Why these hits?

Can anyone explain this puzzle please? I've just started looking for a
program that will take a word and reverse it. IOW, take 'This' and
produce 'sihT'. So in Google I started with 'transposition program'.
From the hits, I immediately realised many dealt with musical aspects.
I also thought I'd narrow it a bit more by including 'word'. So I
re-entered the search as 'transposition program -music +word'.

But in the first page "Results 1 - 20 of about 33,600 for
transposition program -music +word. (0.33 seconds)" I see several hits
that *do* include 'music'. For example
Software Download: Transpose
Use the transposition facilities to aid you in writing music or
transcribing pieces you don't have ... In fact think of it as a
word-processor for music. ...

I'm too lazy to check, but I suspect that the word 'music' doesn't appear in
 the page text of the result link, but does in the DMOZ or META description
of the site.
