Obviously a forum doesn't *need* a blog but is it a good idea to have if getting visitors from search is important?
I ask because it seems that an editorial blog post which covers the gist of a forum thread in detail is more likely to be well ranked than the forum post itself.
I see some sites creating posts just to talk about a forum thread's subject just to outrank the thread right now. Many of these link to the thread, including some to WW.
