Best practices - Using the system query parameters

Managed by | Updated .

System query parameters (s and smeta_*) should be used for system generated input such as parameters injected in hook scripts, or via drop downs in web forms.

System query parameters should be used because:

  • They won't appear within the analytics (usually as very confusing queries specified in the Funnelback query language).
  • Transformations such as synonym expansion won't apply to system query parameters.
