Probably the best response you will find comes directly from Google: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uJGDyAN9g-g

It doesn't really matter.

Unfortunately what Google says is NOT always the best.

 

Sub-folders are preferred over sub-domains. Google says the two are equal, but data from tests and professional SEOs like Rand Fishkin, say sub-folders are far stronger.

 

SEO efforts like link building are dissipated from a sub-domain structure. If you launch into a new country, you don’t start from ground zero because of hreflang tags, but it is close to it.

 

Sub-folder usage would be most beneficial for stores with multiple domains that serve the same products to different regions. If WordPress could be setup in a subfolder, that would be a bonus.
