Not sure if this is the correct forum for this, but since I'll be mainly concerned with Google, thisi will probably do - Mods, feel free to move if necessary.

My question is, does anyone have experience optimizing a site using the content managment system Documentum? In theory, I think I could just program the templates to create pages that would be read well by the search engines,but the CMS is creating some code that I'm not sure Google is going to like.

In general, how do you guys go about working with a site that uses a complex content management system? I've optimized a site that was partially maintained with interwoven, but it was easy to manipulate interwoven to create separate titles, metas and header tags. Documentum likes to use a lot of javascript to format, which I'm not thrilled with.

Any insight would be helpful. In the meantime, I'll search past threads and post any I find in this thread.

I was working with one a few years ago and frankly, it was a disaster. But the site sold sold stock photography - a nightmare - since it was mostly graphics, little copy, and the KWs were very competitive.
I'm sorry I don't have the tech knowledge to really answer your questions, but maybe this bump will attract someone who does...
