Confluence is incredibly slow + deleted pages showing up in search results

  1. Every page takes 5+ seconds to load fully. I do not have any apps installed. Can someone advise on how to fix this? If it continues to be slow, I will leave Confluence for a different provider because the whole purpose of my team's site is to make finding information quick and easy. Having to sit and wait for the page to load each time defeats the purpose.
  2. My search is showing pages the have been deleted. Anyway to stop this?

Hi @Jessica Dowd

I'm a PM on Confluence Cloud, and would like to learn more about your issues in (1).  Can you send me an email to dlu at  I'll have some more specific questions, but if you have a video of your page loading experience you can send me that would be a great start.


I think (2) should only happen for a short period of time (a few minutes?  I'm not sure) - the search index gets updated periodically.  If the problem persists (deleted pages still appear even days later), let me know here and I'll ping a colleague.
