I have a confirmed opt-in list set up such that once a subscriber confirms their email address, they will be redirected to a page on my site (.../email-list-opt-in-confirmed). I noticed something in my Google Analytics recently that I thought I'd ask about here.
I am seeing some data in GA that indicates I am getting traffic to the above page, but there is a portion of traffic to that page that has URL parms attached to it resembling the following:
When I search my subscriber list for "firstname.lastname@example.org" (actual email address scrubbed out here to protect the innocent ;-), that person is not on my active list or my unconfirmed list.
Does anyone know why I get this odd (parameterized) traffic and what it means?
Mystery solved. Silly me. I am experimenting with another email list tool and the confirmed opt-in landing page I mentioned above is also used by this non-CM tool. It is that other tool that is adding the URL parms, not CM. Sorry for the red herring.
No worries - thanks for letting us know! The above did look a bit unusual ;)
