I have recently started to get several strange entries in my log files.

for example one referer string is [search.live.com...]

and it shows a query string of OVRAW=<keyword here>&OVKEY=<keyword here>&OVMTC=standard&OVADID=<number here>&OVKWID=<number here>

these are yahoo PPC parameters. how can they be showing for a referer from live.com?

I DO have the keywords in my yahoo PPC account but its paused at the moment. so that would rule out someone clicking on my yahoo ads and faking the referer.

any ideas?
