Important: Strange URL pattern in Google analytic and Web master tool

I have around 8+ years of experience in SEO & Digital marketing, first time having some strange problem with landing page report. 

I have encountered a strange problem with one of my website and finding it difficult to know the reason why ?

 

my landing pages report used to be like this....

/                                              ==> home page

/buy-web-hosting                    ==> inner page

/java-hosting                           ==> inner page

 

But recently as you see below, the domain name is getting appended at the end of the each inner pages URL. 

 

Right now, the SEO or traffic is not affected, But can you please let me know , Why this is happening like this ?

 

I have done the 301 redirection using .htaccess

If you want to analyze the source code or find out what could be the problem, please find the domain name from the above image. 

Not placing the URL in this post, (thinking it may be against forum policy)

 

Please let me know what could be the possible reason for it.

Hi,

It looks like someone added wrong filter to the get the complete URL instead of relative path. Instead of appending the host at the first, adding it at the last.

Please check the recent changes in filters for this view/property/account.

If its not then we need to check the implementation.

I don't think, does this impact URL.

Did you checked the filters? Any new filters in recent time?

Hello,

Thanks for your response, But there are some changes in the filter. But those are looks irrelevant to this effect.
What else could be the problem ?

Please check by reverting the filters.

Filters do this kind of replacement or the tracking code on the web site, hope there isn't any changes in the tracking code.
