I am just wondering if anyone out there has used Microsoft Expressions and if they felt they had any SEO limits compared to other technologies. I am used to working more with Joomla, WP and just custom HTML sites. One client is being told by their advertising firm they need to use Microsoft Expressions but I am not as familiar with it and what I have read so far wasn't exactly positive. Anyone else had any experience with it?

So the advertising firm is driving the client's technology decisions? That seems a little backwards to me, but whatever.

Haven't used it, but from what I can see the web module appears to be similar to Dreamweaver. The natural successor to FrontPage, but (with any luck) without the annoying HTML re-writing.

As with most tools, it isn't the tool that makes the difference for SEO, it's how the tool is used. Just as with Joomla, WP and others, you can create sites to be highly SEO friendly, or highly SEO unfriendly depending on how you set stuff up to start with.

I wouldn't be too concerned about the specific tool. I would be concerned about a client that lets their advertising agency decide what technology they're going to use, though... ;)

It looks to me like people are using it to develop widgets and it's especially useful for designing things in Silverlight. However, Silverlight is not exactly "search engine friendly" from what I understand. It's definitely not "Michael friendly" in my opinion.

Your mileage may vary.
