That might be a good idea to host the subdomain in the country im targeting
You seem confused about what is a meant by a subdomain ..a subdomain is books.example.com..the "books" part is the subdomain..in the same way in www.example.com the www part is actually the subdomain of example.com..
example.com can have many subdomains..
Each part before the first dot is a subdomain..
And hosting each subdomain in a separate country isn't on..
are each completely separate domains..
And hosting each of them in a separate country is ..and works very well..better than hosting them all in the same place..
and so hosting
in separate countries is on ..and is very good :)
When you see www before the name of a domain like www.example.com..it is pointing you to the subdomain ..the domain is actually example.com..OK :)
And 10 pages is fine for a domain ..there is no minimum size that works..even one page is enough..I have some domains that are only one page and that are at number 1 or in the top 1-5 in serps of nearly a billion results for short "money" keywords ..in very competitive "niches"..and they have ridden out all Googles updates ..including all "pandas"..they just "bob" a little like fishing floats when a wave or a ripple goes by..( and that is just because the others near them are moving ..like happens with fishing floats and ripples in real life ).and then within a day or two they are back at or near the top..
And they don't have huge numbers of backlinks..
you could also have
Each part before the first dot would be a subdomain of example.com ..and you could host them all in the same place..that will work ..but you wont rank as well in each separate country doing it that way as if you did a separate domain for each country and hosted it in the respective country..IME
plus ..if they are completely separate domains ..hosted in separate countries ..anything happens..server down ..fire in a DC..panda ..whatever ..you might lose the one temporarily ..or maybe drop some places with one or two ..but a problem won't take all of them down at once .."eggs and baskets" :))
