    Hi!

    I am currently woking on building content for my new website. I have not launched yet, my domain has only an index.html its forwarded to that has a properly formatted head tag with title, meta description, meta keywords, ect. The body has "Our website is currently under construction." And that's it. Is it a good idea to submit to Google now for indexing so the domain gets some age? Or is it better to finnish the site, and only then submit to google?

    TLDR which is better for SEO: age OR perfect, brand new, but finnished?

    Thanks! :D

    How many years did you decide to use on the site before it's finished?

    Yes you can submit your site for indexing but don't be late to provide content on it.

    Wait till you get at least a few pages, unless you want to see the "under construction" page for a long time even after your launch..

    How long is it going to take you to build the site, ages i guess otherwise finish up your site development first before submitting it for indexing.

    Wait until 50% of the site is indexed on Google webmaster before you begin back linking.

    You may submit it now, but better add several pages/posts and then submit
    Anyway that does not matter too much for you now, since google bot will be constantly re-visiting and re-indexing the site, if you add some backlinks and pings.
