What is Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) and how can I create it for my website?

Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is an open source project that was originally initiated by Google to speed up the loading times of websites on mobile devices. The aim of AMP is to create faster loading websites by simplifying the HTML code and limiting the execution of JavaScript. AMP pages are often displayed preferentially in mobile search results, which can be particularly interesting for website operators.

To create AMP for your website, you can follow these steps:


  • Understanding basic AMP HTML: Learn the basics of AMP HTML, a simplified version of HTML that uses specific tags and conventions to ensure fast loading.

  • Use AMP components: AMP offers a number of custom components, such as AMP-Carousel or AMP-Form, which are specifically optimized for mobile performance.

  • Perform AMP validation: After you have created your AMP page, you should check it with the AMP Validator to make sure it complies with AMP standards.

  • Hosting and indexing: Host your AMP pages on your server and ensure that they can be indexed by search engines.

  • Monitoring and analytics: Monitor the performance of your AMP pages with tools like Google Analytics to understand how visitors are interacting with your site.

  • Integration into existing websites: If you already have a website, consider how AMP pages can be integrated into your existing website structure, e.g. for articles, blog posts or product pages.


For detailed instructions and specific code examples, it is recommended to consult the official AMP documentation and relevant web development resources. There you will find more detailed information and step-by-step instructions.



Keep in mind that AMP is not suitable for every type of website. It is particularly useful for websites that are content-focused, such as news sites or blogs. For complex web applications or websites with specific functional requirements, AMP may be less suitable.
