    Help! Weird icon.


    I had been advised to install an AMP plugin. I uninstalled and deleted it last night. It was on my site maybe 24 hours.

    Now when you search “Raleigh newborn photographer” from your Mobile device (phone) there is a lightening bolt symbol by my name. And it doesn’t direct you to my correct site when you click on it. It’s hard to explain.

    I have uninstalled the plugin - I believe it was related to the problem! I just want it to go away and link you to my real page not a generic page
    Anyone have any idea?!?! Thank you.

    Welcome to the world of AMP. Amp pages are supposed to be trimmed down html pages for serving up on a mobile device, ie a telephone. They are fast, hence the lightning bold symbol.

    You have AMP pages possibly still on your server, just a guess.

    If you have your regular site, and you have created AMP pages then Google will show these over regular pages by default on a mobile device. As in your case, it is not what you want. Go thru your site, removing any AMP pages you do not want. Then sit back and wait, Google will eventually remove them from their index and quit serving them up. Sorry but time is the only cure once you have removed the pages.
