The php web site has stock pages listed in the search engines that no longer exist. Currently when products are removed, the code or server is redirecting the user to the homepage with a 302 header... We would like to serve to our custom 404 page instead so that when products are removed, Google will revisit the URL, find a 404 and then remove the page from its index.
An example page is below showing the 302(soft404) seen by Google:
Fetch as Google
This is how Googlebot fetched the page.
