Subdomain or path based? Which is better SEO

First of all, can I choose subdomain or path if I install WP multisite with softaculous?
If so, which will be better for SEO? and which will be better for performance in general?
I have read many articles and searched many forums, I need to make up my mind on this one, I'm using a VPS with WHM and Cpanel.

Thank you in advance.

    Hiya,

    Thanks for your post.

    First of all, can I choose subdomain or path if I install WP multisite with softaculous?

    I think "No" you can not. I have personally never done a auto install and have always relied on the manual install and believe me, I have never run into any issues till now.

    If so, which will be better for SEO? and which will be better for performance in general?

    Well, SEO really depends on the content of your sites, blogs and pages. It does not depend much on the URL structure however, I have always preferred subdomains over subfolders. Primary reason is that it looks good. It gives a professional touch and its also used on the biggest prosites network - Edublogs :slight_smile:
