I've noticed a bunch of errors in the error_log file like this:

[Mon Apr 08 04:15:44 2013] [error] [client 94.222.181.164] File does not exist: /serverpath/for-business, referer: http://www.somewebsite.com/somepath

When I go the referring page and search through the source code, I cannot find a URL to our website. I'm baffled. What's causing these errors?

Had a duh moment. Downloaded both the access_log and the error_log and located a single error in the error_log, noted the ip, date/time stamp and then found the corresponding entry in the access_log That gave enough information to chase down the issue, a missing image file called by the CSS and another called by a JS file.

I was about to suggest looking in SSI, CSS, JS includes but you figured it out.
