While my boss was looking up something today (with me looking over his shoulder), he accidentally navigated to what appeared to be a fake YouTube site. (He's the sort who types "youtube.com" in a search bar and clicks the first link rather than in the address bar). Is there any chance that you somehow reached a spoof Google site? (It's your description of a preponderance of shopping-related links that has me wondering.)

ETA: One other (remote) possibility: are you signed into Google from some sort of managed account? I found that when I was signed in under my work account, I wasn't seeing all the Google features (even when surfing at home on my personal laptop) because of the restrictions that my workplace places - I signed out, and Google appeared normal again.
