Hello,

I want to start a new project and for this I want to set up a domain with forum, blog and later also a affiliate shop.

But I don't know which of them should be on root domain and which one should be on subfolder?

My Shop will be definitely on Domain.com/shop

But I don't know about forum and blog

1. Domain.com -> Forum and Domain.com/Blog -> Blog

2. Domain.com -> Blog and Domain.com/forum -> Forum

The problem is i'll use WordPress for Blog and Shop and for Forum i'll use MyBB.

Another thing is I write like the first weeks each week a new post and after a few weeks I become lazy and than i write maybe 1 on a month.

Forum is like always a nice talk and user are active and I can post a new post when I want.

Are you only going to post things on your site or are you also going to invite some guys? I like forums more. because you can get a lot of information from there.

Why don't you create a splash page and guide users from there

Ah guest posting.
Actually no but it could be possible. I like also sponsored posts of some niche related products.

But i think forum should be in focus and the blog should may get some traffic and user check my forum aswell

A splash page and user can decide go to forum or go to blog?

If my root domain is that splash page will this affect my serp?

Domain.com -> Splash page
Domain.com/Forum -> forum
DOmain.com/blog -> blog
