    Sounds like a browser plugin adding something to URLs for tracking purposes. Try disabling any installed browser plugins to see if you can isolate the problem – Clive Jul 19 '12 at 10:10
  • Are you redirected there even if you directly visit: example.com/rndsite page? – Aram Boyajyan Jul 19 '12 at 13:59

Do you have an AddThis widget on any of the pages? This is a known issue with that widget. to resolve change this portion of the snippet:

var addthis_config = {"data_track_addressbar":true};


var addthis_config = {"data_track_addressbar":false};
  • No problem. I ran into this same issue before. Nearly drove me insane. Glad I could help. – Desmond Morris Jul 30 '12 at 20:32
