Let's say that the word "qwerty" appears in the page website.com/page1.htm. On Monday, the qwerty word was deleted from the page. After how many days, a person typing "qwerty" (with double quotes) in google search engine won't see the page website.com/page1.htm ?

The answer is "nobody knows" because it's determined by Google's crawler algorithm:

Google's spiders regularly crawl the web to rebuild our index. Crawls are based on many factors such as PageRank, links to a page, and crawling constraints such as the number of parameters in a URL. Any number of factors can affect the crawl frequency of individual sites.

Our crawl process is algorithmic; computer programs determine which sites to crawl, how often, and how many pages to fetch from each site. We don't accept payment to crawl a site more frequently. For tips on maintaining a crawler-friendly website, please visit our Webmaster Guidelines.

If your next question is "what's the algorithm?", nobody knows except Google. They don't release that information because spammers and other naughty people could use it to their advantage.
