Can I see how an image of me has been used on the internet?

I know there's probably not, but here's what got me thinking about it. I used to work at an alt-weekly a couple years back where different images of me would get put on the internet a lot. I was curious how many of the old pictures were still floating around, so I did a google image search for my "working" name.
None of the old pix really show up (the name is pretty common) except one, which shows up the very first. It's a pic from an industry party, during a time when I had an awful, awful mustache.
I can't figure out why this picture sticks out so prominently on a google image search unless it's been used on a site besides the one it was originally hosted on.
