    I'm not an expert, just a programmer, but I would think that jeans.com/women would be better since I know from a programming standpoint www.jeans.com and jeans.com can be seen as two completely different sites.

    I prefer publishing or promoting my links in subdomain format. But not for SEO reasons. They just look more readable because the .com is not in the way. But technically (not always), both forms are still available from the browser because a subdomain is just a subdirectory.

    honestly, and I know some may disagree, but I think both are fine. I have never seen any difference between the two.

    makes no difference

    a subfolder can become an authority intranet like a subdomain

    yes for seo propose it's the thing...
    only advantage for subdomain is that some directories will accept them as different sites :cool:
