Five Ways Deep Links Help SEO
Worried that your website's inbound deep links—links to site pages other than your homepage or other top-level pages—are distracting visitors from your main advertising or branding page? Or that visitors following these links don't always realize they are on your site (as opposed to the site that linked to you)?
Not to fear, says Larry Kim. In a recent MarketingProfs article, he explains how deep links can actually help your site SEO, as they:

Increase your site's traffic. The higher your site appears in the SERPs, the more people will learn about it and visit it, Kim says.
