Linking notes - new to established or established to new?
I was integrating a note into my Zettelkasten this morning and my usual workflow is to highlight key terms or phrases and then I use a Keyboard Maestro macro that puts the highlighted text in the OmniBar and searches the entire Zettelkasten for matches. I then cruise the Note List looking for relevant notes to link to the note I'm working with.
I wonder if I should be putting the link of the original note on the note I discover during this search or if I should put the link for the note I discover that already exists in my Zettelkasten into the new, current note?
I know that the connection is easily discovered via the 'backlink' functionality of The Archive but I read somewhere that links from new notes are placed on existing notes.
Maybe this is mote, knit-picky, in the weeds. So far I've just been randomly mixing it up. Sometimes the link is put on the new note and sometimes on the established older note. Rarely both.
What do you do? Where do you add your links? Does this matter?
