Of course it's unbelievable. This change didn't happen over a year's
time, it happened in one month. This means that the methodology Tiobe
uses changed, or the search portals changed their hit count algorithm.
where they automatically discount all D hits by 10%. They don't do that
For example, of the first 100 hits of "D programming" on google, I found
only 6 that were not about D, two of which was already excluded by
Tiobe's algorithm. That's 4%, not 10%.
I found 3 non-C ones for "C programming" in the first 100. That's 3%,
