    When it comes about CMS, i think about custom theme. So, if markup is not right, you will still work on SEO factors onpage like alt atribute, title, and so on.

    Web Content Management System (CMS) will be a big help to your Search Engine Optimization (SEO) efforts because it will help you create fresh, interesting content, right? Not necessarily.

    Implementing a CMS can be a boon to SEO efforts, many CMS systems were not designed with search engine marketing in mind. Some specific problems that content generated by this kind of CMS has in being indexed by search engines include:

    Search engine optimization is all about good content and using a CMS should ideally help your SEO efforts. However this is not always true, Well CMS does help you create fresh content with ease and this is what they are meant for. Implementing CMS is good for SEO however it can be a disaster as well.

    To reason it further, let’s understand that the CMS are designed primarily to manage contents not keeping in mind Search Engine Marketing. This leads to situation wherein search engines are not able to index such contents. Here are some drawbacks that restrict Search engine access to contents.

    Good CMS is always seo friendly and compatible with all types of websites. For example wordpress is best CMS ever in SEO Technology.
    There are many like- Joomla also and in php we also can make custom cpanel.

    CMS is also easy to understand , to use and to build new website easily.

    There are many tools in CMSs which always helped out in seo point of view.
    For example- in Wordpress there are many plugins used for seo i.e. SEO All in one pack is one of best plugin in wordpress.

    Same like that - many things are very important and helpful in CMS by which we can make site easily and seo friendly.

    Yeah, any good site today should be SEO-friendly, be that any CMS or custom-built framework-based project. An absolute must.

    Hello,

    A CMS in its self is neither good or bad for SEO. IF you change your site by moving to a new technology that creates a different structure with different URLs and link paths (i.e a different site) then it will have an effect, very usually negative. Wordpress is a CMS, and helps a lot with content management but it doesn't do SEO. There are some SEO plug ins that helps and do some basic up front things but they don't do SEO for you.

    Generally, most CMS technology is SEO unfriendly. Back end CMS systems should remain back end and be hidden from the front end.
