Hi,

I want to know what are what are query parameters and how does it affect quality of data? I'm not from a technical background. A detailed explanation will be helpful. 

 

Thanks!

Query parameters are anything after a ? in your URL.  For example; example.com?type=new&color=blue

 

type=new&color=blue are query parameters.   Sometimes session id's are added e.g. ?session=lkdfglkj3459djkf  and this can fragment your pageview data as each would be different.

 

You can exclude them by using the exclude query parameters in the view settings.
