Hi there, Everyone:
I have a new e commerce site in development that will EVENTUALLY have about 12 different categories and about 180 products.
Should I block the site with robots.txt until ALL the products and categories are up in place?
Or is it ok to start letting search engines index the site if I only have two categories and maybe 15 products up, and gradually add categories and products as they become available? (there won't be any broken links or pages with minimal text while doing this).
In short, does the first crawl / indexing of a new web site have any more significance than subsequent crawling and indexing?
