You're not missing anything. The "enable internet keywords" looks as though 
it's hardcoded to use realnames. The fallback bit is even added to the 
realnames URL, so it's realnames who would do the fallback, not konqueror.

Nope, realnames have closed, so the "internet keywords" that konqi refers to 
don't work now. Best bet is to deselect the "Enable Internet Keywords" box, 
so that konqi doesn't try it by mistake.

Just use gg: as already suggested, e.g.
gg:british bulldog

Put the search in double quotes if your words should be treated as one, e.g.
gg:"british bulldog"

You can have still use multiple search terms on the same line, e.g.
gg:"british bulldog" "john smith"

or use google's advanced search stuff, such as limiting the search to a 
particular site, e.g.
gg:"british bulldog" "john smith" site:geocities.com

It becomes fairly natural once you've done it a couple of times. Not sure if 
things have changed in the latest KDE3.
