I have a question about backlinks.
I want to use them for research purposes on a very large number of notes.
I have written a BASH-script to “isolate” searchterms.
I simply searches for all the occurences of the search terms in all the files of the vaults and puts them between
Also an .md files is generated with the name of the search term and a list of all the notes where the searchterm appears in
When using the Graphs - which are amazing by the way - you can see the clusters forming around the search terms and the ‘connections’ between the clusters.
What I tend to see is that the same Graphs can be generated when creating the .md files with list of notes where the term appears and not create the backlink (
[]reference) in the file where the term appears.
I was wondering:
What would be the added value of putting the backlink reference in the notes where the search term appears?
Or do I oversee something essential that could be of any use later?
