Do you know the effects of SEO by removing category from permalinks?

    I've written about 20 articles, so far on my site, and I've got around.. 30 that's unpublished at the moment for a new category.

    The thing is, I don't want to show the category on the title anymore, for certain reasons..

    Now, I'd rather work this out now and not worry about it later once I have over 50 articles on my site..

    So, I'm a bit scared of what it could do as far as SEO goes..

    Let's say I removed the category from the permalinks (/%category%/%postname%/) and just left it as the postname, I would need to do a 301 redirect from the old links to the new ones correct? And that would be it?

    I found this question that's a bit related, but I'd rather ask again as I wasn't able to find a more detailed answer.

    it's kind of pointless with that yeah I've tried, here is why, google is just exhausting so much time on manual review and even calling up companies. If you can't verify your website with a phone number or contact or be represented as like a fortune 1000 company, then it's kinda useless with seo.

    I spoke with a business owner and she told me that google gave her a call to verify things -since she ranked #1 for keywords.

    So gooddlluckkkkk with long-term seo without an address or verifiable information to confirm on your website.

    Uhm, I do have a easy way to contact me, just don't out up my phone number unless requested personally.

    But uhmm.. yeah.
