Parked Domains placeholder pages showing in results Whitey msg:4317884 12:27 pm on May 26, 2011 (gmt 0) I'm pleased to see a handful of domain placeholder pages provided by the domain registration services, already in the index and SERP's after a few days - but it's going to be at least a month before the real websites can be deployed. Is this a good thing ? Will Google see this as SPAM before the real websites are put online, or is this a sign that the site has been accepted and is ready to "go".

The presence of placeholder pages, parked domains, etc. comes rarely, unexpectedly and 99.99999% go away quickly. Think of such pages as the mosquitos that sneak from the patio, yard or forest into the house. Few get there. Once there few last long. Any ever "get out alive"? Doubtful. Their fate is to quickly wither and die or to get swatted.

Does that damage the speed with which the "real" site can be indexed? Actually - i just saw this : [ ] So it will index as per normal - quick or slow Y/N ?

Wish I could offer reassurances for what G/Y/MSN will do in any given situation but even their own reps won't go that far. My experience is that development is a pretty normal experience. All the usual rules apply once you get going. Doesn't mean that a domain that had some form of bad history, at some point in time, will function like ones that were "just parked for awhile".
