Once upon a time, there used to be list of tags and the amount of questions per tag in a question page. It was located in the right sidebar, and for me was something "nice to have", quick way to know how popular a tag is without having to click it.

Now that the Hot Network Questions took over, we don't have it anymore and no other way (except clicking a tag) to see how many questions are asked in a specific tag.

Can we have the ability back? If not in the same place, maybe in the tag popup?

Why it will be useful, not just nice to have? Suppose you land on this question. The tag appears to be legit but if we could easily see it got only 2 questions it would be easier to understand the OP probably meant to use the existing tag instead.

I'm glad to announce that for some time now (at least a week) this is implemented in the tag "card":

  • @hichris123 red is used to mark what's wrong, at least for me, so blue looked like a proper choice to mark what's right. ;) Apr 24, 2014 at 21:52
