    I was initially thinking to complete my site before building links. But, since it will take them time to show effect I think I might start.

    Still confused.

    Building links for the targeted keywords? If yes, then better to wait and make the site first. Do proper on page and you should see some lsi and long tails moving. With this it will be easier for you to decide getting links for which kws first will be beneficial. If you are talking about making links to the domain with generic and brand anchors then fine go ahead, It will increase the domain authority and anchor diversity (Y)

    I would advice you to complete your website and then start to think about Link building.
    Create the website with the proper design and add a blog section to it. You will need it.
    Good luck.

    I don't think it's a Good Idea. First setup your site after Indexing, start link building.

    But If you are launching any service or product, you can do Press Release.

    If you open the door to a new restaurant and find that its half-finished would you be happy?

    Depends on the restaurant. If they've got really good food, I don't even need them to have a door. Heck, I'll stand and eat if it's good enough.

    OP, to answer your question, there is no definitive answer. What I would recommend, is to get some good content on your site, and then begin building links. All the while, continue to add good content (and don't ignore onpage SEO). I'm in the apparent minority that feels a website is never truly "finished".
