Google AMP – New Way to Get Found On Mobile Searches

In the Wide world of Web browsing, one of the important pressure points is page loading time. This factor is very critical both from a user perspective as well as from a business point of view as it can make the difference between a deal made or a sale lost. This takes on more significance in the case of smartphones, as they are now the most common device used for browsing and shopping all over the world.

Page loading time and MCommerce

According to Mashables, Mobile shopping accounted for around $1 Trillion of more than $2.5 Trillion Online business transactions last year. Now, this is a very huge number, and a lot of it has got to do with the speed of page loading and browsing. It is estimated that one in four people abandon their browsing or shopping if a web page takes anything more than 4 seconds to load. This might not seem much, but with the delay of every other second, Amazon loses more than $1.6 Billion in sales each year. This is where Google’s AMP changes the game.

What exactly is Google AMP?

AMP aka Accelerated Mobile Pages is a smart Open Source solution by Google to make web pages load at lightning speeds. AMPS are an essentially stripped-down version of HTML that is lighter and loads faster. Web pages built using the AMP framework can load 15-85 % rapidly than the ones built on a non-AMP framework, all the while utilising lesser than ten times data. The AMP framework achieves all this thanks to its constituents of AMP HTML, AMP JavaScript, which basically are lighter versions of HTML and JavaScript and AMP CDN (Content Delivery Network) which will store a cached copy of the AMP enabled Web pages in the Google server to ensure a quick retrieval and thereby loading.
