Joomla 1.7, Blogging and E-commerce

I'm planning on doing a formal introduction of Joomla 1.7 (Joomla 1.8 has been changed to Joomla 2.5 and it will be released in December of 2011 if all goes well.) We already have ACL and many cool features i.e. The 'redirect component' and I'll be introducing all who make it out to our meeting to three topics, Joomla 1.7 core essentials, Blogging with Joomla 1.7 and E-commerce with Joomla 1.7. The Blogging will be handled by EasyBlog which is a powerful blogging application for Joomla, the E-commerce will be handled by RedShop for Joomla 1.7.

    Actually, I'm not saying that, but I do believe it's true. On the other hand, you have to remember that wordpress and joomla are not the same thing. Wordpress is a blog that can be used as a CMS. Joomla is a CMS/MVC that can be used as a blog. Although you can do anything in either one, joomla seems more versiatile than wordpress. I don't know why wordpress is so much more popular, because joomla seems so much more easy to customize to me. I'm guessing that wordpress is designed for the non tech

    Do you mean to say WP is more Google search friendly while Joomla is not ( at least now) ? Just curious trying to understand from what perspective you are comparing the 2.

    I'd like to know how friendly Google is to joomla. One big reason Wordpress is the blogging/cms gorilla in the room is greatly because of it's google friendliness. I've been searching the net to find out about googles friendliness to joomla, yet there is not much on it. On the other hand, when I search on this topic about wordpress, there are seemingly endless good search results Nevertheless, for some reason, I still have a feeling that joomla is a good choice. Please help me out with this one.
