What is AMP and How Does it Work?

How to Implement AMP

Pros of Google AMP

  • Search Engine Optimization: AMP boosts your site’s speed. Users like sites that load faster which means more traffic and a higher rank on search engine results pages (SERPs).
  • Excellent user experience: WordPress AMP allows you to create mobile-friendly pages in a matter of seconds. And, these pages are extremely user-friendly as well.
  • Improved server performance: AMP can reduce the bandwidth usage for images by 50% without hampering the image quality to reduce the load on your server.
  • Low bounce rate: Mobile users will no longer leave your homepage without performing any action.
  • Optimized data consumption: Implementing AMP allows users to install the website on their home screen without the need to visit an app store.

Cons of Google AMP

  • Only cached page displayed: Google AMP serves your site’s cached page so your users do not always have access to the latest version of your page.
  • Limited elements: Since AMP strips down many elements, it removes many high-definition graphics, animations, and other elements that require CSS and Javascript.
