What is the sid= after my URL in phpbb? Why do some users see this and some dont? How do I remove it?

If you don't have cookies enabled (or cookie settings are borked), the SID will appear; its purpose is maintaining your current login, so that you are able to perform tasks on the forum without having to enter your username and password over and over and over again.

Well I don't see them, only guests do. How can I remove them?

The problem is that my google analytics page shows each post more than once because they all have different SIDs

What's that mean? How do I fix it? Will that get rid of the sids?

Thanks,

I must have done something wrong. Now I'm seeing the sids for myself and am not staying logged in. What should I do?
