How do I search on a Stack Exchange for questions without a specific tag, for example questions without the tag on Programming Puzzles & Code Golf?

Edit: Why is this question marked as dubplicate? In this question I asked to search for questions without a specific tag. The question mentioned is "How do I search for questions with specific tags?" ?

    It's duplicate because the answer is given there as well. It is a general faq, and the tag negation is also mentioned. – Shadow Keeps Social Distance Aug 16 '16 at 21:38

Use negation. In other words:

is:q -[code-golf]

(You must also give either a search term or operator. In your case you want only questions, so is:q fits.)

From search help:

To exclude results from a tag, term or phrase, prefix it with - in your query: waffles -unicorns finds posts that mention tasty batter-based breakfasts without including mythical creatures, while [laurel] -[hardy] includes only posts pertaining to the first half of the classic comedy couple.
