I'm about to launch a new website soon. I'm leaning towards http://www.squarespace.com as my preferred CMS. It's very SEO friendly. It's designed with CSS and XHMTL in mind as well. It also has it's own blog software to it as well. My current comp looks like this; http://www.onetree.squarespace.com

I haven't done the domain mapping yet, hence the long url.

Can anyone recommend me a CMS that is SEO friendly and allows me to install my own blog software as well, say Wordpress or anything else for that matter.

I really don't need anything complicated. I've seen Mambo and it's just too much and I really prefer to stay away from opensource. I'm not a tech guy and like most businesspeople, I don't want to spend time trying to construct my website when other important matters can be attended to.

Can anyone provide any recommendations?

Thanks.

If you want a CMS software to be installed and run on your own site I recommend you search for one in http://www.hotscripts.com. Search for PHP based CMS, they are by far the best I have tried.

You might want to have a look into these open source CMS systems. This is the best resource I know of:

The greatest advantage with a CMS solution is that you can actually spend time running your business vs spending time managing and updating your site. Im not certain you should exclude open source altogether, as their are some really great products available - however, if lack of support is the issue, find one of the many providers that offer application hosting & support for these packages.

Mambo and Wordpress would be my two top choices. BTW choosing a cPanel + Fantastico host will most likely offer you the option to install either of those with a click or two.
