I notice when I visit the main page of
stackoverflow.com I see a distinctly different list of questions than when I click on the "Questions" link that takes me to
stackoverflow.com/questions. What's the difference between these two sets of questions?
I notice that the list I see on
stackoverflow.com when I first visit the site seems to be biased toward my interesting tags, but not all of the questions that show up contain a tag I've marked as interesting. How are these selected? Is there an algorithm trying to determine other questions outside my interests that I might want to look at? Are the questions chosen by recency, least answers, longest time without an accept, etc.? And is the
stackoverflow.com/questions more just the overall list of the most recent questions?
Just curious. Thanks!
