I am little bit confused on sub domains and sub folders as far as to what is the best choice concerning SEO with Google.

My website already has a page rank of 2. Now I want to create some more sections. Should I go for a sub domain for these sections or a sub folder? Which one is better in terms of SEO, if any?

Also will my present page rank follow in all my sub domains or do I have to promote individually all sub domains. What is the case for sub folders?

As far as the visitor's standpoint, what is easier to remember? A sub domain or a sub folder of a website?

From around 2008 Google started seeing subdomains the same as subdirectories.

My general rule of thumb is if the content is completely different a subdomain is well worth considering. Maybe you're setting up an online store. Then why not go for a 'store' subdomain? A lot of big players like Apple do this.

I find subdomains generally easier to remember as well if they serve a sole purpose.
