For a brief period of time yesterday, the Last Result blog apparently was a top result for the search "Chelsea Clinton" on Yahoo:

This was the post:

Not sure how that happened. New code release? Maybe it was one of the "also see" results.

Anyway, search Yahoo now and it appears the problem has been solved:

Dear Webmaster -

Over the past few months the SEO company we used built bad, artificial backlinks. As a result our website received a penalty from Google for artificial backlink creation, which is a violation of their T.O.S.

We are now going through the process of cleaning up, and removing, all backlinks that were likely created by that SEO company. The backlinks found on your site, are likely some of the links we are referring to. You can find the links pointed to our website at the following locations on your site.

We recommend that you remove the links as soon as possible as we'll be filing a reconsideration request after all websites have been contacted. Those sites that don't remove our links could potentially face a penalty once Google reviews the sites that still have our links up. During this manual review stage Google reviews all sites with our backlinks as well, which is why your site could potentially receive a penalty.

By removing the links to our site as soon as possible you'll reduce the likely hood that you receive any penalty.
