Query parameters are anything after a ? in your URL.  For example;


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.
