This appears to be a w3m bug or the w3m-mode bug and can be reproduced 100%.

Summary:
The results from using Opera, Safari, Firefox, in google search seems to differ from results shown in w3m, for certain url string.

To test, try this url in Firefox and w3m/emacs:

http://www.google.com/search?q=%22The%20computer%20wizards%20at% 20Industrial%20Light%20and%20Magic%20help%20alchemize%22

standard browsers shows many results, top one is this time mag article:
http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,981238-1,00.html

Safari, Firefox, Opera seems show identical results. (some has cookies turned on, some not, so this search shouldn't depends on cookies)

but in w3m it just shows one vocabulary page on my website that quoted this phrase.

This is PEBKAC, just remove the %22 quotation marks.  With them, the
above URL shows only one result in any browser I've tried, including
Firefox and Konqueror; without them, w3m and other browsers show many
results.

Fortunately, Google does not seem to discriminate "non-standard"
browsers yet.
