Recently I’ve seen people talk about the idea that search engines profile websites partly on the script they use. This idea makes some sense to me because it is possible to make reasonable accurate generalisations about some CMS systems:
WordPress = blogs, so they need to be updated regularly to rank well. Many great, high-quality blogs, but theres also a reasonable change that your average WordPress installation is a splog, give the large number of people using automatic RSS importers.
Gallery2 = photos. Often little accompanying text, which doesn’t make for great SEO material.
OSCommerce = shopping carts, so clearly a commercial site, and one that may be short on text and interesting articles.
Pligg = social news, often short snippets of articles from elsewhere. Little original content except comments.
Joomla = ….. ?
