I think it is forum. More people will click it because it is short to read. Well, just a not PRO opinion.

I could not agree with you more...
Ever since i started learning what to do online, you have successfully giving me the right answer in the shortest and most simplest way of understanding the difference between blog and forum.. Not only that, but the way unique visitors and content generation is done

You can create a fourm on your blog and vice versa. Which kind of site is more profitable depends on number of factors. However, one thing is true that you need to spend a lot of time to make money either from forum or from blogs.

I have been posting on forums since a long time, based on my experience as a forum poster, I can say managing a active forum community is very difficult. The moment, you stop rewarding, your forum will be deserted.

But they are also forums which don't pay users yet they are active. An example is Digital points and BHW. They are popular and am sure their owners earn a lot of money. To me, a forum is much better to manage since it is a user generated content as opposed to a blog where you must provide the content.

Yes, there are forums that do not reward the users, yet they have more users than paid forums. The reason why they are big is because they have experts. On most of the paid t post forums there are novice looking for making few bucks

Blogging sites are easier to rank than forum sites but paid to post forums can be ranked soon.
Best example is Digital Global.

Totally agree with you. People go for such forums for reasons for example seo learning or even marketing and any other. Now I know why many forums which are free with no rewards sometimes have more members and participants.

Blogging sites can be ranked easily because these sites have contents and these contents can be easily optimized for search emgines. Contrarily, forums have short posts and there is not much rooms for keywords.

@kat82 I also see more people active on non paying forums than paying forums. I always check forum coin stat and it never shows more than 100 "recently active members." However, on the non paying forums like bitcointalk, there are hundreds of active member

The nonpaying forums with a large user base has been in existence since many years, they are niche specific, they are ranked high. However, most of the paying forums are small.

I believe that if you are able to create a good forum than you will attract more traffic because with a blog you have to create the content by your own while in a forum the members build it for you. The problem is to set up the forum and to attract the members to it, to do that you have to build a good marketing strategy and to be patient because nothing is build in one day.

Forums bring more traffic to a website. This is because for forums, there are only few words to be written and they give direct answers to people's questions that they may want to know.

That is one major difference between a blog and a forum. I have a blog and I create contents for myself. I participate in forum posting and I create contents for others.

I agree with you on that if the blog is optimized for search engines it can do much better than forums. However, finding the right niche and quality content would be the challenge.
