I know how the tag works, but under (clicking on) the tag on Stack Overflow, we don't get all questions tagged with .

For example, this question tagged with , but it isn't there in the untagged questions list.

I tried the new search engine and also http://stackoverflow.com/search, but I still can't find all those questions. Is there a way?

I am really tempted to remove the untagged tag from this question as it has a special meaning. –  ChrisF Jan 20 '13 at 11:50
@ChrisF: How about renaming it to [untagged-questions]? –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Jan 20 '13 at 11:56
@BoltClock'saUnicorn - that'd work. –  ChrisF Jan 20 '13 at 11:56

As already mentioned, locked questions are not listed in tag pages.

But locked questions can be searched through the search page. So in the search page/search box try this keyword:

[untagged] is:q

My guess is that locked questions won't show up on the list, which is pretty silly since that question has the official 'historical significance' stamp.

It can be found by direct search with [untagged] cake, so it will show up in some search results, just not by searching on the tag itself.

Hmm, so if we try to find locked and tagged with untagged questions, we can't find them with searching, right? –  Soner Gönül Jan 20 '13 at 11:29
@Soner, there is no way currently to specifically search locked questions. –  Lance Roberts Jan 20 '13 at 16:38
