    This structure is ok to use if you have a large niche blog with many different categories.

    For smaller blogs permalinks structure /%postname% works wonders...

    Hope this helps...

    The Structure /%postname%/ is better than /%category%/%postname%/

    sometimes we want to transfer Post From category To Anther category

    /%category%/ is useful for getting extra keys in the url.

    Make sure category is marked as indexed and do include your keyword in category to get the maximum results!! ;)
