Found 50+ instances of this when reviewing Google Analytics/All Traffic/Channels report.   They all are list as separate landing pages for my site.  One is  /?kw=casa, another is  /?kw=sweepstakes.  All lead to my site homepage if you click on them in the GA pages or if typed into address bar. Overall Site traffic is way off as well.  These individual /?kw= pages normally only show 1 or so hits in the last month.  Are these harmful, or should is just filter them from my report view?
Thanks, Gale W.
