As of March 2006, D is in 21st place!  In comparison, this is just short 
of VB.net, despite the major difference in advertising power. Go D!!!

WOW! Almost on the first page, and there are a lot of big names further down: Ruby, Fortran, Smalltalk, OCaml, Objective-C

TIOBE is pretty anglophil. e.g.: their search critera don't count the many Japanese Ruby pages In addition "D" isn't a good keyword: 1) mark "D" 2) part "D" ...

They don't just search for D silly, they search for "d programming"

I didn't say their data is flawed - just be careful when interpreting the data(as with every other statistic). 1) "programming ... -tv" * due to "programming" only English pages will be found * only pages that aren't served from a .TV domain will be found 2) "programming <language> ..." * false hits vary by "<language>" + "programming ruby": no significant amount of false positives + "programming Java": includes all software shops in Java(the location) + "programming C/D": lot's of false positives(truck loads of programming documentation, talking about CS grades, ...) 3) Well documented OpenSource and academic projects have a much larger online presents that links "programming" and "<language>" than commercial and in-house software. I'll stop here, but there are several other points that have to be considered while analyzing the TIOBE data.

 In addition "D" isn't a good keyword:
 1) mark "D"
 2) part "D"
 ...

It's as good as the "C" keyword <g>
