Hi All,

We are in the process of designing a new website with new URL and will launch in September but currently it's still under construction. Is it a good idea to submit the site to search engines now or should I wait for the site to be completed before submitting.

It is a non-commercial website, what would you suggest?

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Carey

I would definitely wait. Similar Discussion [webmasterworld.com]

I've always tried to get a new site into the search engine indexes as soon as possible. I don't understand the advantages of waiting--maybe someone who feels you need to wait could explain that. I've found that Google especially has a "wait factor" where they don't give your site any respect until it's been around for a while, so I like to get that clock ticking as soon as possible. So what's the problem if your site isn't pretty yet or doesn't have all the content or all the links aren't working yet? I haven't heard anything where that penalizes you and I haven't seen it with my sites.

About a year ago, I wrote a site that the client insisted on uploading with very little content and I have just Googled it by its one-word URI name which is the also a geographic name and it ranks 4th... AFTER a link to Google's own geo directory listing!

Using the same key word search strategy on two other very similar sites that I wrote... Rankings: 1st

My conclusion: content is very, very important

I wouldn't take the information in the above linked thread as still valid. The Search Engine Submission [webmasterworld.com] forum here at WebmasterWorld has been closed since 2003, simply because submitting your site to search engines is totally meaningless these days. None of the major search engines (Google, MSN Live, Yahoo) take any notice of submitted sites.

Just get some inbound links and the search engines will pick up your site.
