I’m developing a site for my church using the Genesis theme “Outreach.” I installed your SEO plugin, and I know that the first thing I need to do is change the permalink structure. The hosting provider is dragging his feet on this, says he is trying to figure out how to do it. I have currently asked the search engines not to index the site, until it is completely finished (still have a little more content to add). We would like to launch in the next couple of weeks.
My question is this: Will it cause problems if we go ahead and open the site to search engines and register with Google, with our current default permalink structure, and then switch to the postname structure whenever he is able to figure out how to allow this on his server? Or should we wait to register with Google and be indexed by search engines, until he has modified his htaccess file or whatever he needs to do, and then change the permalink structure BEFORE we launch?
Thank you so much. Here’s my site link:
