There used to be a thing called google whacking where you had to find two words that brought up exactly 1 result. It doesn't work any more now though since Google brings up a load more results.

Yes, Dave Gorman wrote a book about it, then a show - my son saw it.

"Initially googlewhacking seemed to be a pleasant enough distraction. Just something to do while sitting at my computer thinking about how to start writing my novel. I had no idea it was about to take over my life..."

That was a quote from Dave Gorman! He seems to have done OK!

No. "bauchle" "dozenals" which also scores none however neither words are in proper dictionaries.

Not sure if I am doing this correctly, but if this is wrong, will try, try and try again!

Bauchle is in Scots dictionaries and is also defined in Dictionary.com.    Dozenals isn't and that is why I tried it out.    It's the word Aileen used in the Word Transformation game.
