Is there a way to forward the referrer from my Website to my Branch Link?

For example, say someone got to my Landing Page from a Blog. Then they tap a button on my homepage to Download the App. Is there a way to forward that Blog through to the branch link as a parameter? Using google analytics as well if that helps.

Hi – thanks for posting the question.

To do this, you will need to write some custom logic at your end. Basically, write a piece of javascript code that reads the referrer information on the page and attaches that as a deep link data to the Branch link. If you are using a Branch Journeys banner, you can use the the method as documented here: https://dev.branch.io/marketing-channels/journeys/guide/#deep-linking-from-the-banner-or-interstitial

If it is a static Branch link, simple append the referrer information as a query parameter. Let me know if you have more questions.
