Google AMP


Why AMP matters

Google AMP

#TechTalks@pagelizardSeamless, simplified publishingMobile first approachAn architectural framework built for speed15% - 85% speed increasesHosted caches through Google & othersAMP HTML part of the open webLaunched 7th OctoberContent, spec and files on GitHubOpen to all through open sourceSearch results will be affectedDemo http://insidesearch.blogspot.com/2015/10/accelerated-mobile-pages-in-search.htmlOverview

to improve the entire mobile content ecosystem for everyone

It is meant to simplify cumbersome HTML, CSS and JavaScript elements, resulting in a stripped down page that only includes the most vital content (text, images, videos, and of course, site ads).

Websites that opt into this framework benefit from speed improvements since the content templates share common elements and components, leading to a 15 to 85% performance improvement, according to Google.

Google cites a 29% drop off when mobile users reach a site/app thats either too slow or that doesnt provide the right information up front. And the AMP site quotes a 58% drop off for pages that take 10 seconds to load.

AMP will push down organic search, though paid for may be excluded from push down

Wheres it all heading...?

#TechTalks@pagelizardWest coast technology companies increasingly owning the channels through which content can be marketed

Publishers website content is what actually gets displayed. Is this the best of their output?

The acceleration in instant news means news organisations have to re-think how the write and display stories in their (print) editions.
