Deep link simple like url which is open your app with the relevant product or relevant information page in your mobile application.

Normally google not crol your app content if you have enabled deep linking google can reach to you through links. 

Deep links allow the user to be taken directly to app content in the following interactions:

 

  • Website to App
  • App to App
  • Social Media to App
  • Search Result to App (using app indexing)
  • Mobile Phone Search to App (for example,
  • Apple Spotlight Search)
  • Ad to App
  • E-mail to App
  • SMS to App

To use deep link you have to set url with some parameters like product id or any unique key which is indicated user to show relevant information.

  • No need to go through navigation.
  • User friendly
  • No frustrated go through
