How to condense long stringed URLs

My CTA tracker in Hubspot is adding a long string at the end of a URL i.e.

 

/contact?__hssc=224908101.34373443.1458049689426&__hstc=224908101.316effc92b3410b4aa5b20c28dfac3a4.1453949786565.1457985949811.1458049689426.46&__hsfp=2963515274&hsCtaTracking=283e4dee-c4ff-4697-8329-40d37ad44e62%7C63ff1c61-e20d-4dbd-a680-103ba571ed8f

 

They are all showing as individual pages. How do I condense them into just /contact?

If you want to get rid of it, you can add those extra tracking parameters to your View Setting (Exclude URL Query Parameters). It does not work retroactively.

Thank you. I realize this question has been answered quite a few time. As a noobie I did realize what a query parameter was. For those of you in my boat these are the following parameters to exclude if you are using Hubspot:

CTA tracking: __hssc,__hstc,hsCtaTracking
Email tracking: _hsenc,_hsmi
