I don't think there is any danger of posting the url (I will omit the domain)


It looks like a querystring but I dunno what it means. The word 'gold' is in the name of the site. Could it just be a garbled url? I'm using GA (there are a lot of pageviews - like 2% listed for this url under 'content')

Pageviews is very old tracking issue. Better to see other variables as Pageviews is never good tracking variable. As you notice, there can be huge number of Pageviews but actually does not tell you all statistics.

If this erroneous traffic is skewing your stats and at 2% it looks like it's starting to, you should analyze and compare any other tracking programs you have installed as well as your server log files.

A web search on
_kk= _kt=
turns up a few thousand results.
One of them leads them to a blog with "salesforce" in the name, which explains what those parameters are.
