“Hey you guys, it’s Landon from Obu Interactive.
I’m coming to you today to about AMP, stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages, it’s a new feature out from Google to be built into their Google Analytic platform. It affects all websites across the web and it definitely something that gonna work with WordPress websites.
Now, if you are a lawyer you most likely have a website or a blog that is WordPress enabled, so you need to pay attention to this. Here’s what’s going to happen. Google did some research and learned that if, on a mobile phone, someone has to wait about 10 seconds to get a website to load- which doesn’t really seem really long, but it’s too long in this day and age- people bounce. Their not going to stay on the website, and they may not even use Google if they are seeking out a service or more information on what they are looking for.
So, Google’s mission is to deliver the most timely, relevant, search results and in doing so they want to strip down websites, make them faster to load, easier to use, so their users can get to the information they need.
Now, some people are wondering why would Google would go ahead and do this? Well the answer could be it could encourage more people to use paid search results, craft their pages a little bit better, and that way generate more advertising revenue for it. There has been some backlash in the community some people feel that it’s just going to be a phase, while other people are looking at what people can do to make their websites faster and faster- compressing images, making their coding cleaner, things of this kind of nature.
