Converting to Google’s new AMP could make your mobile content blazing fast. But … should you?
This episode is brought to you by StudioPress Sites.
On Monday, Demian Farnworth explained what the AMP (that stands for “Accelerated Mobile Page”) framework does for mobile content, and why Google is pushing for it.
Today, I talk about whether or not content publishers should dive into AMP … and what to consider when we’re making that decision.
In this 21-minute episode, I talk about:
- What mean teenagers can teach you about search engine optimization
- How I decide when to try out an SEO tactic — and when not to
- The incredibly important site functionality that AMP disables
- What AMP is really intended to protect (and why that might not apply to you)
