The Favorite Tags appear below the Advertisements and are not easily visible. They should appear somewhere on top for fast navigation.

I complained about this a few months ago, from a slightly different angle. I just want the size of the ads to remain fixed, since even on a fast connection I often pop through to the careers page because I click as the content is loading and re-sizing:

Please use proper HTML/CSS to size ads on right margin

But I do agree, it would be nice to be able to put your favorite tag buttons above the ads. It already works this way on the home page, why not on the questions page too?

To be honest, I've just added bookmarks for the search results for my most favorite tags, and navigate via the bookmarks on my toolbar instead of using the inconsistent right-hand navigation.

I also suggest them to define a certain area for advertisement rather than Ads blocking what is important. – Code1008 Jul 2 '12 at 7:16
I guess the basic idea is that we should see the ads. :-) But it would be nice to have the buttons in a fixed location, so they don't move away exactly when you click them. – Bo Persson Jul 2 '12 at 7:40
@BoPersson sure, I get that they want us to see the ads, but if my workaround for the current bad/inconsistent behavior is to create my own buttons nowhere near the ads, what they've actually accomplished is that I don't see the ads at all. Even unintentionally fooling me into clicking an ad when that wasn't my intention is not the honest way to build up clickstream revenue. :-) – Aaron Bertrand Jul 2 '12 at 12:03
