A Deep link is basically a link (hyperlink) that is pointed to a web page or post of another website/blog, rather than to the homepage itself.

It has been shown that difficulties getting from a homepage to a specific product page is responsible for over a quarter of failures in getting a visitor to purchase a product. By deep linking to a specific product, an Affiliate is able to largely eliminate the problems associated with navigating a Merchant's website. By taking the visitor directly to the information that they desire, you greatly increase the chances of converting that visitor into a sale. If you only link to the homepage of the Merchant then you are forcing that visitor to takes several more steps to find the product that they want. It is far better to make it easy for the visitor and send them directly to the product page.

Default deep

A hyperlink either on a Web page or in the results of a search engine query to a page on a Web site other than the sites home page. Typically, a Web sites home page is the top page in the sites hierarchy, and any page other than that is considered "deep."
