MWS:How to handle Pages

I have a question regarding the “rightway” to make the pages in MWS.

After we’ve made the portlets, we need to add them to the pages. Now, I can add them to a page under Public folders (or) under a folder above this i.e. parallel to the public folders.

Which one is recommended ? if so, Why ? Has anybody faced any problems implementing it outside the public folders or any advantages of placing the folders inside public folders (except the general answer of - its accessible to everyone stuff) ?

Thnx in advance,
