What are the two types of deep links?

The two types of deep links are:

Standard Deep Links: These are deep links that take users directly to a specific page or content within an app. For example, a standard deep link could take a user to a specific product page within an e-commerce app.

Deferred Deep Links: These are deep links that not only take users to a specific page within an app but also carry additional information about the user or the context of the link. This information can be used to personalize the user experience within the app. For example, a deferred deep link could take a user to a specific product page within an e-commerce app and also provide information about a promotion that the user is eligible for. Deferred deep links are typically used in marketing campaigns to deliver personalized experiences to users.

How do you create a deep link in HTML?

You can create a deep link in HTML by adding an anchor tag with a specific target location. Here’s an example:

<a href=”https://example.com/page#section”>Click here to go to the section</a>

In this example, “https://example.com/page” is the URL of the webpage, and “#section” is the ID of the section you want to link to. To create a deep link, you simply add a “#section” to the end of the URL in the “href” attribute of the anchor tag.
