Weird Referral Links in Web Requests

We're getting weird sites referring us traffic. Today I got some traffic from this url:

Apparently this site is linking to our site which has absolutely nothing to do with salons. I believe the links are being put there for search engine spam reasons - maybe to get rankings via linking to credible sites. Otherwise - I have no idea why a salon web site is linking to a totally unrelated type of site.

The traffic came from Comcast: at 1/3/2009 8:50:07 PM PST

We got another request referred by this site:
from at 1/3/2009 7:59:34 PM PST

Here's a really odd one:
from at 1/3/2009 9:18:40 AM

And this one

We are not putting our site on all these other weird sites - not sure how it is getting there or why.
