Competitor's Site is a 404 - how to maximize?

Hi, so my competitor's site went offline and is currently a 404. I have submitted the URL to Google for a crawl, and clicked on the result, had it not load, and bounced back to the results a few times.

I'm trying to make sure Google realizes the site is gone.

Ideally their site tanks* and gets off the first page, but I want to make sure I'm doing everything possible to get the info to Google that the site is offline.

*It's not a business website, so they aren't losing money, but I'd like to see them off the first page.

Good idea, but it's not. I already tried to poach it in December.

Make sure to see off it's near expiration too. Picking up the domain and returning it into a feeder site could be a good boost, if you're into that sort of thing

If applicable find other websites that link to them, get in contact telling them the link is broken and suggesting your own version of the resource.
