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?

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,
