On Google search tapping in the box often does not bring up the keys. Sometimes impossible to invoke a link within a list of links. Resetting is not the answer.

Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.
No, I've done that many times.
