Deleted profiles and images can sometimes be cached in Google search results. Google should reflect this within a couple days after deletion, though we unfortunately can't directly influence how long they store information for searches.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Profile pic changed but older pic still visible on google search.

i changed my display pic from my profile a long time back. But still my previous pic ( which is a little embarrassing for me) appears as the second image result whenever my name is searched on google. I had uploaded the pic from my iphone 4s through safari. IOS 7.1.2 was used.
