You can read more about this in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNS_hijacking#Manipulation_by_ISPs and http://arstechnica.com/uncategorized/2007/06/sitefinder-redux-verizon-tests-dns-redirect-service/

See this screenshot. If you press the Google icon you will be directed to a Google search.
Wow, I can't believe I missed that. Thanks so much!
