So the project in its development stage will not be indexed despite garnering followers? It would only show if someone downloaded the pdf in June?
A project needs to be available in some form to be indexed and be visible in searches. If it’s in development it can have demo files available for download.
The page is still public and can be shared on other sites.
For more information you can read Getting indexed on Search & Browse.
Thanks so much for the info! I'll cont to build the followers externally and then launch in June.
