Adword string breaks website

I use PHP to create many of my websites to help with maintenance, mostly by putting items used by all pages in a site such as header, footer, menus, etc. One of my customers hired another company for marketing. When they sent viewers to the site through the paid ads, there is a string that gets appended to the end of the URL: /?keyword=%2Bkuecker%20%2Blogistics&gclid=CIL55sDS9NMCFdC4wAodApULLQ


The problem is that it "breaks" all of my website pages!


Here is an example:


Without ad string: http://wiseguysconstruction.com/


With the string: http://wiseguysconstruction.com/about-us.php/?keyword=%2Bkuecker%20%2Blogistics&gclid=CIL55sDS9NMCFd...


I've already "fixed" one website by making paths to css, js, etc., relative, and I had use full path URLs in php files I pull into the page with the menu.


How do I avoid this situation in the future?


Thank you.
