(Originally the issue was titled “TIOBE” and was later repurposed)

I use these sites as part of research for programming languages:

I noticed that Perl is listed, but not Perl 6. I contacted the site runners and
received this response:

In order to qualify for the TIOBE index one of the requirements is that you
have at least 5,000 Google hits for your programming language. Here is the
result for Perl 6: Unfortunately, there are only 4,010 hits.

Here is the link they are using:

https://google.com/search?q=%22perl+6+programming%22

Perhaps this phrase could be placed in some prominent places to get the results
up?

Update: since posting this issue it appears Perl 6 has met the requirements, as
confirmed by email:

Hahaha. You are right. Unbelievable. Well, anyway I will add Perl 6 to the
TIOBE index. Thanks a lot!

However I think we should keep this open until the site is actually updated. I
will try to follow up in a week if its not done.

@JJ should we have a document somewhere like “How to blog about perl 6”? There we can discuss things like how to get your blog posts into http://pl6anet.org/, how to get them mentioned in the weekly, and yes, how to make sure that they count for the TIOBE index :)

@JJ what about the docs website? We do have some slightly off-topic pages there, like https://docs.perl6.org/language/modules.
