    Well, now I need to take huge decision for my new project, if I have to go with subdomains or with subfolders. Basically subfolders will be better for future brand name but I am planning to rank my pages with blackhat seo (I am very carefully with it) but it may happens that I will get penalized, so thats why I am thinking to switch to subdomains to avoid penalty.

    So what would you choose ?
    example.com/category/page --> better brand
    == or ==
    category.example.com/page --> avoiding future penalties

    Thank you for your opinion :)

    if you going to use black hat seo just go with subdomain. it will restrict your penalty to sub domain level only

    Go with sub folder. If your site has a overall great backlink profile I don't think your rankings will suffer much with moderate black hat seo. Of course if you are planning on spamming 100k backlinks I probably go with sub domain.
