Both of those look at search engines, not at job openings specifically.

It's used by idiots to write articles about which language is trending, which leads to nonsense-articles in the daily news, which then leads to the dark side. Uni's use simpler languages to teach concepts, Open source projects use whatever is available, servers, smartphones, websites and rich UI all thrown in a single basket. And you look to that, for job openings?

Open your local gazette and write the languages down. If you already seen C# mentioned before, turf it. Use a spreadsheet, but that says more about what is requested in your locale than some average search engine test that cannot really explain "what" it is indexing. Just a hint that they "may" be popular; yeah, or extremely tedious instead of widely used.

Learning PL/SQL isn't going to make any difference - you'll learn that different dialect easily when needed.

Python? Well, none asks for that where I live. VB6, unfortunately, they do, wich is something you really MUST NOT LEARN.

Java is popular due to universities. Those lefties don't do commercial sh*t and those students search a lot. Still, you find Java more in the real world than Python.

If I need to add to your list, I'd say RegExes.
