We are thinking to develop a custom integration where we want to use IPB as a commenting system for our website.
When a article is posted on the site, there will be a automatically created topic inside IPB for storing article comments as forum posts.
What is your opinion on using internal's CMS commenting system (similar to wordpress internal comments) vs bridged forum commenting system ? What would you choose ?
What is best practice for SEO ? Forum topics generated automatically for comments storing will have same identical title as their related articles ......
Do you think we will get more traffic if we have separate pages generated inside our forum for article comments or is more wise to have those comments implemented in article page ?
Also, there is a case scenario where articles will not get any comments so we will have a handfull of empty topics (just first post that is basically an article "preview" with a link back to that article on the site)
