I have a site that is currently under construction but I will have the whole e-commerce site done soon. I would like to submit the home page to crawler-based search engines so that they can spider it and index it on the next re-index. However, most of the links off of the home page don't work since I haven't built all of the site sub structure yet. What should I do? Will the spiders see the links and get mad because they point to 404's? Should I just go and put up a short index.html at every place that I link to (i.e. www.domain.com/subdirectory/index.html - this file would just say, welcome to subdirectory or something like that). I would like to get the page indexed asap so any help would be great.
Basically, would it hurt to submit?
