Yes, that is right, they all fail at Search Engine Optimization…
I have been reading several new posts about how well WordPress is doing SEO compared to Joomla! and how good Drupal is in SEO compared to WordPress and….well, you get the general idea.
it seems that every time people are defending their choice to use a certian Content management system. Which is a good thing, you can show people the reasons why you love the system(s) that you use.
We all do, we all like the system of our choice, whether it is WordPress, Joomla!, Drupal, Modx, Typo3, etc,etc. They are all great open source content management systems.
The Big Three, WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal.
I have written before how Search Engine Friendly WordPress, Joomla! and Drupal can be, but they don't do SEO…, YOU do SEO…
That is right, they don't do anything else then giving you the tools to get your website ready for higher rankings and better performance in the search engines!
You are the deciding factor in how well search engine optimization is done. You and the webmaster and content writers of your website.
None of the content management systems will come up to you and say, here is a great keyword rich title for your post. None of them will provide you with the keyword rich quality content that attracts visitors and back-links.
That is all up to you.
None of these content management systems will give you the right structure and internal linking ideas for the content of your site based on relevant keywords and none of them will do that keyword research for you.
They are just what they say the are, content management systems. You can use them for building websites, for building blogs, for building community's, but they still remain content management systems.
They are the engines that drive your website and/or Blog, but you have to work with them to get a really search engine optimized website.
The deciding factor for great search engine optimization
It is up to you to get the most out of the system of your choice and you will see that you can do it!
Either with WordPress, Joomla! or Drupal, or any other system, you have the knowledge and the ideas to get better rankings for you site.
You know your system of choice and you are the engineer that knows how to fire up that engine to drive it up to the best possible spot in the search engine results pages!
So don't blame or praise a website building engine for getting search engine optimization done right, praise yourself for doing a job well done.
