You know you want a web site, you have executed your research on different solvents and have looked into a CMS solution. Now the question of SEO is straight its head and you’re left mixt up. With a amount of CMS choices out there how do you decide which is the best?.

CMS or content management systems are increasingly growing the most common way of establishing a website. With the growing popularity of WordPress which has made the transition from blogging tool to CMS, the days of beginning up your asp or html computer programing books are quickly disappearance. However WordPress is the new kid on the block. Older more established CMS solutions such as Joomla, Mambo and Drupal have been dominating the opensource CMS market for a few years now. But the question still remains which is best for SEO?. What your first need to consider is your internet sites function and your skill level.

For optimum Search engine optimisation you need to have a CMS that maps to your requirements in a internet site and your ability to apply the solution. For a medium blog/site that is placed on planning of information, WordPress wins hands down. The built in SEO add-ons within WordPress or simple to deploy and can be executed in a matter of moments by a newbie watching simple to follow forum tips. Joomla is a little more complex in it’s SEO implementation. Very often freshmen to Joomla (suing the built in SEO functionality) leave global meta tags and keywords on the configuration which are applied to all pages (and even components) that have not had individual meta data populated. Robust Joomla SEO solutions require a number of third party plug-ins in order to make it operate correctly.

So WordPress is the solution then? You would think so reading the above but i’m a great believer in have your cake and eat it. Joomla has a wide array of superior design features and parts that not only make it look better than WordPress provide you to lead and grow your site more. You can also implement WordPress into Joomla as an integrated solution, so the best of both worlds. If you have the time and patience this is the best SEO solution. Because I believe good SEO extends beyond the search engine results pages.

It’s no great if your site ranks high within Google if your site doesn’t look the portion or you can’t extend it as your business needs change or grow. Joomla allows you to add shopping cart functionality via the virtuemart portion, which provides a decent ecommerce solution. Recognized WordPress also has a shopping cart component but the online offerings are more for selling the odd item here and there as opposed to a full shopping cart.

So if you’re after a scalable extendable solution, Joomla hosting and WordPress integration is the best option. If your a small site with limited time to learn then WordPress will meet your SEO needs.
