Hello friends, in this article I am going to share all the important things about Accelerated mobile Pages. So, read the article till end before switching to AMP pages.
What is an Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) in WordPress
AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) project was announced by Google on October, 2015 in order to improve users experience on mobile phones.
Loading time of your web page matters for your visitors, so AMP is designed to make really fast mobile pages.
It is basically a HTML page designed to be lightweight and fast loading.
If you check your page speed, then you notice that performance of your desktop is always better than mobile. And now a days mobile users are increasing as compare to desktop users. That’s the reason why AMP project is launched. (To improve your mobile page speed)
What makes it so fast ?
- Limited HTML tags
- Lazy loading
- Heavily Cached
How this works ?
It is basically designed for mobile devices but you can also see the amp version in desktop by putting /amp in the last of the url.
Plugins for Accelerated Mobile Pages
AMP for WP (Recommended), Because it has more features than any other AMP plugins. It automatically adds AMP functionality to your WordPress website. In the settings, it also has the option to force redirect AMP pages of your website to mobile devices.
All are limited then how to place ads ?
Don’t worry, Google Adsense already launched a feature in their ads called Auto Ads for AMP.
During the announcement of AMP(Accelerated Mobile Pages) Project, Google also said that it improves your SEO rankings. Personally I never did this experiment yet, but if I do, I will let you know.
