I have a WordPress blog (blogging and technology niche) with 10,000 monthly traffic from search engines (95% from Google).
I have decided to add a forum using bbPress to that blog (
www.example.com/forum/). I can't maintain high quality content on the forum. Yes, I can remove spam posts but still there may be lots of thin low quality content on the forum.
So can this hurt SEO? Also, will it cause me to lose my current search engine traffic?
