Something like this "index.php?PHPSESSID=915b544745c391d5d125b1f276594ccd;wwwRedirect"

I really want to get rid of "PHPSESSION" in the URL, it is on all my links, creating all kinds of issues with SEO on google, I want a clean forum, what's the best way go about getting rid of phpsession forever?

Thanks

That depends on whether you care about having an accurate number of guests or not.

If you care about the number of online guests being accurate, then no, you can't get rid of it, simple as that.

Are you *sure* you don't care? I won't get into talking you through the code changes unless you're *sure*.

Experience shows that anyone who cares about SEO also cares about the number of guests as a metric for change and improvement.

The other question: are you using queryless URLs or not?

I have no idea how to do it with Pretty URLs, only the base SMF code - because the Pretty URL mod rewrites the bit of code where PHPSESSID is reinjected back into the page. You should ask the mod's author, not that pretty URLs actively helps SEO (as evidenced by this site)
