How a Search Engine May Assign Relevance from One Page Connected to Another

One page on your site doesn't have an address on it, but another page on your site does, and the two pages are connected within a certain number of clicks, and are determined to be relevant based on how they are connected, that first page might be "assigned" that location by Google and be "relevant" for that location in search results.

This assignment of relevancy might also work for terms and phrases beyond geography as well. Your home page doesn't have the word "pho" on it, but another page on your site connected to it within a certain number of clicks does. Google might assign your home page to be relevant for "pho," so that a searcher looking for a [pho restaurant] might see your home page in search results.
How Google might assign relevance from one page to another for a geographic location, or even another term or phrase, even if that location or phrase doesn't appear on the other page.
