In fact, there have been a couple of occasions where people have come here to ask for help on ranking for a specific phrase, and the thread they started on this board has ended up ranking more highly for that phrase than the actual page they're trying to work on... :doh:
If your board has lots of good content and gets a good number of inbound links, it should do fine without a mod_rewrite of the URLs. So if the only reason you're doing that is because you think the board won't get indexed without it, you can save yourself the trouble.
Of course, if you've got other reasons (i.e. other technical considerations or you just don't like the way the URLs look), then you can ignore what I just said.

I do get good indexing but im just wondering, what if the forum had html pages & no querys & session id's, would i do better?
I suppose this might aswell be a poll now & i'll judge after if it's worth it...

You might wanna check ur server settings - I think its:
session.use_cookies = 1
but dont quote me on that - ask Randy
AFAIK if users browser/or server says cookies==false then url sessionids=true.

I was staying out of this discussion because I'm not familiar enough with IPB to know if the code starts a session as a default or not. I assumed that might be the case since lots of boards do that to track users.
Toopac, I'm sure Scottie can answer this question since she (and Alan I think?) configured this board, but they're both either still in Chicago at the SES conference or on the way back home. She'll be able to tell you for sure what was done here.
It may have been as simple as allowing Guests to read the threads. I don't know though.
To test LiLo's idea, you might want to upload a php page to the same domain/server, but not part of the forum itself. Then pull up that page in something like Delorie's Header Viewer or plug the page address into WebBug to see if there is any mention of the server sending a Session ID.
If it does, it's probably not IPB. It's the server. And if that's the case there are ways to change it, either in your server's php.ini file or via .htaccess so that only your domain is affected.
