    Hi,

    I am very new to wordpress and I have a few questions. I am building a blog, buddypress, and woocommerce. Will it be smart to build buddy press and woo commerce as stand alone sites?

    I am scared that attempting to put all 3 on one site will kill my site speed and SEO.

    It might slow your site down a very little bit, but your SEO should be fine if you set it up properly.

    I'd just stick them all in one site, if it were up to me.

    In terms of SEO wise, you will be fine, but make sure you are not hosting on shared hosting environment as your site could get resource intensive very quickly.

    Thank you. Are there any disadvantages for putting them into different sites?

    I would put everything in one site and migrate to faster ssd hosting provider

    Well two that I can think of:
    1. People won't be able to use the same logins between sites.
    2. It will be more work for you to set up and maintain.

    If you're going to put all 3 sites in 1, definitely get a cache plugin.

    Should help w/ loading and speed.

    I have a cache plugin and a seo image plugin but I am still experiencing very low speeds. My store has over 10,000 products could that be the issue? Also if my buddy press reaches 1,000-5,000 active users will that kill my already slow site?

    You said you are very new with WP. Im sure you'll face a lot of problems along the way. My advice is to go with one option first. Learn it well and then add a new one and so on.

    First of all learn the basic rules and then start working for better progress otherwise you may suffer in loss.

    Use CDN to speed up your site and remove unnecessary plugin from your site.
