The idea is about search engines aiding all the HTML documents that are about a certain topic and want to intersperse hyper-links to certain terms that appear elsewhere on the web. Of course, I, as an author of a document that references such concepts or terms, don't want to waste time on finding the exact web-page that demonstrates it. The intent of such a link is to provide more information about that term anyway. Then, why not have a facility like:
- <a seref="Effective Java">Effective Java</a>
This is useful for the author because when the author does not really want to be specific to point to a known document, s/he can always make use of search engines which are supposed to provide more up-to-date information on a topic of general interest. More importantly, it examines if search relevance that search engines tout about is any good!I told ya -- it is wacky , but I just implemented this in my previous post.
