noindexing when parameter c is included doesn't hurt a bit
There's a big difference between ignoring a parameter, and ignoring pages whose URL contains the parameter. You could end up doing exactly the opposite of what you intended.
Detour to raw logs suggests that they first invented "newwindow" --in search, not analytics-- way back in October, meaning I'll never know where it originally came from. Probably from one of those ### search-results pages that should never have been crawled in the first place, and now I'm stuck with their blasted parameters. Grumble.
