Why is auto tagging corrupting our landing page?

We want to utilize auto tagging, but when it is on, a string of code is added to the url and for some reason our landing page doesn't load completely.  Is this a webmaster issue?  I have heard that we can disable or bypass this problem with our own code...?

Hi Joe,

 

Welcome to AdWords Community.

 

It means your web server is not handling the random characters properly in URL and it is misinterpreting it. You should contact your web developer/server-administrator. There can be easy fix for the same. 

 

Thanks

Hi Joe,

The random string of characters that is getting added to your URL is the GCLID that is generated on an ad click. Normally, web servers are equipped with handling this id being added to url's but for some reason your web server is not picking this up.

As Ratan suggested, you should probably get in touch with web developer to check if you can ensure that the addition of GCLID does not affect your landing page URL and that the page loads correctly.

Also, you can read up on GCLID here: http://www.wordstream.com/gclid

Hope this Helps!
