  • What are your thoughts? Google is fighting Facebook back. Is anyone planning to try this out in some blog? Blogs that have added AMP haven't yet received their AMP icon in google search. But on the plus side, they have seen small improvements in google search.

    It’s been a few months since Google released the Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) pages into its search engine results. It’s open source and backed by WordPress and Google specifically for speeding up the mobile web rendering experience. However, I’m not yet sold on this.
