    1. This doesn't belong in the BH SEO section. This should be in the Blogging section, so please make sure you post appropriately.

    2. Either of them work fine. It's more of a personal preference IMHO. I use both with pretty much the same results from an SEO standpoint. I personally am liking using the category in my permalink structure especially on larger sites. I have found that it gets me more traffic to other articles within that specific category. I believe this comes from people reading the article they land, and then digging around in that specific category since they want more info.
