... that has been deleted from all titles remain in the suggested list of keywords that can be added and in the list of keywords that appear while doing a search?

It depends on where you are searching for the keyword. If you are using the search bar at the top of any page, it disappears quite quickly for me, usually overnight. If you are talking about in the suggestions when you are entering keywords in the edit form, I don't think it ever disappears. In fact, I've seen lots of suggestions in that area that have no titles attached to them (usually because they are misspelled and someone corrected them.)

Here Bradley is referring to the site keyword search. Also note that grind-house does not exist in this search result:

In the edit form, grindhouse is accepted, but so is grind-house, which is also suggested when I enter a misspelling:

I was not replying to you, Ed, just elaborating on Bradley's post since his example didn't mention the edit form suggestions that he previously referred to.

I'm sorry to say that you are correct, the keywords do not disappear from this menu even when empty.

We did do a bulk clean-up of these last year though.

Thanks,
Will
