The AMP bandwagon is creating a paradigm shift and it is about time you joined the party. Bid farewell to clunky websites and replace the slow, non-optimized pages with Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP).
Let’s face it. Websites are no longer about showcasing information alone, they are a means to deliver your customers with phenomenal user experience to achieve a higher ranking on SERPs.
What enhances a user’s experience online? Fast loading websites! And AMP is the best way to get started.
Additionally, JS, HTML, cache libraries and some other extensions can help you deliver feature-rich content like infographics, videos, PDFs and more in a quick manner.
Faster pages improve a website’s usability to a great extent and motivate users to spend more time on the website and engage with the content being delivered. As a result, the bounce rate drops rapidly and your website’s ranking improves.
However, many marketers are still not sure about implementing AMP to their website. They often question if the effort is going to be worth it.
