Hi --

I am currently developing a community for actors web site, and don't plan to launch before September. But I've been reading up on search engine submissions, and I read that it could take 30-90 days before getting listed on most engines.

Therefor, what procedure could I / should I take to get the most out of the process:
should I publish a general home page now and submit it so my site will be indexed by my launch? Do I need to wait until my entire site is live before submitting? What about losing out on those 30-90 days -- or is that just the way it goes?!

thanks for any input.
