What are the TIOBE ranking criteria?
The TIOBE ranking is an index of popularity of programming languages. It is updated monthly and is based on queries from the 100 most searched programming languages on search engines such as Google, Bing, Baidu, Amazon, YouTube and Wikipedia. It establishes a ranking of languages by assigning a score according to their use by developers. The objective of the TIOBE index is not to designate the best programming language, but to identify those which are currently the most used.
