For over a year, the Firebase App Index, a database of the most popular mobile apps in the world, has been available free of charge in the Google Play Store.
The Firebase App Indexing API supports Google Device Indexes and makes personal content searchable on any device. Previously, app indexing had to upload content to Google’s servers and was obviously not suitable for user’s personal content. Now user and app data can be added directly to the index via the deep-linking SDK without the need for a Google server.
This is a great way for users to revisit the data they have stored in the app and give them a fresh look at their personal content.
If you have any questions, you can reach us on Twitter (@ FirebaseAppIndex) or in the comments below for more information.
Bring new and existing users to your app through billions of Google searches and use Firebase App Index’s new Google Analytics and Google Search Analytics to gain insight into growth channels. Users can share recommendation codes and their favorite content with their networks, which can increase the app’s reach and engagement.
The App Indexing API for Android offers autocomplete suggestions based on user actions that are logged into the app. When a user who has your app installed on their device clicks on a link, they go directly to their app instead of their already installed app, and when they click on the link, they can launch that app directly from the Firebase App Index.
Firebase App Indexing enables developers to retrieve their app data from the Google index into the Firebase database. Google’s servers can upload data through your app, such as the number of active users, the number of downloads, and other data.
URLs that match your app’s view, allowing you to automatically complete search criteria and direct users to the app’s content in search results.
The search for support for Android applications will be live in the next version of Firebase App Indexing, which will be released later this year. You will also need access to the Google Play Store and the Android App Store for your Android app.
Once you have an Android app, it consists of two main components: the app content and the search engine. As mentioned above, you can access the content of your app in the Google Play Store or the Android App Store for Android apps.
AdMob and App Indexing work together, and we use AdMob to monetize your application through the Google Play Store and the Android App Store for Android apps. Whether you use Admob to monetize your app or not, App Indexing and AdMob will work together to improve the effectiveness of your targeted ads and monetized apps in the search engine and App Store.
Depending on how your users use your app, there are various ways to log their actions and monetize them through app indexing.
The good news is that it’s getting easier to add relevant markups to your web content and index your app content and place it in mobile search results. However, implementing the ability to map web content explicitly to app content using on-page markup can provide a little more control and additional benefits. Your app is associated with your website and is updated to analyze and edit HTTP URLs that match the links on the website.
The App Indexing SDK has been integrated into iOS 9, and you can also use it on Android with Firebase 2.0 and iOS 8.1.
The App Indexing API allows you to comment on activity apps that support deep links, so you don’t have to worry about Googlebot having trouble accessing your content. By using rel – alternate – link elements on individual pages, referencing app URLs in XML sitemaps, and using schema.org markup, you can assign a web page to its corresponding app screen by using the rel / alternate link element on each page. Using the app indexing API is definitely worth it: apps that use the API get a ranking boost, and your intention filters are much more intuitive than in the previous version of Firebase.
This allows you to track search traffic through deep links and track which websites have the most active deep link activity on their app screens.
