What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

Last week I created the tag and tagged several questions with it. Now, I can no longer search for such articles: The tag search says 0 questions tagged.

However, if I search like this, many of the tagged articles show up - together with the tag.

Edit: When I am connected anonymously on another machine I can see the 11 questions. But as false, I don't. And: I do not have ignored tags...

Edit: Solved. I should have look at the result in more detail. However, the actual reason for this misunderstanding is the following:

As long, as I search for a single tag, I get the riders "info", "newest", "faq", "votes", "active", "unanswered".

But when I search for a tag plus a searchstring, I get the riders "relevance", "newest", "votes", "active".

So when I cross-checked, I got "better" results, because I now got the "relevance" rider in place of the "faq" rider.

Ok, problem solved. This was the reason: whenever I clicked on , or searched for it in the search box, I got the FAQ tab - which says 0 hits... I did not realized that this hidden state was present everywhere...

Your last chosen tab is selected by default. – Shadow Wizard Mar 27 '12 at 13:30
@ShaDowWizArd: I did know this very well. It is only that when you add an additional searchstring - you get these "better" results which made me blind on this – false Mar 27 '12 at 13:35
