Weird Referral URLs

Ok, I put in this sitemeter for monitoring the traffic on this blog. Was just curious as to how many people read my blog as I never seem to get any comments :(
Sitemeter has other fringe benefits like referral urls and a nice graph representation of the traffic and also, a traffic prediction functionality! it is a nice service and one of the few things that has emerged is that I am getting a lot of traffic thanks to Jaya. In fact, I get almost all my traffic from her readers! Thanks, Jaya!
But there are other referrals that have started emerging, thanks to google/yahoo(which is powered by google). Check these out -
http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=does%20shah%20rukh%20khan%20have%20liver%20cancer&meta=
http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=If%20you%20watch%20one%20movie%20this%20year%2C%20let%20that%20movie%20be%20Black.%20Sanjay%20Leela%20Bhansali%E2%80%99s%20Bl

http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en&q=sanjay%20leela%20bansali%20is%20a%20crap&meta=

Well, I suppose some are understandable but some of them are just ridiculous like the one with "common words used by americans and indians..." as its search string!

Anyway, it definitely is interesting to analyse the traffic...

I confess I'm one of the people who visit your blog from Jaya's... I think that's because she blogs more regularly, and I have her blog on my bookmarks- and it certainly is convenient to come to your site from her's :)

I am leaving you a post because I feel your pain - I have gotten a grand total of 2 comments EVER, and only one recently.

However, may I suggest (as I recently posted to my own blog) that you embed your comment form?

I got my first (and only, haha) recent comment shortly after I made my comment form embedded. I think it helps because it takes one less step out. You can click my name to check out my blog. I've got a compilation called "Blogging for Beginners" with a bunch of little tips - that included.

Anyway, I get weird referrals too. Which is how I found your blog. =)
