is an online forum really profitable?

Have a plan.

1. Find a niche that currently has no forum/bad forums and could do with a good forum.
2. Create the forum.
3. Get traffic via SEO, PPC, PPM etc.
4. Wait until you have an established community.
5. Monetise.

Very simplified of course but a basic outline...

yes, but the amount of work involved is far more than running a blog. i ran a couple of forums which made good money but I was constantly trying to promote and keep the forum active.

mind you, I knew nothing about keyword research/seo back then, so it might be easier if you do all that right.
