Here is an explicit invocation which you can evaluate
first to confirm it works:

    (w3m-search "google-en" "Giuseppe Garibaldi")

If indeed you get the English Wikipedia page as the
number one hit, put this in some init file:

    (setq w3m-search-default-engine "google-en")

Evaluate it, then call `w3m-search' interactively.
