The basic idea of this work is to assume the user of the search engine is willing to do some navigation to find what he is looking for.
The question then becomes not what is the most relevant document but where should we "drop off" the user, for him to be most likely to find what he is looking for. Cool.
Further, they highlight the paths that could lead the user to interesting pages.
