    I deleted on of my site, it was wordpress, and i replaced it with static website. Google indexed the pages of my new site, when i do 'site:' search i see my new pages, but i also see my old pages from my old site. Will google deindex the pages from my old site in time, or i have to make a request these pages to be removed from the google index?

    If your static site is still doing/selling the same thing as your WordPress one was then you should consider 301 redirecting your old pages to your new ones - You can do this via the .htaccess file

    +1 redirect old pages to new site if it is the same subject.
