For more help you can use with -h option

msf >searchsploit -h
msf > searchsploit -h
[*] exec: searchsploit -h

  Usage: searchsploit [options] term1 [term2] ... [termN]
  searchsploit afd windows local
  searchsploit -t oracle windows

   -c, --case     Perform a case-sensitive search (Default is insensitive).
   -h, --help     Show this help screen.
   -t, --title    Search just the exploit title (Default is title AND the file's path).
   -v, --verbose  Verbose output. Title lines are allowed to overflow their columns.
   -w, --www      Show URLs to Exploit-DB.com rather than local path.
       --colour   Disable colour highlighting.
       --id       Display EDB-ID value rather than local path.

 * Use any number of search terms, in any order.
 * Search terms are not case sensitive, and order is irrelevant.
   * Use '-c' if you wish to reduce results by case-sensitive searching.
* Use '-t' to exclude the file's path to filter the search results.
   * Could possibly remove false positives (especially when searching numbers).
 * When updating from git or displaying help, search terms will be ignored.
