    type your definition into google with speech marks around it, this makes google search for that exact phrase, not just the words alone.

    As a sidenote, you can also type define: (any word here) into google and hey presto, you'll have a definition.

    A combination of the above may spring up some results too; type define: (your definition). This isnt an actual trick that google does but the search terms may work.
