    What do you guys usually do with domains that are 'pending' to be developed.
    I registered 3 potential domains and looking to have them developed soon.

    Of course, I wouldnt be able to develop all 3 at the same time.
    So what should I do with the other 2? Should I leave them parked? or should I have quickly make a landing page for it and get it indexed first?

    What do you guys usually do? Please advise. Thanks

    A coming soon page would be fine. Parking it won't bring any fruit unless it has potential to receive type-in traffic or you're looking to sell it too at the same time.

    Thanks.

    I was thinking installing WP on all of them (default theme, putting nothing but hello world);
    Simply let them index and go from there. Do you think thats a good idea?

    However, I was concern that once it get indexed; It may hurt the site for further development;
    as I will put themes/new articles on top etc. And it will be a COMPLETE change. (obiviously)

    Please advise. Thanks

    Generally I go ahead and toss Wordpress on them, get my theme together, write the homepage, and set it up just as I want the homepage. Then I let it sit until I can get around to adding other content.

    Hah, thats not a bad idea
    At least you get your feet wet right? Perhaps, that will motivate me to finish that site quickly too.
    Otherwise, I sometimes forget that I even own such domain already.
