Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) is out and has been speculated to have two benefits for SEO. One is it will have a “Fast” label designation on search engine results pages, and the other is that it will be a ranking factor. As to how much of a factor, that is yet to be seen. I’ll take you through what AMP is and how you can use it to benefit your site’s mobile visitors.

Accelerated Mobile Pages is an open-source coding standard for publishers.

If we’re going to be honest with ourselves, most of the elements of a desktop website is unnecessary for a mobile site.
