Search results listings are different than the content pages themselves. They’re also different than the links to the pages, which are often selected and created in context by content managers.
Search results usually include the page title, a short snippet of text (from the meta description tag, the first few lines of the page, or an automatically generated snippet), and a URL. Focus on these elements to ensure the page is found and that users can understand why a result is relevant to their query. Focus on the pages’ content and structure to ensure it is ranked appropriately by the relevance algorithm.

In some cases the links on a CMS website content management make a big mess out of the hierarchical structure of information on the website. It can be fixed, but there are a lot of CMS users who don’t care about SEO and just use the defaults — which are usually not the very best for SEO.

Some of the most important technical restrictions and challenges in a SEO process are caused by the content management system in use: From its code cleanliness, flexibility to optimize specific elements, the options to organize its structure, to its scalability.

Of course, beyond the capacity of the CMS itself, the knowledge about what to optimize is vital, otherwise you would end up having a great platform that you just haven’t effectively configured -which unfortunately also happens a lot-.

A web content management system is used to control a dynamic collection of web material, including HTML documents, images, and other forms of media. A CMS facilitates document control, auditing, editing, and timeline management.
Some CMS(content management system) systems support user groups. User groups allow you to control how registered users interact with the site. A page on the site can be restricted to one or more groups. This means an anonymous user (someone not logged on), or a logged on user who is not a member of the group a page is restricted to, will be denied access to the page.
Available in most modern CMSs is the ability to expand a single implementation (one installation on one server)...Read More
