Strange String of characters in Keywords

Hi there, I've learned already that a long number string is most likely my Mailchimp account and that's fine, but then there are these other weird strings that start with the word "category_l1" and the source is Google. See attachment. I have no idea what that is, could someone explain it to me?


Thanks

Hi,

are you running any Google shopping campaign? I have seen such strings in case of Google shopping campaign.

 

Thanks

Hi, yes I am running Google shopping campaigns. So that's probably it. Thanks!
