Does Confluence keep track of where a wiki page is used?

What do you mean by "used"?

You can use the Confluence Page Information to see what outgoing links and incoming referers there are –

I mean it in the industry-standard usage of "where used."  In document management, any given document will have notations of where it is used... that is, the document might be relevant to and referenced from multiple other documents.  For example, if we take Google's Panoramio application that has built-in metadata for each of the millions of photographs mapped to specific locations, and view that metadata, we can bring up a list of what other websites link to that photo – such as, Googlemaps, National Geographic, a National Parks website, a chamber of commerce website... will all be listed if they have a link to that photo.  So the question is, does a given Confluence wiki page "know" where it is referenced (linked) from other wiki pages? 

The reason I'm asking is that we have thousands of documents in hundreds of repositories.  Sometimes those repositories need to be reconfigured or moved.  Is there a mechanism in Confluence that tracks the move?

Ah, you mean "where it has been referred to", not "where used" (because used might mean read by a human, edited, linked from, linked to, read by another system, and so-on).

I'd mark Steven's answer right in that case.
