Hi! My name is Stephanie. I am a web developer in San Diego, helping clients build successful websites. I’m trying to help my client build a forum on his website. In Paul Nicholson’s fantastic youtube tutorial about disclosurehosting.com, he recommended creating a subdomain for the disclosure forum. However, my research suggests that most websites build their forums on a subfolder instead of a subdomain (source: https://www.seoblog.com/install-forum-subdomain-root/)
What are your thoughts? Should the forum be placed on a subdomain or a subfolder? How do I place a forum on a subfolder?
Thank you so much for all your help!! Much appreciated.
