Leave "pheromone trails" on research articles

What if there was a way to leave a "trail" (like ants) whenever researchers jump from one research article to another and find the connection very interesting. As more researchers walk the same path, the "pheromone" along that trail becomes stronger. This would provide a nice way of linking interesting research articles together, highlighting interesting patterns in the network of related research papers.
