In our previous article, we explained the importance of Accelerated Mobile Pages for Search Engine Optimization for news sites, as well as web stores. But what exactly is AMP and how can you get started?
As a reminder, Google will use AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) to help mobile users surf the Internet faster. When a search is performed using a mobile device, you will now see (above the search results) a carrousel that shows only AMP pages, which are optimised for fast loading. Therefore, it is of paramount importance that you get your web store in that carrousel.
You should keep in mind that AMP cannot make your web store, with all its products, faster. For this, you need to use tools such as Varnish, which is provided with Combell’s Performance Hosting. However, AMP will make sure that Google picks your website faster, via the blog in which you provide news about your products, your business sector, etc. By using AMP, your website will be included in the new AMP carrousel and will load faster.
AMP is actually a framework used to create mobile web pages. AMP consists of three key elements:
These elements are used to load all the content “above the fold” right away. The content “below the fold”, which users do not immediately get to see on their device’s first screen, follows later. AMP also knows how big images and other rich content (like carrousels) are before they are fully loaded. The empty space is, so to speak, “reserved” and filled later on. No more page jumps while the content is loading; users can start reading immediately.
Loading faster also means reading faster: users get to see more content on your website – a win-win situation, for both users and your web store.
Do you use a content management system such as Drupal or WordPress for your website? In that case, you can very easily benefit from this boost for your page.

One of AMP’s goals is to find the right balance between ads, which are vital for advertisers, and user-friendliness. After all, Internet users are not so crazy about ads. Ads in AMP pages will be handled in collaboration with several advertising networks. That being so, Google warned that ads should not be too intrusive. Advertisers can view examples of acceptable ads on this GitHub page.
As for publishers who use paywalls and subscriptions, they should read this information about the AMP Access extension.
Yes! And better yet, analytical trackers, which often slow down the loading times of regular websites, are even limited to the minimum necessary. The Amp-Pixel element is a simple tag that allows you to monitor your page views, and the Amp-Analytics extended component allows for further analytics via Google Analytics.

Feel free to see what our colleagues have to say: Practical ECommerce (about SEO for e-commerce via AMP), TechCrunch (about AMP pages in search results and WordPress support for AMP), WebProNews (about AMP and Drupal 8), SearchEngineLand (how to get started with AMP). And let us not forget the AMP project itself and the AMP HTML blog.
