You could start blog and forum on same site with different sub-domains, however, it is necessary to keep maintained the both blog and forums, if you could do so then you could start.

You didn't face any problem if the forum and blog is placed on same domain because both platforms are different as well more information also will gain at one place.

There is no problem use blog and forum on same domain. Both are used for making backlink for website. They are helpful for website ranking.

If you have running blog, then I suggest to go with subdomain for forum, because there is some benefits :

>> Google will not penalize your whole site in future for low quality content, Generally, when people ask any question, and there is no answer, then it is consider as low quality webpage.

>> You can provide someone else(like developer or programmer) to control your forum without affecting to main domain.

>> You can host your forum on other server for better security. May be there are some good host that works cool with forum software like Mybb or vBulletin

having blog and forum with same name is a good idea to improve your brand name, but there is no disadvantages, if having another name to your forum, proceed with same name....

There are no problems in using the blog and forum on the same domain. The main thing that he was not low-level. The remaining questions are a matter of technology. I can advise you to read materials about domain zones and their prices https://hostings.info/domains . This will allow you to more accurately understand their specifics as well as form your pricing policy. Naturally, the specification of your blog and forum for getting natural traffic to it also plays a big role.

Truly, joins are critical to SEO - however, consolidating powers into one site is considerably more dominant. A solitary connection from your blog isn't so important as every one of the connections your blog will get from different destinations after some time. By having the blog and the site in one area, every one of your connections will profit a similar site.

Very good points! Especially these days where quite a few forum sites have been pinged by Google. Forum sites are perfectly valid of course, however, since so many low quality forums have existed, Google now sees forum based sites as being low quality overall even when they may not be. As well, forum sites generally are not topically focused as well as a post based site. This means that they can potentially dilute the search potential of a post based site.

Both the forum and blog should have integrated registrations/login so if you join or log into one, you're automatically a member of or logged into the other. (4) Both the forum and blog should be able to share a theme or at least be able to install the same theme on both installations for website consistency.

Every blog needs a foundation. Blogging platforms (sites, content management systems, software – some people refer to it differently) provide that base and a framework that you can use for starting a blog.

Yes, you may. Using a single domain for your blog and website is a good idea.

One of the prime reasons being that it allows brand recognition. Assuming you are a business or an individual using a website and a blog for commercial gains, having the same domain for your blog and website can catapult your brand.

-Hope this helps :)

Yes! You can use single domain for blog and website.

There are multiple ways to create it:-

You can use www.yourdomainname(dot)com for website and www.yourdomainname(dot)com/blog for blog.
You can use www.yourdomainname(dot)com for website and blog.yourdomainname(dot)com sub-domain for blog.
I will recommend you to use /blog for your blog because If you’ll create sub-domain for your blog then google will recognize domain and sub-domain as two separate websites.

In a nutshell, the Blogger platform is better than WordPress when you are creating a blog for no other reason than you want to write.
