So the cleanest strategy would be to serve a 410 with a redirect to the category page?

301 means that the content has "moved" which is not the case. It looks more like a strategy that Google may penalize in the future, doesn't it?

This strategy is great for some type of content. In our case, it does not work, because we have to notify the search engine to remove the content through 410 (as Google has no api for expired content notification) as soon as the user delete its auction. Most of our users do not want their expired content staying on Google even a few hours after they deleted their content.

comment What is Google's tolerance about cloaking with unwanted crawlers (fraudsters, scammers, etc)?
@CaptainCodeman that is exactly the point. Google must certainly hide its identity to check if a website is cloaking. Google will not try to understand the reasons behind the difference of content...

comment How to notify Google about expired content?
Good tips! We still have one issue: against our guidelines, many users add information they consider sensitive (phone number, address of the house they sell), etc. After the ad has been deleted, they search that on Google and see the page in Google's index + a cached version (reason why we are thinking about noarchive). Some pages take weeks/months to be removed. Any idea?
