Site private temporarily - effect search engine rankings?

  1. I was just curious that if I make my blog/site private temporarily (for several reasons) would if effect my Search Engine rankings?

    Also, can I make the entire blog password protected so that only certain people can see it? (I know you can make individual posts & pages password protected.)

    I may want to make it available to a few clients until I finish getting it more presentable. (I'm using it as my writing portfolio.)

    The blog I need help with is jennikeast.wordpress.com.

  2. Hi Jenni,
    You blog is unranked in other words it has yet to earn a pagerank. You can make a different visibility choice.

    See options 2 and 3 here.

    Would I bother doing this? No.
