[ILUG] Google weirdness -- gamed or hacked?

I have had a result from google that returned a bunch of weird
links. They all lead to what appear to be fake search engines, and do
not correspond to the URL displayed.
Some of the destinations have apparently invalid hostnames (e.g.
find.tj) but resolve locally to 88.151.113.*
Moreover, the search had "site:ul.ie" as a qualifier, so the reported
URLs are all within UL but are non-existent.
I presume something is broken -- is it my Firefox/IceWeasel, local DNS,
