    Google Search results - Display url Issue for an Organic Search


    Suppose My Website URL: "https://www.example.com/"
    Many keyword are at good position in Google search results for my websites.
    But issue, my website url showing in search result is not a SEO friendly.

    My URL display in Search engine: "https://www.example.co/?_branch_match_id=291547319262960580" on every keyword.

    It is landing at home page. But why "?_branch_match_id=291547319262960580" this code is displayed in URL?

    I want to displaying "https://www.example.com/" only.

    Any suggestions?

    Hello and welcome!

    So I did some Googling...this article might help you to understand URL structure: Why Are URLs Full of So Many Garbage Characters?

    I found it useful anyway!

    The stuff after the ? in your URL is called a query parameter, I think.

    Google has a help article about how to handle them: https://support.google.com/webmaster.../6080550?hl=en

    I suspect (though I'd like someone smarter than me to confirm it) that you should be using canonical tags to fix this issue.

    Hello!!!

    Your concern can be easily solved. There is an option in Web Master Tools or Search Console "parameter", you can add these dynamic generated URL (_, ?, branch, id, =, etc) in it and then google will consider only your home page Url whenever there is any search related to your keyword.
