    Why would someone install google play services from an apk store instead of google play store. I ask this because when I googled the version of the service it sends me to an apk store.

    Yes, when you do a Google search, it will end up showing the play store from multiple sites. Nothing out of the ordinary, just stay away from the sites you know are not from Google...
