Hello, I of course want to be found by google but I deleted a couple posts and I still see them when I do a google search. Plus, my new posts aren’t in google! It shows the title of the entry and the tags of the deleted posts, then if you click it, it does bring up the 404 page. Why is this happening?
Deleting something from a blog does not remove it from search engine caches, it takes a few months for a cache to be flushed of stale content.
Depending on how much “Google Juice” your site has affects how fast a new entry is indexed, the time can be a few minutes (this forum for instance) to a few hours or a few days depending on how active your site is with new content.
