Track session lineages
I think it would be cool if on the side panel it tracked through the words the user directly clicked through. So every time a word was entered in the search menu it would be a new 'session' and as the user clicked each word into sequentially more specific words, it could display a line chart on the back. This would be (1) simply interesting but also (2) give the user a way to backtrack when they started going down the wrong 'path' and revert back to a previous word.
If/how the system would handle going back i.e. a fork in the sidepanel graph with an expandable lineage or whatever. Either way, I think it would be cool
Thanks (as you can tell, I really like this site!)
Johan, thank you for very interesting suggestion!
Since we already track visited pages and user searches and consider this as an important part of user navigation, this might be a very useful feature. We will discuss the idea with the design team and hopefully they will create something really cool.

(by "on the back", I meant "on the side")
