Why AMP:

AMP helps the users to enter in the web page quickly. But how it can assist the mobile users? Generally, it doesn’t load the full website from the search engine; it opens the page into the browsers without loading all the files or web page. For this reason, it helps the users to take necessary information easily.

If you see Facebook or Apple, you will realize the matter easily. It opens any page or URL from their browser. For this reason, the users are not leaving them as well as it opens so fastly, though the technology is not free from them. You have to become their premium member to use it. On the other hand, Google has made it totally free, and you can use it in your website to do the same work in the search engine, and it’s so easy.

How AMP works?

AMP collaborates with the combination of AMP HTML, AMP JS, and AMP web cache. Generally, AMP creates the web pages for mobile friendly. As most of the website uses a lot of additional scripts, JavaScript or third party apps. For this reason, it takes the time to load, and in the mobile, it takes more time.

With this in mind, it will create the website into the mobile friendly web page. In reality, it converts the entire website into mobile view without cache scripts. For this reason, it opens the webpage very easily. It helps the users to load the web page fastly. They get their necessary information without spending more time. With this in mind, Google is giving priority to this technology, and already Google is trying to rank better AMP enabled pages.

Benefits of AMP:

Why Google or other search engines are giving more priority for ranking AMP web page? There have some issues which count the search engine as ranking factors. For example,

  • Google take loading time as one of the ranking factors in the SERP. On the other hand, 65% of users are from Mobile, and they will be able to load the website within seconds for using AMP. With this in mind, Google is providing more value for AMP enabled webpage.
  • Google will give more attention for the mobile users day by day, and then you will not get any chances to rank your web page without AMP. For this reason, it will be good to implement it today.
  • As mobile users don’t wait more than 5 seconds for loading of a web page, so AMP can help you to increase the bounce rate. As visitors will be able to load your website fastly by using AMP. 
  • Google is showing the AMP enabled page in the Google News carousel. That means, you are getting extra attention from the search engine and it’ll definitely attract the visitors as a brand and reliable website.
