With the business world being as diverse as music tastes it is easy to come to the idea that any type of music could be business music depending on what business you are using the music for. Business is one of the most used keywords in searches so it makes sense that most contributors want to use it in conjunction with their files. Therein lies the problem; if every audio file is tagged with the key word Business, a search for Business is really like saying you want to search all the music in the iStockaudio collection. The keyword Business quickly becomes redundant and is non productive for searches.
Business, as a keyword, in a visual search returns results that display board rooms, handshakes and all manner of professional people dressed in business attire depicting all types of business like behavior. Of course there are many types of specialty business that are not identified with this search but most buyers are looking for typical or expected results. Within audio searches for Business we are defining the term to pair with this type of typical or expected imagery.
