  3. 3. What is AMP?  Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is an open source initiative between publishers and technology to improve the mobile content ecosystems for publishers, consumer platforms, creators & users. AMP aims to dramatically improve the performance of the mobile web.  The project relies on AMP HTML, a new open framework built entirely out of existing web technologies, which allows websites to build light-weight webpages.  AMP is about speed, performance & enhanced distribution across all apps & platforms  By making this an open source, people can share & contribute their ideas to make mobile web fast.  Results in more revenue via ads & subscriptions.

  4. 4. How AMP works on Mobile Devices 1) WWW- Regular Desktop Version. Create an AMP version of it called ”amphtml”. 2) Google will also host it on, a Google cached version. 3) Any cached version would contain a rel=“canonical” to original. 4) When you actually see these things showing up in Google search results, they come from Google’s cache(gstatic)
  5. 5. What Are the Components of AMP?  AMP consists of three different parts  AMP HTML - AMP HTML is HTML with some restrictions for reliable performance and some extensions for building rich content beyond basic HTML..  AMP JS - The AMP JS library ensures the fast rendering of AMP HTML pages.  Google AMP Cache - The Google AMP Cache (optionally) delivers the AMP HTML page An example of a AMP script <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width,minimum-scale=1,initial-scale=1"> <style amp-boilerplate>body{-webkit-animation:-amp-start 8s steps(1,end) 0s 1 normal both;-moz- animation:-amp-start 8s
  6. 6. How To Publish AMP Pages?  HTML Tags - Most HTML tags can be used directly in AMP HTML, but certain tags, such as the <img> tag, are replaced with equivalent or slightly enhanced custom AMP  CSS- Common CSS properties can be used  Preview & Validate Preview & Validate the AMP pages  Linking - Link both your AMP & Non AMP version of the pages.  Publish - Once pages are tested locally and fixed all validation errors, your first AMP page is ready to publish
  7. 7.

Some of the 3rd party content for AMP includes o Tweet o Instagram o Display Facebook posts or Video o Youtube videos o Display an ad - From Doubleclick, Adtech, A9 & others o iframes & Media o Analytics
  8. 8. Why AMP was Made Open Source?  On October 7th, 2015, the AMP Project announced the release of the initial technical specification on GitHub.  Making the project open source enables people to share and contribute their ideas/Codes  The initial companies involved in this early preview of the project want to make the mobile web work better for all – platform, technologies & publishers.  Google has stated that it will provide a cache that can be used by anyone at no cost, and all AMPs will be cached by Google’s cache.  By using the AMP format, content producers are making the content in AMP files available to be crawled, indexed, displayed & cached by third parties.  Under this type of framework, publishers continue to control their content, but platforms can easily cache or mirror the content for optimal delivery speed to users.

  11. 11. AMP & SEO  AMP pages does not have a lot of stuff for a more complex user experience. Everything is stripped-down. (Streamlined CSS, No JS & others)  Basically when you integrate AMP to standardize your mobile responsive pages, you are putting speed and readability as top priority over anything else.  AMP can't be applied to the entire content of the site. Doesn't make sense to convert Services or product landing pages into AMP. That might affect conversions negatively. It would be stripped down of its first- impressions.  Rather, you can transition your client’s blog section or news and updates section into AMP.  The sites that will benefit the most from AMP are publishing sites. Sites that produce content.  AMP is for publishers to be able to load their sites quickly on mobile since mobile responsive could be clunky.  It’s best to optimize the experience of mobile browsing for all users by standardizing a mobile version of your publishing site with AMP. This is what Google wants!!  AMP will only appear on general terms that will have fewer paid search advertisers on them.  Google will use click behavior to determine when AMP content is most relevant for users and recalibrate its algorithm accordingly.
