I'm migrating from another software with a subdomain for forum.website.com and trying to decided if it is better with Xenforo to make the switch to www.website.com/forum or stick with the forum.website.com setup. I see lots of discussion, but not real answer, especially when it comes to Xenforo foums.
I know that if I move to /forum (or /community) it is easier to integrate other software and the main website as well as, eventually at least, it should increase my search results. But when moving from another software where I'll have lots of 301 redirects is it better to cut the cord and go to /forum right away or continue with the forum.website.com setup for now and decide later?
Is there really one reason to go one way over another?
