Today I searched tag from the tag option in SO. I got this result:

enter image description here

It shows X 10 and "8 asked this month, 8 asked this year." When I click on the tag, or on the hyperlink "8 asked this month," I get this page:


Here it shows "0 questions tagged."

Why does this happen? Is it a bug, or a known behavior?

How can I see the questions tagged ?

The obvious reason here is most likely SO's very aggressive caching algorithms[1].

I think that the got BURNiNATED in the past 10 minutes, and now your tag counts are all whacked up. Give it 5 or so minutes and it should sort itself out.


What's happened is that there are no questions with the tag, but there were some in the very recent past.

Give it 24 hours and the tag will be removed from the system so the info page (including wiki) will disappear.
