New Cms Allows 'skipping Directory Names In Sequential Order"

They say that their new CMS system allows them to skip a directory and display a URL that looks like this:
As far as the search engines are concerned there is no problem with either URL but they are asking if the new option is better. I'm telling them it doesn't matter.

The "standard" URL you gave doesn't look all that bad. The shorter one is, well, shorter -- which could constitute a non-SEO reason to favor it, assuming people might see or use the "bare" URLs on a regular basis -- but other than that I can't see a huge advantage (or disadvantage, for that matter) to it. I'd say they could go for whichever one they want without it making a lot of difference either way.
My adjusted for inflation.

Take this for what it's worth, given that I can't remember the source. It stuck with me as credible, however, which is unusual.

I typically advise people to use the shortest URLs possible for people's sake and not worry about search engines.
But they definitely want to make sure they are CONSISTENT and that they implement good redirect mapping.
