Server-side programming languages ranked by usage on top websites

This diagram shows the share of top sites amongst all the sites for various server-side programming languages.

We calculate a top-site score from the usage of a technology by top sites compared to its usage by average sites. The score is derived from measurements at several traffic levels, but roughly speaking, score 2 means that usage of the technology is twice as common amongst top 1,000 sites than amongst top 10 million sites. Score -3 means that usage by top 10 million sites is three times as common as by top 1,000 sites. Only technologies used by 10 sites or more are included in this report. See technologies overview for further explanations on the methodologies used in the surveys.

How to read the diagram:
Usage of Java amongst top 1,000 sites is 3.9 times as common as amongst top 10 million sites.
