The Next Big Thing: AMP Mobile Searches
Google now supports what’s called Accelerated Mobile Pages. It’s for your website and the experience that users are having. As its name implies, AMP enables great features for optimizing the speed of browsing. This is browsing on mobile devices to be exact.
Just imagine your site or another loading up to 85 percent faster on mobile. This is in comparison to a traditional site that doesn’t have AMP HTML features. The additional feature is for the user. In the end, there is only a bit more work on the developer’s end, but the efforts will be worth it for news articles.
Accelerated Mobile Pages was launched in 2015. You’re looking for a combination. One that pleases the user and a component that impresses the search engines with speed. The AMP HTML input will enable you to satisfy both. It happens with ease. The result is better optimization and front page relevancy. This could be the way of the future.
A Quick, Technical Overview
But the input of AMP isn’t for the faint in heart. There are three parts that it’s made of. They are: AMP JS, AMP CDN and AMP HTML.
– The AMP HTML is nothing but an HTML subtype. The task won’t be difficult for those competent with HTML already. The usual HTML tags are left out or replaced when using AMP HTML. You do have to learn the new commands of AMP HTML though.
– The AMP CDN or Accelerated Mobile Pages Content Delivery Network enables an AMP site to be automatically optimized and will even cache it for you.
Are AMP The Future for Mobile SEO
The ability to load mobile pages is in demand within most tech companies as we know it. There are similar attempts as seen through Apple News and Instant Articles by Facebook. WordPress has also jumped into the fray by offering an AMP plugin. The demand for faster mobile features is apparent and growing each day.
This feature is the future of mobile HTML, but Google limits where it’s currently active for searches made through their engine. The AMP HTML settings are only active when news enquiries are made in searches as of now.
How They Work
You still own the rights to your published material, but search engines will better cache it. This makes it a step easier to increase the speed at which your media is uploaded and found in searches. It’s achieved through HTML subsets and caches in a cloud. That way, time is reduced when finding media through mobile devices.
Find your way now, and start considering AMP as an option.
