Google’s Accelerated Mobile Pages are live now

Google has pushed Accelerated Mobile Pages live today. In October 2015, Google introduced Accelerated Mobile Pages Project (AMP results), for a faster mobile web experience.

AMP is an open source platform initiated by Google that focuses on faster loading pages for mobile devices.

So now if you search something in google, you should notice small card with publisher’s logo and name, story headline, image, time it was published, and a green thunderbolt icon followed by ‘AMP’ in carousel format.

Google forum has a separate discussion point to discuss AMP related issues, as reported by John Mueller.

You can also check the option for Accelerated Mobile Pages in Search console (Webmaster). It will list all the pages on your site that are AMP compatible.

Google has been organizing Hangout sessions to discuss AMP project. Here are some hangouts that might be helpful for you.

“Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is a global, industry-wide initiative, with publishers large and small all focused on the same goal: a better, faster mobile web. The project launched just five months ago, but from the level of interest, we know that many people have questions to help get them up to speed.” Google says on the AMP blog.
