Real URL or Analytics reports creating a URL that doesn't exist?

We are seeing a URL or two in our reports that does not exist. It shows some time on page, etc. but that page results in an error...We have set up our reporting to be able to see the domain name in page reports - could that be causing the issue? Is this a real error or is the reporting configuration giving us false URLs? Please advise! Thanks!

Check "Default page" option in view setting. In most cases it should be blank.
If you have placed there your domain name  (www.hess.com) it should be removed.

Thanks for the speedy reply. So was that not a real URL then? I removed it but will that only fix it moving forward?
