    Hi,
    I have a PR6 site and it's growing. recently i thought to launch a web hosting reviews section in it.
    I am confused which one is better, shall i use a new subdomain on it or installing wordpress on subfolder will be better.
    I meant
    like
    Code:
    http://hosting.mysite.com
    or
    Code:
    www.mysite.com/hosting
    which will be better.
    with latest PR update i saw that all my inner pr 0(n/a) pages that i had created within last 10 days are now pr4

    Any suggestions plz?

    Thanks

    Folder without a doubt. Once you create a new subdomain you lose any juice in the metrics that have to do with the domain, authority being probably the most important.
