I would like to clarify an issue that a fellow blogger here on wordpress has experienced, regarding unused, deleted tags.
I am asking this question instead of him, because the tag in question concerns me more (it is kind of personal) :) Basically he had added a unique tag(no other blog on wordpress has it) when he created a new entry in his blog a couple weeks ago, but earlier today he deleted the tag from both his blog entry and from the list of all his tags.
Lets assume the tag was 'ratataaa'. It is not the real tag(sorry, I don't want to mention the real one), I just give you it as an imaginary tag.
After the tag had been removed earlier today, wordpress still has 2 seperate pages for it:
again, these are not real urls, but the structure is the same - just replace 'ratataa' with the real tag and 'baigaalapa' with the real blog name and you get the 2 pages I am concerned about.
My question is, when will these pages be deleted, and are they even deleted automatically? I am asking this because when googling the tag in question, the tag pages and the specific blog still come up in search results. Yes I know it takes time for google to recrawl the pages and everything, but I just want to make sure that they will not stay in google search forever or something. Also, when searching the tag in google images, all sorts of pictures posted on the blog come up. Will these pictures also not show up in search results for the tag after some time?
Sorry for such a complicated description, but this issue is really concerning me, as the tag is rather personal and I don't want any info regarding this tag to be on wordpress or in google search results :))
If you want me to clarify some info regarding this(I can imagine this long post a bit confusing), let me know!!
Thanks for any help.
