I searched questions tagged , and I obtained the following results (look at first question):

c++ tag seardh results

Refreshing the page a little bit later left the question out of results, so it looks like a race condition issue.

I just don't understand the downvote. Had this question been asked before I wouldn't have asked. – Antonio Pérez Sep 28 '11 at 9:15
@agf: Thanks. Good to know. – Antonio Pérez Sep 28 '11 at 9:37
@PaddedCell is entirely correct; we cache that data pretty aggressively - there are some minor oddities that can occur if the cache is not quite up to date, but they are so short-lived that it is genuinely not worth the impact of treble-checking the results shown (which might then involve loading different data to compensate for differences with pages of data etc). – Marc Gravell Sep 28 '11 at 10:17

No repro on my end.

Buuuuuuuut it might be a simple caching issue (I mean, if it is an issue at all), the question was tagged with c++.

There is always a lag when the tags on a question are edited before the new tags are reflected in searches. This is easy to test yourself and I see it all the time when retagging.

Not a bug, just caching.

Edit: I just removed from a question, and it showed up in the search results for maybe three minutes before disappearing.
