It could be that the anchor text pointing to these pages from some
other web page had the terms you searched for in them (or near them). 
A la Google's famous "evil empire" search pointing to Microsoft, even
though Microsoft's page didn't have the words 'evil empire' in it.

Some further evidence.  I tried two Google searches: "classgrabber
registration agent frank" and then the same query without "frank". 
The former returns no pages, while the latter returns "about 32".
