My experience is with Joomla.  Joomla itself has some wonderful seo capabilities, especially with its SEO extensions, most of which are free or almost free.  You would want to use the latest version of Joomla, which is 1.7, and make sure the extensions you use are 1.7 compatible (some 1.6 are 1.7 compatible, so check their forums too.)  http://extensions.joomla.org/

With Joomla's extensions, such as Sh404sef you can have separate title tags from meta gags, meta description tags, keywords meta tags -- each different for all pages.  

So far as your directory is concerned, check out the Joomla extension Sobipro   http://sigsiu.net/sobipro.html  It's not free, but is inexpensive.    Be sure to check out its roadmap:  http://sigsiu.net/sobipro-roadmap.html

Sobipro allows individual entries to have metatags, etc.  I'm using Sobipro for a chamber of commerce directory I'm building, and so far I like it.  Since Sobipro is a separate extension from the core joomla, I haven't checked out if I can have separate title tags with each company's description, but Sobipro does let you include each entry's own description and keyword metatags.

Be sure to check out the Sobipro forums so ensure its a right match for you.  http://www.sigsiu.net/forum/

Hi

Well Joomla. 3.3 includes Microsdata for SEO.  While I haven't taken advantage of that yet, here's an article about that feature. Microdata in Joomla 3.3

and
More on Joomla 3.3 microdata

So far as site performance, the Joomla router has been improved with additional improvements on the way:   Below quote is from http://joomla-seo.net/Blog/joomla-3-3-microdata-and-performance-improvements

Performance should also be improved considerably in Joomla 3.3. According to this blogpost on the Joomla Community portal the Jrouter library (responsible for the way URLs are created) has been improved considerably, with tests showing an average of 10% performanc increase. Also Jrouter will probably see more improvements in the release to come.

Also this feature is something you do not have to do anything for, just enjoy improved performance!

Hi

I only use Joomla.  No experience with Drupal.  So let's see what a Drupal person says.

Maybe a new question is needed by you (rather than this closed one) to get new responses from Drupal users, who did not participate in the original question.
