Non existent links in All Pages (content) section

Hello everyonw, we've just realized that since a couple of weeks our All Pages section on Google Analytics (Behaviour -> Site Content -> All Pages) is plenty of links that actually don't exist. Looking at the host name looks like it's the good one (myartguides.com), however we have hundreds of links like the following: /?pagerd_iws2bc07ldi= ; /?pagerd_cx2dstf0f6r= ; /?pagerd_fro9sa1c3di= that when opened go to our homepage. Bounce rate is always 0% and Avg. Time on Page is about 2-3 sec. Any idea on what it could be? Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

These look like Ghost referrers. Create a new view and you can use filters to remove these, then you can compare the data to see what other kind of affect they are having on your data.
