If I was to pick only one I would go with SEO.
Unless you're out to make money from your forum, I'm not really sure why either matter that much.
I pay zero attention to either, and yet members keep finding us.
SEO is important for every website and SMO is not applicable for some websites...
Not one is better than the other. Both are important.
SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and SMO (Social Media Optimization) both are terms of digital marketing fields. SEO improve a website presence in organic search engine results. So SEO is the process of improving the visibility of your website to your online audience via search engines.
SMO increases the visibility of your business and brand on social media profiles. Social networking activity and your published content so that it is found by people searching for information and resources that relate to your content. Social media optimization helps drive traffic to your website or blog, makes it easier for others to share with their circle of influence, builds the community around your brand and helps search engines index your social media profiles, social activity, and blog posts more easily.
So I preferred always SEO for better results for the website.
It depends on your requirements, because if you wants to get good ranking and organic traffic from search engines then SEO is the best option. And if you wants to promote your products and services or for branding of your products then SMO is the good option for you to reach from a lot of people in without cost.
