If you pick up the free "Extreme" counter and put it on the page, then it will record the exact details of the hits from Yahoo

You just click on the details and you get taken to the original query, which is given like this, " http://search.yahoo.com/search?S=1&p=cornwall&m=i&n=10&h=s&b=24&hc=7&hs=217 ". That enables you to see exactly how they got you

There are a lot of weaknesses with the Extreme counter, but this in one very good feature
