I'm not sure why people don't also look at job sites to see language popularity. I quickly compared a few languages here http://www.zappable.com/2012/12/job-market-for-programming-l... but one could do a more in-depth analysis.

I created a chart with some more languages in this Google Doc: http://bit.ly/UBuI02. Java seems to be by far the most popular, though C# seems to be pretty high-demand too.

One could probably compare different job sites to see why they have somewhat different rankings. Also, I wasn't sure how to search for C (and even C++) without getting C# results too.
