Hey Tedster, Googlebot is crawling 100's of bizarre search pages on my site every day. They are not Google Search referral pages. Where Googlebot got all these weird searches, I have no idea! I've tried to find the source, but no luck.
I suspect that Google no longer relies on following links to find new pages now. Google may have found your search urls by seeing what users with the Chrome browser actually land on when they hit the search button. It is widely thought that Google will snoop on the contents of Gmail emails to looks at any urls contained in them that it hasn't seen before, I suspect its using data from Chrome and Android users to do the same.
