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 believe the Tag Stats are not updated immediately when an answer is first upvoted. They seem to be updated every few hours. So my question is: What is the "frequency of updation" of Tag Stats?

This is by-design, this page is heavily cached.

At the moment there is about a 15 minute cache interval (depending on the tag), in future I am looking at only updating that page daily (when that happens I will make sure some text in the page explains that)

It runs some very expensive queries so we need caching.

Thanks for clearing that up. – shamittomar Sep 3 '10 at 3:32

The change that waffles mentioned in his answer has taken place. The bottom of the tag stats pages now include this statement:

Only non community-wiki questions and answers are included in these totals (updated daily)
