Will asking Google not to index a site have a negative effect after the noindex is removed?


I'm about to start building a website with WordPress, but I don't want it indexed until it's ready to be launched. It's presentation is important, and it will be difficult to get visitors who saw it half finished to come back when it's ready. I want to noindex the site at first to help keep it out of the rankings, but I don't want that to have a negative effect on the rankings after I remove the noindex. Does anyone know if it will?

    That was what i was asking. I want to stay away from just not publishing them because I'm going to be applying for a business AdSense account, so I'll need some posts up before I can do that. I was going to do it through both robots.txt and the head.
