Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
If Google are going to keep playing with this, I'm going to set up some QuickSilver methods to grab this information from elsewhere and forget using Google for my dictionary lookups.
Is any one surprised? I'm just susprised that Google kept Dictionary for so long.
The other quirk here is that the phrases seem to be longer. Previously "search engine optimisation" was seen as two words; "search engine" and "optimisation". Now there's a link to Answers page for "search engine optimisation".
Why doesn't Google simply change it to define:keyword like [google.com...] for "Webmaster". I am pretty happy with the various definitions which define: command gives me. It's on target.
I clicked for the definition, not for a whole lot of articles from various sources, including wikipedia.
A search for 'Neil Armstrong' on both Answer.com and Dictionary.com shows very different results, so to me it's not difficult to see why Google made this switch. A good move I reckon.
I've been using it for a couple of years now and it's great.
