Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.
