    Hi,

    i have a website and now want to add a forum to it i was wondering which option is best for seo and user experience
    subdomain , subfolder or just a completely new domain (i dont like this one lol) ?

    what is the best option (and why please)?what are your opinions ? personal experience?
    is this a good way to bring in some more traffic or its just a complete waste of time?


    Thanks guys ! :)

    Subfolder. It'll inherit the PR from the domain well that way.

    Depending on what platform you're using, there are SEO mods for some, you should look for them.
