An experiment with AMP

An experiment with AMP

As we wrote on SEO4Escorts we have decided to run a test using Google’s AMP (accelerated mobile pages) a subset of HTML designed to load quickly on smart phones.

An experiment with AMP

The article linked here goes into the pro’s and cons of this but I thought I would log here the progress.

Amp is not to replace sites but to offer a very fast alternative loading on phones with perhaps slower internet connections, and they only show up in mobile phone searches, so as an experiment... 

Yesterday (Feb 23rd) I wrote a version of the front page of this site, stripped down but with the key information in compliant AMP format. I tested the code, validated it as correct and made it findable by Google at about 6pm last night. 

This morning, Feb 24th it appeared in mobile search results. I checked this at about 7am, so by any measurment that’s pretty quick. Now whether this will translate into improved ranking remains to be seen, I plan to expand this experiment to other pages overthe coming days and I will report findings here.

As the screenshot shows, Google places a lighting bolt icon by AMP pages, signifying they are AMP sites and this visual signal may encourage clicking, again we will see.
