Google Dictionary Closes

One-term searches in Google will no longer offer a link to Google’s dictionary website. It’s been shut down.

The preferred behaviour is now to have users:

  1. Conduct a single-term search;
  2. Click on More search tools in the left-sidebar;
  3. Click on Dictionary in the left-sidebar.

Or perhaps mildly quicker, include the word ‘definition‘ next to one’s search. The results returned will include a short dictionary entry, along with links to various online dictionary websites.

Some of the responses to this change can be found via the Google search forums.
