Now is the time for your mobile website to embrace the Google AMP format
Google has recently unveiled Google Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP), which it now considers its flagship format for mobile websites. Here at Piranha Designs, we would urge you to move your company's mobile site to Google AMP.
Here are several reasons why making this move can make an appreciably big difference to your company's fortunes.
An introduction to Google AMP
Google AMP is a standard of design and coding that, when employed for websites, can substantially boost the speed at which their content loads for user viewing. Not only is Google AMP lighter than its predecessors, but it also makes use of caching for a faster and more fluid experience when the user repeatedly clicks through to different pages of a mobile site.
Nonetheless, Google has certainly put the cat among the SEO pigeons, as the search giant has revealed that when it crawls a site, the basic index it now focuses on is the mobile index. This means that if you have long followed a particular SEO strategy for your company's mobile site, you might want to rethink it in light of Google's changes.
The biggest implications for your company
With Google now declaring AMP its best format for mobile sites, more and more businesses could opt to integrate it into their sites and so enjoy the speed benefits. This could make your own site's loading speeds an even greater influence on its success – after all, you don't want to fall behind the competition because their AMP-based sites load noticeably quicker than yours.
