    Hi there

    Do you know how long backlinks that I deleted weeks ago will continue to show up in my search console?. Its prety weird, a lot of these links have been catched as dropped/deleted/removed by Ahrefs, but like I said:They still appear as backlinks in Search console??

    Search-Console is Very slow,It will take 1-3month to show index/delete link.
    So don't worry your index/delete link must effect on SERP within few days,But for showing data on search console will take time.

    This depends on a lot of factors, including when Google recrawls the page containing the url. Often archived news articles won't be crawled for a while.

    Thanks for the feedback. Should I ping the deleted links to have them crawled faster`?
