    I am currently using wordpress on a couple of sites, they don't and never did rank brilliantly. My question is - Is wordpress still ranking ok or are people jumping ship and going with another cms or custom script for there websites ( after the google updates ). Looking for peoples opinions please.

    There is absolutely no reason it wouldn't rank. It's the best and most popular CMS so you should stick with it.

    I think that means you need to do some better on-page SEO.

    WP is simply a CMS.

    Can't blame your ranking on CMS can you?

    Unless you're talking about the free blogging platform..vesus blogspot?

    Wordpress still works perfectly fine. More websites use it than any other CMS out there. No reason for it to get slapped.
