Google Trends / Result count, of programming languages for webdevelopment

I have been searching on net about the best programming language for webdevelopment.
I have found many blogs, posts, forum topics about the same.. Then came a crazy idea of "Why not check for what most people are searching about". Then I went of to "Google trends" to check the popularity, then searched in google for them to get the hit count. Here are the results..

PHP - Results 1 - 10 of about 11,470,000,000 for php
JSP - Results 1 - 10 of about 821,000,000 for jsp
ASP - Results 1 - 10 of about 3,620,000,000 for asp

Clearly php dominated the show..
Though I dont infer that php is the best for webdevelopment, but clear it is the most used / most searched language.. :) There is a plenty of help out there for php based webdevelopment.
