How to exclude URL query parameters from the URLs tracked, and from Pages reports?

You can exclude various parameters from the URLs so that they will not appear in the “Actions -> Pages” report.

To set it up, please log in to your Piwik PRO, go to Analytics Settings -> Websites -> Settings, and provide the parameters in the Global list of Query URL parameters to exclude field.

Each user with ‘manage permissions’ can also exclude query parameters for specific websites, by editing particular website’s settings.

You can exclude regular expressions such as /^sess.*|.*[dD]ate$/. Piwik PRO will automatically exclude the common session parameters (phpsessid, sessionid, etc.).

Once you enter the parameters to exclude from your URLs, please note that it will only influence the data that will be tracked after the settings change. (URL parameters will not be erased from your previous reports).
