I performed a Google search on Joomla and found one website that claims it is bad for SEO because it makes use of tables, and does (here is where I got lost) "something or other" that makes the html code not too search engine friendly.
I clicked off the window before I realized I probably should have looked at the date of the article (to see if it is relevant to the current Joomla version).
Anyone heard anything like this?
The Joomla 1.5 series is much more SEO friendly "out of the box" when you activate the built-in SEO features. I have several sites using ONLY the built-in SEO features and they do quite well.
And there's quite a few SEO add-ons that let you tweak SEO even more if you feel the need.
Was that site offering solution? Or just trying to sway you to another CMS?
People say you can't blog with Joomla too. ;)

This is going to sound bad....but I can't code a site for nothing. Found that CMS's can be tweeked to the way I like. I don't like Wordpress because it looks too bloggy, even with the free templates out there.
Saw some really cool looking Joomla templates that make the website look like a website...instead of the bloggy look that Wordpress has.
No, the site was "pro joomla".
1.5, I think you'll do just fine with the built-in SEO features. Once you get rolling you may find other tweaks you want to add.
You don't really have to doing much coding with Joomla if you don't want to. There's a lot of great templates out there.
Adding components, modules, plugins is pretty easy in Joomla.
