Since 10 days, I've been learning Joomla in order to transfer my ordinary-html site into CMS-joomla site. My findings regarding SEO are:


- If you're not careful with joomla (i.e. if you're not aware of traps which joomla brings regarding SEO), your site can become a SEO-disaster. Examples:


- There are joomla-extensions (not backbone-joomla, but extensions independetly develloped by third-side-programmers) which will build-in hidden links into your site, i.e. links which user doesn't see but google-bot sees them. As result, your site can even be banned from google-index. (Just search following on google for further readings: hidden links in joomla). (Cure against this problem: 1.To carefuly examine and select joomla-extensions which you are installing. 2. After installing extension, go to source-code of generated page and check for outgoing links; there are internet-based-tools for this task.)


- Duplicate content problem. This is maybe (I'm not an expert - this is my first cms) common issue for most of CMS softwares. With some joomla-extensions, and maybe with backbone-joomla itself also (I don't know yet), especially if you don't use joomla's or joomla-extension's adjustings properly, you're site will be full of pages which can be delivered in web-browser with many different url-s. As result, google will index many different url-s for the same page - and as we know G is not happy with that. (Further reading: go to forum.joomla.org and search for: duplicate content, or for: multple url's.) (Cure: I think there are different approaches. One is using canonical tag - search in youtube for: matt cutts canonical.)
