All that kind of stuff can you handle in os commerse, look for all kind of plugins for that cms and you will find what you are looking for.

|URL's, title tags, meta tags, and keyword tags |
If, despite Ove's suggestion, you still want to dump OSCommerce, Wordpress and Drupal both have everything you want with plugins (and more - custom robot meta tags and things like that). I'm sure others do too.
I'm surprised you're running an article-driven informational site on OSCommerce as it's intended as a shopping cart engine.

Regarding my use of OS Commerce: yes, you‚Äôre right, I got talked into this basically, and am now trying to find the very best platform for this type of site.

Wordpress CMS should follow your guidelines for the title tag, Meta description tag, keywords and file information.

Joomla will also do this well. There are a few plug ins that handle SEO very well. The most popular one is also free.
Also, Joomla is particularly well suited for article sites.

Could you expound on why Joomla over Wordpress as
related to articles...

|I need a CMS that allows complete control of URL's, title tags, meta tags, and keyword tags. |
MODx does this too.

I think more do than don't. Other requirements might be more essential in terms of whittling down the list of potential CMS. Since so many are free and open source, you might try a couple and see if they seem intuitive to you.
There's going to be a big difference between the way ModX does things and the way Drupal or Joomla does things. I'm not even sure which I prefer really, but it's a very different feel.

kennydubose, I can't compare the two as I am unfamiliar with Wordpress. I was just stating that Joomla is an excellent environment for publishing articles.

From what I've seen in this discussion, it seems like both Wordpress and Joomla are the top CMS. It just depends on which one you are most comfortable with.
My basic concern is picking a content managements system, learning the ins and outs of it, then realizing that it does not help with Search Engine Optimization.
Is it safe to assume that by picking either Wordpress or Joomla I won't run into this problem?

>>it seems like both Wordpress and Joomla are the top CMS.
I'd say they are two of the top but there are a lot of good products out there.

I'd say do a google search for CMS and use the one that comes up #1.
| 7:35 pm on Oct 14, 2009 (gmt 0)|
Well, I'm not sure that would prove anything, especially since when I do a G search for CMS I get the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid government site for #1, a wikipedia article on CMS for #2 and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid government site again for #3.
Of course searching for "content management systems" brings up wikipedia, then drupal then joomla and no wordpress on the front page. Does that mean that drupal is better then either joomla or wordpress?
I would suggest that anyone wishing to implement a new CMS should seek out an authority forum on each one and search for terms that are important to their particular needs. This way you can see what others have already gone through in each CMS relative to what you find important.

I have clients that run a large travel site on Wordpress MU - so far the SEO capabilities have impressed me with the various plugins they have added.
