Suffix on URLs - What are they?

Hi, 

 

I been working through my errors/warnings on Google Shopping, and slowly cutting them down. 

 

And having fixed a large number  of Microdata issues for Condition and Price I thought I would go for the missing image issues.  It feels like I have to keep trying to fix the same issues! Smiley Happy 

 

Anyway I noticed today that when I check any issue, and view the URL of the offending product there is a suffix now on the end of the URL...

For example this: www.mywebsite.com/productnumber1.html#fo_c=1765&fo_k=4dc0a1e1111e111111e22222aa044d9&fo_s=gplauk 

 

I have changed it slightly just in case the suffix gives out personal information.  

 

Just wondering what this is?

Hi @Rob W

 

The suffix that you see in the URL seems being added by your CMS or manually somewhere for the sake of tracking. Google does not add anything like that. 

 

The best would be to check your feed setup or tracking templates in AdWords account to get at it. 

 

Thanks
