    Question Is possible to have wonderful results with SEO using Cold Fusion?

    Hello. I知 new in this site and I知 from Brazil, so I want to apologize for any mistake that I make.

    Here are the facts:

    - The company I work for have the whole system in cold fusion.
    - I知 responsible for the marketing (I知 not a webmaster). Because of that I知 trying to improve the SEO for the site.
    - The site project wasn稚 made for SEO. There are a lot of basics thinks to do for SEO, like: include different meta tags for each page.
    - The webmaster guys know almost nothing about SEO.
    - There is so many things to do that I understand that is better to start a knew project from the scratch.
    - The whole site is dynamic.
    - Our site is redirecting the address because of the international site that exist with the same address.

    Here are the questions:

    1) Can I have wonderful results with SEO using Cold Fusion?
    2) Is possible to make easy to understand URL痴 with cold fusion? Is it very important for SEO?
    3) Which one is better for SEO? Java or Cold Fusion?
    4) Is the redirection a big problem for SEO? Should I buy a new domain?

    Thank you very much for your attention. It will help me a lot to make a decision here.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestion for the situation.

    Best regards.

    Gabriel Medeiros.

    A server side language, like Java, Coldfusion, or Java, have no bearing on SEO. Hence, coldfusion or not, you can certainly optimize your website for search engines by making sure that the website conforms to SEO dos and don稚s.

    It doesn't matter if you use Coldfusion or Java because you will have to ensure the "content" is written for SEO.

    You'd probably be better off asking this question in the SEO forum. As others have mentioned, ColdFusion is merely a method for delivering structured markup code to the user's browser. ColdFusion itself has no bearing on good or bad SEO.

    Hi Creole, I had exactly the same question as Gabriel.

    I note your point and will raise it on the SEO forum.

    I am in a position where we have die hard cold fusion web developers, but we seem to not to be able to achieve any decent PR, despite having good white hat SEO.

    Cam..

    Can you post a link to your site? Aside from the ColdFusion aspect, we can at least point out a few things that might affect your results.
