These don't seem to be actual urls on your site, so I don't think you have been hacked, this looks to me like referral spam.

You might be able to help the situation by having a sitemap for your site, there are several extensions that will do this for you, eg os map, I suggest taking a look in the Joomla extensions directory and finding one that you like.

That is the point of having the site map, it tells search engines which are the real urls on your site.

Actually I think on looking at this again that your site probably has been hacked, I suggest that you follow the cleanup instructions here: viewtopic.php?f=714&t=946026
