Magento Search Terms Problem

I’m having problems with the search terms. The first problem is that Zolof The Rock And Roll Destroyer keeps showing up, and shows up every 5 or 10 minutes, even if I delete it or rename it. I have other search terms too that keep reappearing after I remove them.

Another problem is the unusually high hit count for some of my search terms. My site has not been up more than a week, and already I keep getting very high hit counts for these useless search terms like Zolof The Rock And Roll Destroyer. How do I stop this? Is there a search terms cache? I read somewhere that it could possibly also be the result of the search engine bots repeatedly trying to index the search terms page or something else that causes this to happen.

A solution would be so greatly appreciated.

I have, and these terms keep showing up. I read somewhere that this is the result of search engine bots or something like that that keep searching for the same terms over and over as the result of indexing the search terms page.

Could you try going to : ADMIN: System→Configuration→Catalog tab→SEO panel. Set “Popular Search Terms” to "Disable." and see what happens ?
Happy new year
