If you want to create a Forum/Community on your website, and you are a shop too, should you put the forum on another domain to not hurt SEO/Ranking? Or should you use a subdomain or just put it right on your salesdomain?

If you want to have an answer from Kyle directly there are two ways to do it. You can catch him in chat round about 1 o'clock GMT or you can put a question on his profile page. He is unlikely to see your question here so we can't answer it

I'm answering blind on this one but it would make more sense to have a subdomain. I have seen forums connected to websites but I would rather go for the sub-domain option.

I have seen both, but no examples or knowledge of the difference in traffic helping or hurting.

Hey Rune, good one, This is something I might want to do too so I'll hold onto this and check back to see input from those who know more about it.

Great question. I would have thought on the same site for convenience but that's not based on experience.
I will look forward to reading the answers.

Lily 😁
