I’m curious to get everyone’s take on certain keywords. Seems like there are some keywords that everybody seems to use, but seem like to me like they would be unnecessary and I wonder if anybody ever searches on them.
Words like background, commercial, advertising. I wonder if any customers actually search these keywords because, of course the music’s function is as a background, often in a commercial setting, and frequently in advertising.
I’ve taken to excluding words like this from my keyword list and instead opting for more mood and feeling based keywords. Is this a mistake? As far as I know we don’t as authors get any data on how well any of our keywords perform. So if I stop using keywords like “background”, am I missing out on possible sales?
What are your thoughts, kind humans?
