K2
I like K2, its one of most popular joomla componets. and I'm really sorry to say that this component is not SEO friend because each item in the website is reachable with different URLs. Since 2 months ago that I installed K2, I have thousands of duplicated articles in my "google webmaster" account, and this problem will affect strongly on google organic traffic, so your site will die as my website. I tried to find a solution on official K2 forum but there were many request about this problem without reply or solution.

This is not entirely true. Let me explain...

Duplicate entries depend on your menu structure. If you have a menu that maps all your K2 categories (or at least the most imporrtant ones), then you won't have duplicate entries.

To further mitigate that, one of the things we want to add in K2 v2.5.7 is canonical URLs to prevent Google from seeing duplicate item entries (if they exist).

That should further improve K2's SEO features.

Unlike the default Joomla! content or other CCK extensions, K2 already sports much better SEO. From the "read more" links which contain the item's title, to the images, to author links etc. etc. ;)
