Deep linking for better user interaction and engagement
Mobile deep linking is equivalent to specific URLs on the internet for the mobile apps via URIs (uniform resource identifiers). Just imagine directly opening friends’ profile page on your Android app for FB or opening a product page on Amazon app. As most of our important online activities are getting appified the proliferation of mobile deep linking is quite natural (Taken from: http://adiquity.com/mobile-deep-linking-a-necessity-for-mobile-marketers/)
Deep linking the content within your app is one sure shot way for better user interaction, enagagment and app discoverability. In this talk I wish to cover the various ways for enabling deep links within Android apps (Android deep links, facebook app links, app urls, deferred deep links etc..), deep linking strategy and how this can improve your app score for better user engagement.
