I did encounter the same problem many times and I tried a few variations 
but it seems there is not an "exact" search.

For example, I was looking  for powerful (A001694) numbers but since 
"powerful" is translated to "power" I got thousands of results: I had to 
enter a search like 4, 8, 9, 16, 25, 27, 32, 36, 49, 64, 72 to find the 
actual sequence.

A simple search of a fixed string would be very useful.
