    Looks like something someone might add as a tracking url. Did you or someone else add that to some urls to get unique referring codes so you could track PPC or some reciprocal links effectiveness. Maybe someone did it without you knowing.

    I looked at the site in your profile and on Google and didnt see the listing. What search engine is it?

    Have you tried searching for that exact page on the search engine in question and see what shows?

    Something like this in Google:

    "www.yoursite.com?abcdefg/"

    I have found things for clients searching like that.

    Good Luck

    Yeah, In some engines anyone can make a submit with something like (site removed) and it will get picked up...but if you have the base url indexed in theory the one with the ? should go away. I would not worry about it.
