Can anybody provide any insight on this?
If you create a sitemap.xml file and upload it to your website's public directory, you can then use Google Webmaster Tools to tell Google to update your sitemap and re-index all the links. You can create a sitemap here for free: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
- You can also download a free desktop (PC) sitemap tool with a few good features from Wonder Web Ware .com - (I'm not affiliated with either of those sites, use at your own discretion).
Also, in website design, avoid creating "Under Construction" pages for your clients. Simply adding a client's business name and details along with contact details can get them ranking high on Google before you even start work on the website. And, be sure to add the most useful Title and description tags first up so that these are indexed.
If you do create an indexable holding page make sure you have a good deposit, or else your client might say, "we're happy with all the calls we're recieving from the holding page, so leave it at that".
Hope this helps.
