Moderate Traffic Growth Early – Strong Growth Aug 2011

Interesting Trends seen in Google Analytics for DisplacedGuy.com
- PowerBuilder making a comeback
- Java has reached an all time low with only 88% of visitors supporting Java
I’m seeing a marked increase in demand for PowerBuilder content in particular PowerBuilder 12.5. This is pretty exciting for us PowerBuilder loyal developers, PB has a chance of making a comeback if the marketing department at SAP doesn’t screw things up half as bad as Sybase did.
Java supported browsers visiting DisplacedGuy.com are declining at an accelerated pace. According to Google Analytics stats, it looks bad for Java. With this being a technical site I’d expect the number of visitors having Java support to be very high however the number dropped from it’s peak of 92% when the site started in March of 2010 to only 88% of visitors visiting in August 2011. PowerBuilder developers have taken it on the chin from Java developers for years about how superior their language is, well the writing is on the wall, and the number of web searches for “Java is dead” has surpassed the number of searches for “PB is dead”.
