Deleted Pins Still Show Up in Search

Hi.

@PinterestGabby I've noticed that pins I deleted a long time ago keep showing up in search with a higher ranking that current pins. Furthermore, I've notice that these deleted pins are often used as spam. (Someone steals it and changes the URL.) How come when you delete a pin it does not disappear everywhere? Is there a way to delete a pin everywhere, even if it is saved to someone else's board? I'm thinking beyond the spam to legit pinnings as well from other users... In many cases these deleted pins no longer represent my brand or I've changed logos or colors or the information is out date. 

thanks,

Chris

@PinterestGabby Do you have an answer on this question? Why do deleted pins keep showing up in search? Are they not removed from other boards when I delete them?
