PHP or Coldfusion? - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

My question is that which one is more search engine friendly language? CFML or PHP? People say that since PHP is more popular than coldfusion so PHP is more SEO friendly than Coldfusion how far is this correct?. Please ignore other things like page content ,links etc. And second question is :-Our company 's most of websites are in coldfusion now or MD is telling to convert it into PHP because it is free and in terms of long time sustainance and SEO friendly.. Is this a correct move?...

    There is no such thing as a Search-Engine friendly web technology (asp, php, coldfusion, perl, et al). It all depends on what the URLs to access the pages look like.

    What Kronin said is a myth. Modern search engines handle messy query strings
    fine. Pretty URLs are still nicer for people, though, and certainly easier to
    p for a computer, if you want to split hairs. But a query string is not
    going to ruin your SEO campaign. If anything, and approach like this will:

    "Please ignore other things like page content ,links etc."

    In other words:

    "Please ignore a couple of the things that matter most in any sensible SEO
    effort."

    Fantastic.

    Straight from the horse's mouth (Google, in this case):
    http://www.google.com/intl/en/webmasters/facts.html
    Fiction: Sites aren't included in Google's index if they use ASP (or some
    other non-html file type.)
    Fact:
    At Google, we're able to index most types of pages and files with very few
    exceptions. A sampling of the file extensions we're able to index includes:
    pdf, asp, jsp, html, shtml, xml, doc, xls, ppt, rtf, wks, lwp, wri, swf, cfm,
    and php.

    If you decide to use dynamic pages (i.e., the URL contains a "?" character),
    be aware that not every search engine spider crawls dynamic pages as well as
    static pages. It helps to keep the parameters short and the number of them few.

    Don't use "&id=" as a parameter in your URLs, as we don't include these pages
    in our index.
