    I have a PDF that I want to remove, I deleted the PDF from my Media storage, I removed this Plugin but the PDF still exists on the Web. I really need to get rid of this file. Every night I come home and type in my web site name and a word that belongs to the PDF and the PDF pops up on Google, when I click on the google the PDF pops up like it was always there, I have removed the LINK from the Web site, I have looked around on my Server side but Somehow this PDF is still there. Note that if I repeat the request the web site pops up and informs me that the document I am looking for can not be found. I think if I wait a few hours the PDF will still be there, Is it possible the PDF is lodged inside my SQL data base and needs to be manually purged ??

    Just delete the PDF in the WordPress media library. That’s all you need to do. Search engines should eventually stop returning the PDF in search results.
