I understand now.

The default URL is mainly for telling GA what your homepage is so that it doesn't duplicate hits to the likes of www.example.com and example.com

You don't have to set this at all. You're putting your landing page or a tracking URL in. That's not what this field is for. You should just leave it blank. Alternatively, just enter your home page or root domain URL. 

The tracking code goes in the code on your website. However, for an affiliate sire, you will not /can not get any stats or reports once the visitor leaves your site.

I would HIGHLY recommend that you learn how GA works using this free resource before continuing. https://analyticsacademy.withgoogle.com/explorer

You'll get a lot more benefit if you know what it does and does not do.

Thanks again for info.
Please let me clarify if I understood what you have mentioned.
But I do not have any website and I just got that landing page url from landing page creator where I am a member of it.
so do you mean there is no any way I can track it even if I put the google analytics code into it?
Thank you

sorry again but it does not allow me to leave it blank from analytics with no input for url as you said.

You can track it if you can put the code on the page. But it will only track pages with the code on it.

Enter the root domain in the field.

I'm very concerned that you don't really know what you're setting up though or indeed why. I'd encourage you to watch the fundamentals videos that I linked above as that will explain everything.

Hope that helps.

Hi シアマク ア,

The Default URL field is required and as you have already noticed, it cannot contain query parameters.
