I have been running a coldfusion site for many years.
We originally chose it so that anyone at the client side offices could log-on and easily update content in real time by themselves. That function has worked like a dream from day one.
Getting a good ranking in the SERP's was difficult during the site's early days. After a year or two the site did achieve the rankings we wanted. I am not sure if that was due more to the SE's learning to accommodate CF sites, the maturation of the site, or my efforts at SEO.
Today we have a stable position in the SERP's, above the fold, for the dozen or so keywords we need.
People tell us that CF is "out-of-date" , but then hasten to add "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
