    I was just wondering what do search engines prefer more, blog posts or forum threads? given that both blog and forum are from one domain.
    e.g:
    10 Travel Tips For Summer

    https://www.domain.com/forum/showthread.php/11616-10-travel-tips-for-summer
    https://www.domain.com/blog%20/10-travel-tips-for-summer


    Do search engines prefer one over the other?

    The reason am asking is am noticing that forum threads rank very well for competitive keywords without much backlinks/PR
