Creating Individualized Title and Meta Tags
Some Content Management Systems such latest release from Hot Banana Software boast full integration with SEO performance such as offering Conversion Tracking tool, Robots.txt and Meta Tag Management. Other CMS's such as PostNuke.com is struggling to catch up and offer workarounds to make their system more flexible and SE-friendly.
PostNuke.com says that their next version (.8 release at this writing) will be fully SEO compliant. Until then, they recommend pnMeta module, which will give control over title, keyword and description tags over an individual page.

What Does CMS Mean For SEO's?
Search engine optimization experts and others using SEO techniques will need to work closely with Webmasters and developers who use Content Management Systems on their web properties. This collaborative effort is necessary to insure that URL's are SE-friendly and that unique title and meta tags are severed up for each optimized page. A large website with tons of valuable content, should rank well in search engines according to SE's guidelines and CMS technology would do well not to inhibit this, but rather would do well to promote good search engine rankings for large websites.
