I have about 200 URLs that have been permanently removed. I'm currently using this code to redirect these links to a Not Found page. Notice the URLs contain query strings.
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} Screen=PROD&Store_Code=1212&Product_Code=pumpkin_complexion_bar&Category_Code=facial_soap$
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://www.soapforgoodnesssake.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=NTFD&Store_Code=1212 [R=301,L]

Open in new window

How do I write a rule that redirects to the Not Found page but tells Google that the URL has been permanently removed.

Change the error code to 410, that's all you need. Google should eventually remove it from the index

I've tried that but it does not redirect to the Not Found page. Instead I get a screen that says,

Gone
