24. Academic Link Indicators
The TIOBE Programming Community Index is an interesting example of a simple search engine-based indicator for academic-related information. It uses monthly Google and Yahoo! based search engine searches to estimate the relative popularity of programming languages. This is not really an academic indicator, but is an academic-related indicator.
