    Really doesn't matter.

    If the forum isn't deeply integrated into the site (eg, with sign up) then personally I think a subdomain is better. Shows it's a functionally different site and not just a feature of the main site.

    I would surely recommend you to read this article : Subfolder vs SubDomain for SEO

    It will give you all the information you need to decide whether you should have a subdomain or subfolder.

    Since Google Analytics serves first-party cookies for each different domain or sub-domain, this will mean that sub-domains aren't tracked as part of an integrated whole site. But they are integrated if they are part of a subfolder.
