Will a Site Search URL as a Landing Page be recorded as a Site Search?

I have a problem where in the landing page URL are picked up in Google analytics with a preceeding slash. Here's what I mean. Suppose my Landing page URL is website.com/mypage.com

I would expect the URL website.com/mypage.com?gclid=somewierdlookingrandomnumber

But instead, this is what I see in Google Analytics

website.com/mypage.com/gclid=somewierdlookingrandomnumber

 

In this case the second will be a 404 page. I can't seem to understand if there is something am doing wrong or is it Just Google Analytics.

Hi Uloko

This is a tricky one and can only be resolved by using a filter with a custom regex in it. 

I'll refer you to this guide (the second one) with the video and exact expression you need to use:
