for a moment... have you read what they actually measure?

From what I understand they simply search "perl programming", "C++ programming" etc. with some search engines, and look at the results. So what does that actually mean? It's a quantitative metric, but does it actually mean something?

IMHO it just means that some people have written some websites that programming language; so all it does is measuring the PR efforts. And yes, Perl can improve in that respect. But I hesitate to draw any other conclusions from these charts.

What we should do :-) ?

There are two answers here:

  • Blog about Perl, or do other things to improve the public image of Perl
  • Ignore shitty metrics.
