i have some misconceptions to be get rid of..plx. do google not index the pages of social networks? do social networks could not get the organic traffic? is this true google gave more respect to the forums than social networks (google shows more results of forums in search)? in buddypress there are forums too, how google see those forums? with the view of webmaster, technical pros and cons of, social networking vs forums? and the last one is this better to create just a forum or a forum with social network i.e buddypress or more better all of them to create a dynamic site having a forum with subdomain?
