I think that you didn't know about Bacon number. I'm not sure about English Wikipedia but Polish article it's literly called Bacon number it's a number of Hops where you end at Kevin Bacon (just related words not related to Wikipedia)

I also suggest wathing Wikipedia Race video as part of Chrome Developer Summit 2020, where they have a game where person needs to find a page just by clicking a links on Wikipedia.

Thanks for the comment, I didn't know about Bacon number.

On the topic of finding number of hops between pages I found this site sixdegreesofwikipedia, where you can find the shortest path between two articles.
