>>CUTTS: Remiz Rahnas from Kerala, India
asks, “Is it good to put a ‘coming soon’ page for new domains? Google seems to prioritize
new domains in SERPs. Will a ‘coming soon’ page stand as a negative for it?” No. I would,
you know, I think a “coming soon” page can be pretty smart. I think it’s good for users
so that they don’t just end up on a “black hole page” that, you know, it doesn’t resolve
or something like that. If you have some content that’s coming out, I don’t think there’s any
harm from having a “coming soon” page and then as you get more content you can put that
content out there and then when the full site is ready you can have the full site out there.
So I wouldn’t worry about, you know, ranking-wise, that being a problem. I think it can be a
good thing for users and it can be a good thing for search engines.
