All I can say is WordPress - and totally agree with David Miller on this.

It's out of the box SEO friendly, especially when you deploy the Yoast All-in-One SEO Plugin: WordPress SEO Plugin • XML Sitemaps & more! • Yoast

Other platforms like Drupal and Joomla are just inherently SEO unfriendly.

I know one SEO who didn't like WordPress and was convinced it was SEO unfriendly just because you couldn't edit Page titles with it. It's so untrue.

The problem with other CMS platforms is that they're built in academia to solve problems that don't exist in reality. Drupal's nodes and auto-tagging are fine, until you have 50 pages.

I'll pick WP+Yoast for

  • Instant Category and Tag Pages 
  • Very easy to make responsive - you dont have to build a separate site or theme 
  • Instant XML Sitemap (RSS Feed and Yoast) 
  • WP Pingomatic automatically pings Google and Bing for you 
  • Ease of integration for Analytics, Webmaster Tools 
  • SEF and Human-friendly URLs 
  • Great for social sharing icons 
  • Easy to use page/post editor 
  • CMS options from Woo etc 
  • Tonnes of free and commercial plug-ins
Syed Farhan Raza, SEO Scientist & Internet Marketing Consultant

Well, SEO not have much to do with CMS technically but the UI of some make it better then others. 

On-Page SEO on wordpress is much more easy and highly recommended for the standard websites specifically when they are being run by non-tech.

How to use Keywords in Website Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

A keyword is a term that is used to match with the query a person enters into a search engine to find specific information. Most people enter search phrases that consist of two to five words. Such phrases may be called search phrases, keyword phrases, query phrases, or just keywords.

SEO Keywords are the phrases in your web content that make it possible for people to find your Website via Search Engines. A website that is well optimized and offer relevant content might get higher search engine organic ranking.

These days, keyword optimization, due to keyword Spamming in the past, has been reduced in importance by search engine like Google.
