Googlet? Definiton?

There should be a sniglet meaning a word that is sufficiently recondite that a Google search for that word mostly turns up dictionary entries, i.e., explanations of what the word means are more often sought and given than natural uses of the word.

Suggestions?

Update: Depending on how you count, it may be difficult for definitions to exceed natural uses of the word-- at most, they could roughly tie. If every instance of reading a word can count as a natural use, then presumably only a subset of those will result in someone looking up the definition. Upperdate: But that would be a very poor way to count. Probably it is better to count natural uses at the user, rather than the reader, and consider dictionary look-ups as independent of natural uses.
