    Hi guys.

    My site is related to an easy KW.
    And my site was at the rank #1 in this KW.
    Since I was getting a lot of users for my niche, I tought to open a forum related to my site.
    I thought that a forum would have been able to deal with other niches. And since I was getting many users on my Main Site, I tought that my forum would have been ranked well on google.
    So I tought to get more money, since the forum would have attracted users from other niches.

    For share the juice from my main site to the forum, I adde a do - follow on menĂ¹ of my main site (just a link). Then I disabled comments on my contents.
    Then I opened discussions in my forum for all of my contents. And linked them with do - follow (well, that wasn't volontary anyway)

    Of course was a bad idea.

    My forum gained some DA (now is 12 DA) but still 0 PA and didn't ranked well on google.
    My main site dropped to fourth position. Was stable in fourth position for Jan and Feb, but now dance beetween the #5 and #6 place.

    There is a way for fix all of this mess and gain some rank? I tought maybe moving the forum (now is in an external domain) to a subdomain of my main site. I guess external link should become internal link. But I'm not sure and now a missteps could be the death of my site.

    My main site at this moment have around 1,000 backlink coming from the forum

    If your using VB and wordpress there is a plugin to integrate them so that the comment are the forum discussion. I would think this would fix your extreme linking issue and let the powers that be see that it is an integrated forum and not a huge link spam website.
    The plugin is called vbsso.
    Just my two cents. Good luck
