I have a question from those who are familiar with SEO things.

Well I want to know which one is suggested Sub-Domain or Folder ?! and I'm expecting to have good result in SERPs.

I must add that I'm planning to use my home page as article and review section.

A sub-domain will be viewed by the search engines as a different URL altogether.
If your domain has good ranking, I'd opt for a sub-folder over a subdomain.

I don't buy part of this article..

"Google has changed how it views subdomains. Google now views the subdomain as part of the main domain and not as a separate entity, which means the SEO implications of where you put your content are not as crucial as the quality of the content itself.
does anyone have anything to back this up?

Well I'm talking about new established website so it doesn't have any background till now.

About second part I do agree with you and that's the reason I feel confused :confused:

Google's page rank algorithm is what you should be concerned about. Basically your rank goes up when other highly ranked sites publish your link. That means you need good content on your site that is worth linking to, and then you need to try to get published.
