New Domain Name

    I just purchased yet another domain name but will probably not have the site up for a month or two if I'm lucky. In the meantime should I throw a static intro page up and start collecting backlinks with the anchor text I will be using or should I wait until I launch the site? I am thinking I should start collecting backlinks right away..

    most sites (even directories) won't be too eager to give you links if all you have is an intro/splash page.

    It is often said, and I myself agree, that it is unwise to open the doors to a shop with empty shelves.

    The small, one-time break on possible sandboxing is not worth the potential loss of visitors who find the site in the SERPs, go there, and find a dummy page. Few will return.

    It's not a bad idea. Your IBL's will be caught in the Sandbox anyway, so you might as well let some of the them age while you wait to launch.

    I'm sort of in the same situation. I've laid out my splash page with meta tags etc., and a graphic saying coming soon whilst in the background I'm working feverously away on it. The thing is spiders are already indexing the homepage which is a pain since the site is still being developed.

    I definitely get a dummy page up and throw my own links at it while i'm building it. These sites are not so much sticky, community sites, they are sites being built exclusively for SERPs traffic and I know I won't be placing well for the first couple of months.

    I personally am a sandbox believer as it is affecting my new sites consistently. So, I put up a temporary homepage and throw links at new domains on day 1 (literally) and then go from there. My temporary page just has the title, meta tags, and an opening paragraph with some of the correct keywords placed on it.

    Exactly, but remember that is effects links not sites, however it may seem that it is the site being affected because it's new.
