I use both Joomla and Wordpress, great systems - huge differences! Code doesn't rank, content do. Therefore, content is king!

Focus on the keyword research, content strategy, links and your digital strategy. This is more important than ever before!

Never start building a website without a keyword research (ecaxt match). Build a strong foundation by optimizing the CMS/blog and the structure with the keyword analysis in mind.

for few pages .html is good but for huge pages Wordpress CMS is much easier...for seo you have to work hard..whatever CMS will.

This doesn't mean you can't get Joomla to rank higher, just means you will need a little bit more of customization and plugins.

Above mentions strictly ON PAGE SEO, such at header tags, URL structure, title structure and available plugins for SEF URLs and Sitemap compilers.

I agree, any platform can rank well as long as appropriate optimization is implemented. Additionally, the website must have good and quality contents. With the recent panda updates, even how best is the platform if the contents are crap, it won't rank for a long time. It might rank for a short period but it will not last long.

Finally some posts that agree that WP is not only for blogging.... I recently did SEO optimization for this joomla site [url]htttp://www.anexe.nl[/url] and it was a drag so much stuff you need code and configure just to prefend duplicate content en SEF url's

Now when I compare this to WP all I need to do is install Wordpress SEO plugin from yoast and everything is setup properly! No have code lifting... plus this plugin is comepletly free.

Just compare these two steps for wordpress with the extensive Joomla SEO on this forum and you will notice the difference.... :pop
