AMP for WordPress Webinar Recording

Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is fundamentally changing the way in which site owners deliver experiences on mobile and the landscape of mobile SEO. The AMP for WordPress plugin adds support for the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), which is an open source initiative that aims to provide mobile-optimized content that can load instantly everywhere. With the plugin active, all posts on your site will have dynamically generated AMP-compatible versions, accessible by appending /amp/ to the end your post URLs.

For example, if your post URL is:
https://affiliate-marketing-biz.com/refer-a-friend-and-get-free-stuff-top-referral-programs

The  AMP version is at:
https://affiliate-marketing-biz.com/refer-a-friend-and-get-free-stuff-top-referral-programs/amp

This controversial new approach to delivering better mobile experiences has developers scrambling to understand the limitations and opportunities of AMP.

So what’s the difference between AMP, responsive themes and WordPress mobile themes?

Google likes sites that use AMP and it’s been said to favor them in mobile rankings. Web sites that use AMP are marked in Google mobile searches like in the photo below.

I have just activated my site for AMP about one month ago and the plugin that I am using is AMP for WP. There are many things in the settings that I don’t know how to tweak and I was told that everything would be automatic.

I have seen a page or two from my site that shows up as AMP, but I am wondering if this feature can boost page ranking. Also, are they only for posts and never for pages?

Thanks for your guidance.

    They say it helps boost mobile rankings in google, there isn’t a setting for that. They say on the Webinar it dosn’t work on pages, but I guess The AMP for WordPress plugin has been updated since then. Here’s an example page using Accelerated Mobile Pages. https://affiliate-marketing-biz.com/about/amp

    Hope that helps,

Hello

I haven’t tried AMP for WordPress yet but based on your article, it might just be nice to give it
a try. Your article has been filled with information regarding the different advantages that this plugin
could offer to us and I think that this would make work easier. The samples that you have showed are helpful
as well as these could definitely stand as a guide in using the plugin for the first time.

Thank you
