I have just noticed in my profile that my score is given as $36$. However, when I click on the tag, it takes me to this link, which shows all my posts (questions and answers) tagged . When I individually calculated the score, it came out to be $46$ instead of $36$.

I think I have not correctly understood how the score for a tag is counted. But how is it done?

That link may be a bit misleading, as it lists all your posts in that tag (currently 28, and that number is also shown in the profile).

For the tag score, only non-Community Wiki answers count. A better explanation is given on the tags tab of your profile, if you hover over the score:

This link lists all posts which are relevant for the score; it's obtained by adding the search terms is:answer wiki:no.

    $\begingroup$ @sai-kartik Questions don't count for the tag score, whether CW or not. $\endgroup$ – Daniel Fischer Sep 24 at 12:48
