My question is, will my pages be indexed now in Google if they had
<meta name="robots" content="noindex" /> in the past, since they were created? Of course, now they are
<meta name="robots" content="index" />. If yes, then how long it will take to have them in Google?
To give you some background, I'm making a site with the manual translation of some text to another language. This surely takes time, and I want to run the site already, having non-translated pages (with the Google machine translation option) along with completed translated ones. My idea is to block indexing of non-translated pages, so they appear to curious people, while not obstructing search engine index. After I get to some particular page, I translate it and change noindex to index. Is that a good idea?
