    But why not to make both?

    Blog comments, by their nature, are seen by google as something less natural by default. While a forum post is something more "editorial", UGC.

    Forum posts if they are do-follow and relevant can boost rankings really nice. I don't know about blog commenting, never bothered with that or know any high do-follow ones

    Both of them are good if you don't spam ;)

    I use both periodically. Both of them are equally effective minus spamming.

    As far as seo goes they are both bargain basement techniques, they could be argued away as community building.

    As an aside, forum posting can bring a nice add to organic traffic, especially if you spend time and make an impact then people will click on your links. If you come across as spamming then not so much.

    What are you trying to do? Destroy your site? Both are equally effective in that case.

    Blog commenting is very effective, but it depends on many factors.

    I'd avoid those as it's a waste of time building such links manually. They're however very useful when used as tier 2/3 links and built in volume using GSA.

    What's unnatural about a blog comment?

    I suggest both. Forum posting is good and so is blog commenting. It pays in my book to do both.

    Blog seems to have a better outlook imo. Forum posting is good too, but tends to look like spam.
