    Using the /category/ format for your site allows you to add an in URL keyword to the page address. This can reinforce the keywords used on the pages in the eyes of the search engines. With a static site you can do this by adding a sub-directory named by a general keyword for the content and then using more specific keywords in the page file names.

    Earlier I believe domain.com/product.html was preferred as Google used to give better weightage to it. It was said the more you categorize, the less it will get optimized. pages like domain.com/category/date/product was seen like immature.
    But now categorization has become important. Hence domain.com/category/product.html is preferred. Still I don't think it is going to make any big difference if your strategies are good.

    It will depend on the size of the website to properly determine which is better for optimization.

    domain/category/product.html is the best URL structure .. this type of ur structure explain it self. anybody who see this type of url can imagine about the contents of the pages. this is good for humans and search engines to understand this url structure.
