This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I'd be especially curious about web programming questions, as those seem to be a grey area. This one for example: stackoverflow.com/questions/1342103/… – Mark Ransom Aug 27 '09 at 17:00
@Mark: That isn't about web programming, that is about characters. – GEOCHET Aug 27 '09 at 17:18
It's the kind of question a web programmer might need to know though, which maybe makes it a darker grey? – Mark Ransom Aug 27 '09 at 18:40

This google spreadsheet may help decide which site is appropriate. It is a list of the top 10,000 tags across the top 100 sites in the stack exchange network. It queries the stack exchange REST API to get a list of sites (returning the first 100), then generates another sheet to grab the top 100 tags from each site. The final sheet (TagsSorted) then sorts them by popularity across all the sites.

NB: it may take a while to open ;)

I used this ImportJSON google apps script to query the REST API.

From the FAQ:

If your question is about …

networking, servers, or maintaining other people's PCs and contains no source code, ask on Server Fault.

general computer software or hardware troubleshooting, ask on Super User.

web design and HTML/CSS layout, and your job title is "designer", ask on Doctype.
