    Is it a bad decision to build contextual backlinks from related sites while the moneysite is in maintenance mode? I mean, google will only see the maintenance screen when considering my content in relation to the content where the linkjuice comes from. Anyone?

    What do you mean by "under maintainence"? Anyone who visits your site will not see anything but a "work in progress" sign ? Then can't you get your site ASAP first before thinking of building links?

    It's more of a theoretical question on how google would weight backlinks that point to a site which temporarily has no content.
