Search term

<information science> An element of a search or query.

A search term is the basic building block of a boolean search or a weighted search.

In a search engine a search term is typically a word, phrase, or pattern match expression.

For example: cosmonaut or "space travel" or astronaut*

In a database a term is typically the comparison of a column with a constant or with another column.

For example: last_name like 'Smith%'
