(Santa Clara, CA: August 8, 2016) - Is your website AMP ready? Google announced on August 3rd, 2016 that AMP pages - https://www.ampproject.org/ - are available beyond the news carousel and in main search engine results pages. AMP (Accelerated Mobile Page) is Google's new format for rendering websites and content on mobile phones for faster speeds and download times for user enhanced experience.
What is AMP?
Google is getting 60% of their queries from Mobile devices and the speed of websites continues to be a big concern for mobile users. AMP websites renders15% to 85% faster than the standard HTML format, leading to rich consumer experience and hence better engagement and conversion. Studies have shown that a one second delay in page response results in 7% less conversions.
Google had initially released the AMP format for news and media websites and just made the AMP format available on a demo site to enable developers for all websites to do further testing to create a lightning fast mobile user experience. You can view Google's blog post on AMP here. Please refer to our previous blog post for additional information.
