Google Analytics

I have a question about query strings I assign to my links and then captured by Google Analytics.  I noticed only in one occurrence Google identified my query string as when sorting by Region I was able to break down by Landing Page which included my query string.

The query in the url: http://mysite.com?myquery=individual

What I do is send an email, to each respondent is a query with a different string attached (whever it may be, 1, 2, 3, etc).

How can I add ?myquery=   - so that google captures it everytime.  I do not want to use Google assigned Queries, can I not use my own?

I specifically want to know if I can capture the entire link that is clicked in an email as a landing page, then cross analyse with specific demographics etc. within Google.

Suggestions?

Hi FreshIntel,
You can track your campaign URL using google URL builder, the result can be traceable in google analytic result.

Thank you x_com,

The problem is this is not exactly what I need, and I was aware of this.  I am not tracking campaigns per se .

I need to track my own query string, I cannot modify the query.

I  am testing something out now, I believe I have determined the issue.  It had to do with a script prior to the code.  I think it striped the query, and now am waiting to capture.

Thank you,
