So, if we google for common file extensions, that might give us an
of the popularity of that technology, but hardly anyone gives their
"ColdFusion" as an extension, or "VBScript", so searching for those
alongside PHP or ASP isn't going to give us meaningful data to compare.
search for CF however returned ~21 million hits, which may give some
indication of the popularity of Cold Fusion (though it also seems to
encompass Cystic Fibrosis and Compact Flash amongst other topics)

The search for ASP also turns up a lot of pages about snakes, the
'official website of the olympic movement', and some other intersting
waypoints on  the web. Aren't snakes inherently bad? :)
