I apologize if this is the wrong stackexchange site, but I did see questions tagged with Facebook/Google+ and what not.

Anyway, I deleted a few online profiles I had (g+, soundcloud, etc...) however they still appear on google search results. So the first few links that come up when searching for my name are all deleted pages. I was wondering how long it would take for them to disappear and be replaced by something active, like my Github for example.

Google doesn't give details of how often they re-index sites, but it is generally known that they index popular sites more often. See https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/38049/how-long-does-it-take-for-google-to-re-index-pages-or-update-the-link-titles
