    Not really unless you're trying to target a keyword in the category name. /%postname%/ is your best bet as mentioned above.

    I use /%category%/%postname%/ , especially if your autoblogging and need to categorize posts.. I thought "yoast wordpress seo" had an option to strip the /category/ anyways..

    +1 for /%postname%/ -- especially on a smaller site. MFA's for example.
