That's a combination of the browser history and what appears to be Google Chrome attempting to predict a search.  Chrome/Google are attempting to predict your behavior based on your past actions. No two users will see the same thing.

I believe that Jason is right.  Nothing you can do to affect that.  Except turn off predictive search in your browser.  Won't affect what anyone else sees.
