Is Joomla better then WP for SEO

Post by seasaw » Tue Jun 21, 2022 10:01 am

Hi.

I have used WordPress for building blogs because it's great for SEO. But I don't like the performance of it.

So, I'm interested in Joomla and what to know if it is good for SEO.

For example, this blog is built with WP and SEO is very easy can I build the same type of website with Joomla?

Also, do I need a developer or can I build it myself?

Don't take our word for it. Even Wordpress says joomla is better for SEO https://wordpress.com/go/website-buildi ... r-website/

"But if you want the ability to create an aesthetically-pleasing, SEO-optimized, safe website – without time, effort or in-depth experience – WordPress.com is the clear choice."
I don't see claims that joomla is a better option.
Being a freelancer, I had a chance to do seo for websites using joomla. The ease and flexibility you in wp is un match.

That article at the WordPress website states:
When it comes to SEO-readiness, Joomla has the edge over WordPress. It’s SEO-ready out of the box – for example, users can set keywords and meta descriptions for new articles, something you need a plugin for on WordPress.com.
Joomla has all SEO options out-of-the-box but you have to use them at different places in the CMS. With 3rd party plugins (PWT SEO, 4SEO, etc) it's easier to work with SEO because those have combined all options on one place. And those plugins give visual indications and tips to improve your SEO (Like the Yoast pluginin WordPress).
