The placeholder or variable used in the <Url> element of an OpenSearchDescription XML file to show where the user's actual search terms should go. For example, this dictionary's Open Search description (published in file /search.xml) includes the following element:

 <Url type="text/html" template="http://foldoc.org/{searchTerms}" />

meaning that to search for, say, "foo", you should go to http://foldoc.org/foo.

You may have reached this page because you were trying to use some system based on Open Search and failed to supply any search term to substitute into the URL.

Open Search reference.
