Remove deleted sites from SharePoint Home
On the 'Frequent sites' section of my home SharePoint page, it would be nice if deleted site collections were automatically removed from the 'Frequent sites' section. Clicking on the deleted site is just going to result in a '404' error.

I have been following this for almost 2 year but I think I found a potential solution:
First: frequent site is somehow tied to Office Graph and Delve. So you need to disable Office graph in SharePoint admin center -> Setting, select "Don't allow access to Office Graph."
Then open your Delve, go to setting -> Feature setting, disable document tracking.
Finally, go to SharePoint main page (where the frequent site is listed), go to Site settings -> Search -> Search and offline availability. click "Reindex site" to trigger a site crawl.
Log out and wait for 1 hour, log back in, and Voila!! frequent site is empty.
I have tried on my account and it works.

Any update on this issue.
I second the first comment.
Why is this sort of thing not covered by unit tests?

Not having deleted sites automatically when they are deleted, seems like a bug, and not an enhancement that the community should have to vote on.
