Sorting Yahoo Referers

I recently installed a referer log program to log each referer to our site. It logs the time/date, referring page with exact parameters, and page on our site that it hit. (I'll be adding the time spent on the page, too.). This is to enhance the other logging programs in use.

The referer log script is executed in the main cgi program before the page is sent to the browser (it's a dynamic site). This is to log anyone/thing leaving before the page is loaded.

Is there some way to determine the various services* from where the Yahoo! referers are: *Product Submit, Overture, Images, Shopping, organic listings, etc?

In other words, is there something in the URL parameters that I can look for to determine from which Yahoo! service (listing) it came?

Thanks for your help!
