    So, I've got a high traffic wordpress based website around a topic. I would like to create a forum for my site. I will use phpbb or mybb.

    Should I buy another domain and just link those 2 sites together or should I create the forum on a forum subdomain of my main site?

    Also, if I would like to publish articles written by forum users on my wordpress site, will google see that as double content / content stealing?

    Do both the more different kind of backlinks you have the better. Remember the Search Engines never want to see the same thing. The more diverse backlinks you have the better. Just pump out those links!
