    Lightbulb Optimizing website for AMP

    Knowing how important mobile factors are getting for ranking on the SERPs, I recently got into learning about AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) and started to implement onto my website. Actually two of my websites now have AMP on them.

    I'm curious, what specific plugins or tools are you guys using to implement AMP onto your websites?

    Currently I am using:

    • AMP
    • AMP for WP
    • Glue for Yoast SEO & AMP

    In conjunction with each other and it seems to work quite well.

    I am wondering if anyone else has found a better complement of plugins / systems that works better or just as good.

    Instead of making an entirely new website that is preformatted for AMP, Id recommend using an AMP plugin if you are using WordPress website with all the mobile performance that it needs. You can try following plugins for AMP:

    • All in One SEO Pack
    • Better AMP WordPress Complete AMP
    • AdSense Plugin WP QUADS

    I don't use AMP pages unless it's a news type of site. I prefer RWD, and why you might ask.

    Amp sites generally follow this design....
    1. You basically have two websites to manage and take care of.
    2. Each AMP page should reference the non-amp page to let Google know there is a desktop version of the page.
    3. Each desktop page needs to reference the AMP page to let Google know there is a amp version of the page.
    4. Amp pages have different html tags and fewer of them.

    Responsive Web Design sites
    1. You have only one website and it scales to fit the view port of the device used, ie a phone, tablet or desktop screen
    2. A whole lot less work, you don't have two sites to manage. You also have full use of all html 5 tags.
    3. Less code bloat because you don't need the references to amp pages and regular pages.

    Google prefers RWD over AMP

    Almost, if not all, WordPress themes today to my knowledge are RWD themes
