...when it comes to SEO. I've always done paid advertising so I've never needed to rank well in the search engines. But now things have changed up for me. I am already in the process of developing a custom ecommerce type website from scratch. This website will have thousands of pages of different products. The coding is about 50% complete and I expect the launch to be at least a month or two down the road. My question is: I already own the domain the I will be using for the site. It is a brand new name that I registered. Is there anything I can be doing right now to help rank the domain name and get some traffic started? Right now all I have up is a 'coming soon' image page. Should I start building backlinks to the domain name? Any advice to this seo noob would be greatly appreciated.
