Clicking the tag for Google+ API on this page results in a broken search. Instead of returning two results currently listed under , it returns the results for -, or, this page

This seems to be the fault of the + sign, which is urlencoded, and then decoded as a space.

It's how c++-cli is encoded in the same way, but it doesn't have the same problem. –  kiamlaluno Jul 5 '11 at 1:35
    
Interesting! Good catch. –  Yahel Jul 5 '11 at 1:36

It seems the problem is only for tags containing +-, as test-tag-a+-test. –  kiamlaluno Jul 5 '11 at 1:42

We don't really support compound tags in the form of

foo+-bar

I also don't see the point of an "API" addendum there, since any question about Google+ should be by definition about programming Google+.

So I renamed the tags and merged.
