Your online store optimisation needs excellent SEO to perform better and to drive the desired ROI. In the case of SEO play, OpenCart has some limitations and somewhat restrict the user from performing some needy SEO modifications.

Magento lets users play around with SEO and allows them to optimise titles, URL’s and even connect a store to a WordPress blog for better reach.
