I hear most say WordPress is a lot better at SEO out of the box, and would agree with that. Joomla requires more tweaking to get things right.

Back to the thread...

I personally have a completely custom website, but that suits me.

I believe off the shelf CMS are very good for smaller websites and clients with little time. They get the basic SEO right for them. I'd prefer the client gets poorly optimised content up there than no content at all. They can hire me to correct it afterwards.

If a client is rich, then they can have the custom CMS that does perfect SEO and expensive development and maintenance to go with it.

Interesting thread – You said it’s free?

Do you mean 30 day trial?

I personally always use word press as its much easier to do SEO.

When it comes to CMS with SEO I’m not to sure from my past experience. I may give it a test.

Default Comparison to weebly?

I'd be curious to get your take on whether it is better than weebly. I've used weebly and it is very easy, but it is somewhat inflexible in header / footer type settings.

In the right hands of a professional SEO then you can optimise Joomla but I still convert my clients to a fresher outlook on their search engine efforts.

I am not a fan of content management systems I guess
Conent management systems don't work as well as one would like.
