can someone tell me why a URL is showing in analytics in two different ways - one normal and one appended with ?twitter=

Hi Dennis,

 

Can you share with me WHERE you're seeing this URL with the appending of ?twitter= ?

 

For example, if it's in your Referral Traffic reports, it can simply be that that's the URL that someone actually entered. Or it could be a crummy implementation of a social share widget. Knowing where you're seeing that in your reports can help debug.

 

Best, David

Hi David - 

 

i'm seeing it in site content > all pages 

 

my instinct was that it's just a poorly implemented ad campaign through twitter but wasn't sure

 

I'm seeing it twice in the same table:

 

1. /loremipsum?twitter=

2. /loremipsum

 

thank you for any insight!

Hi Dennis,

 

That'd be my assumption as well.
