I plan to start blog on my ecommerce store.
Which one is the best choice? Both search engines and users.

What you asking is called subdomain vs subdirectory.

Subdomain for Google is a competently new website!
Subdirectory for Google is an extension of the present website!

Sub-domain is used to get more relevant domain name and sub-directory is used to improve the current website SEO!

Actually using ecommercestore / blog for your store provides you following two benefits

1st) Good SEO result as its linked as a main domain not subdomain
2nd) No need to purchase different SSL certificates for main domain ecommercestore and blog ecommercestore , you can purchase SSL certificate for main domain ecommercestore and it will cover ecommercestore / blog

URL remains for Uniform Resource Locator. A Uniform Resource Locator goes up against a specific arrangement through which you can make associations or potentially get to data utilizing different conventions. A URL is the worldwide address for an archive or asset on the web. URL linguistic structure: convention://domainOrIPAddress:port/way/filename.

It's hard to say if sub domains are better for SEO or not because it depends on many other factors.

If you already have created e-commerce website and now you want to add blog section then suitable URL will be e.g ecommercestore.com/blog which is suitable for the SEO point of view.

Blog URL depends on the Title you have selected for the particular blogs. Every single blog's URL should be structured as per the Title.

In my opinion both url structure will work fine, if you are trying to promote your products and services then a directory will suit you more and if you want to publish the news and events information then a sub domain can be more effective. There is not any much difference in seo for both url structures you can go with anyone.
