Automatically add links, based on searches for selected text, and aggregate that data.
Created by: JamesNewton
if you select text on a web page, right click, and search for that text, then select a specific document from the web, you could send a message back to that web page that the author should consider adding a link there. Or, in a more practical sense, if you do this within a specific web site (using wikipedias search engine to find other related pages) then you could be asked if you want to add that link. But in the most practical sense, an extension for the browser, could simply record and report back to it's own web database, all the times people do that. And then, when a user of the extension is browsing a web page where people have searched and found data, that link would be added into the document automatically, based on the prior searches. The link suggestions could be given or sold back to the source web site, helping the authors improve content by providing better explanations of the text in question, or providing links to other pages on their own site, or just adding the link as originally suggested. If the system became popular enough, the aggregate data could be made available automatically to users of the extension. e.g. if many people search for the meaning of the same text on the same site, and often pick the same destination, then when any user of the extension goes to that site, a link is added from that text to that destination automatically.
