Question: Is it more difficult to optimize a website for search engines when the site is created in a CMS (Content Management System) and not in a software such as Dreamweaver? My company’s website is created in a CMS, I’m not sure where to begin?
Answer: Not necessarily. Many of the major CMS platforms like WordPress or Drupal are quite good in terms of SEO, if used correctly. Remember that to Google it does not matter HOW a website is created; it matters what the HTML output is vs. your target SEO keywords, tag structure, etc.
So many companies use CMS systems for SEO and do just fine. It’s the output that you must pay attention to.
