I'm as new as you are to this for sure.
So please bear with me if this isn't what your looking for.
When you click on a product, in the lower right hand corner it lists all the key words associated with that node.
So you'd have "Term1 - Term 2 - Term 3"
Clicking on any of those terms will list each item that shares that term.
This is the way it works on my site.
Is this somewhat associated to what you are looking for?
