    I think Drupal is a better option than Joomla as cms and more seo friendly. It is however more difficult to install and setup as I am finding at the moment.

    I agree, WP is better for blogs (for ease of use) and also for SEO (owing to the wide extension library catering specifically to SEO). But Drupal is the best CMS for SEO, hands down.

    Comparing Joomla and WP is like comparing apples and oranges. Each is best for a different purporse.

    I like apples better than oranges. They are easier to use, they have a better core, they don't have many unnecessary portions that you might not like, and quite frankly they look better.


    Apple = Wordpress

    Joomla 1.5 has a built a built in SEO tools. It's not as extensive as the All in One SEO Pack for WordPress but it gets the job done. You can easily edit article meta information and description information.

    Thanks for starting interesting Topic here. Yes i agree that the Joomla is better than any other web development platform. Its easy to use and its an open source software used for dynamic website development. Joomla customization is used by lot of web developers for making powerful online applications and websites. on the other hand if we talk about the wordpress platform then no doubt its good for SEO too but not very much effective as Joomla is!

    I've used both and I prefer Wordpress by far. Google also seems to like Wordpress site better. I think the software is just designed better for SEO.

    As for load times, this is a factor the Google takes into account for page rank. So if you site is having this issue, may want to look into optimizing it. Wordpress has some great cache plugins. I don't recall about Joomla, but may guess it that they probably do so as well.

    Good luck!

    Wordpress all the way. The fact that it is the most popular and their are more plugins running in all the time. It is highly diverse and I'll choose it because it has a better building interface than Joomla in my opinion.

    Making any comparison between Joomla and Wordpress is really a tough call. Because both are good enough at there own positions. Though Joomla code is a little bit complicated rather than WP. Joomla supports MVC design pattern. Still some developers try to avoid Joomla because of its coding structure complexity. By the way, for simple blog site you can choose WP. I do not think SEO will be matter for Joomla or WP. In my Web development experience I have never seen any issue there. Both have feature of SEO friendly URL. Both load in almost at same time.

    Wordpress is easy to use, easily amended for SEO and used by a lot more than Joomla so Wordpress wins

    This thread is discussing - IMHO the rather tired topic - Joomla vs. WordPress.

    If you need help with something please start a new thread in an appropriate forum.

    I say, Joomla is not slow to load, so it is more about what you like, your preferences. Check out this blogpost, it gives good pros and cons for Joomla and WordPress: http://nookeen.wordpress.com/2010/10...4-differences/

    I think Joomla more powerful than Wordpress , Joomla can become any type of website if you plan to config it for much time, but Wordpress only fit to be blog or not complicate website .

    wordpress has allot more plugin's but the joomla plugin's can be allot more advanced. It's hard to post images in Joomla but not wordpress pick your best out of these features.

    I've never liked Joomla. Not even when it was called Mambo (before the developers split). Too crammed for my taste. Wordpress seems to be the best tool for blogging, I even use it for presentation sites, since it's indeed versatile. So in my case, it's a no contest. Wordpress all the way.

    With custom-posts and custom-taxonomy in wordpress, we can achieve almost anything. More is on the way with post-formats feature in upcoming release.
    We ourself developed many things wordpress like e-commerce, social-networking, event management, learning management system and we are even working on a project management solution - purely wordpress based.
    I believe wordpress is not only a CMS, but a good framework also!
