    Bing shows query strings?


    I'm new to this forum and SEO in general. My question is about the query strings bing shows within urls

    Does bing generate these strings on it's own?

    My website url is clean and short and when searched for on bing it comes up with a long list of numbers and symbols etc. When you click on the result it shows the long url with query strings etc in the address bar but this is not the url if you find the page by going through the website navigation.

    I am wondering if anyone can explain;
    1) why this happens
    2) if there is a way to change this it in the bing results?
    3) what are the implications of changing this / is it worth it?

    Why do you even care? It's way too complex for you to understand. It has nothing to do with SEO.
