Recently I have updated my site, it now passes a variable on some links like so... www.mysite.com/1234/?play=true

I've noticed in Google Analytics it records www.mysite.com/1234/ and www.mysite.com/1234/?play=true as two different URL's. Is there a way to merge them because they are after all just one page, It makes "Top Content" for example hard to read because of dupilicates.

I've read about something called canonical link tag which may help this? My blog has this already inserted into the head but it doesnt make a difference.

Any suggestions?
