Yahoo! Search Results for real daughter photos

So here's something I don't quite get regarding search results. In my log for my web site, I have the following search:

Ash Sharqiyah, Dammam, Saudi Arabia, 0 returning visits

Date Time WebPage
30th March 2005 05:33:27 AM [URL to photos of my daughter on my web site]
search.yahoo.com/search?p=real daughter photos&ei=UTF-8&fr=FP-tab-web-t&fl=0&x=wrt

So that means that someone in Saudi Arabia ran a search for "real daughter photos". Why? (Do I want to know the answer?) And why would this person click on my site? Does Yahoo ping a site when search results are returned, even if the searcher doesn't click on the results? I doubt it, but my daughter's page doesn't come up anywhere in the first few pages of returns (that I could see). Add my daughter's name and it comes up as the first result, but without it, it's certainly not obviously, let alone click-worthy. Yet, it appears, someone hit it.

So it's a mystery... and just plain weird, if you ask me.

I can understand search results related to my Human Resource Development classes. And I've already talked about those desperate Kari Byron fans out there who hit this blog... but this one is strange! And, as I say, I just don't get how Yahoo's search results work...

But, hey, at least Yahoo returns results for my site! Can't say the same for Google... yet. But maybe that'll change?
