Google AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) Launching

Those of you that follow Google closely will know that Google’s AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) is about to launch. No specific date was provided, but it’s due to launch in February 2016.

What is Googles AMP? It’s a cut down version of HTML devised to load pages much faster on a mobile network.

Who’s it for? Anyone targeting a mobile audience, but at the outset, Google has been working with news publishers to show news content on mobiles.

If you want to start building AMP pages to be ready you’ll need to start off by reading up about AMP from the AMP project site.

There’s a great accelerated mobile pages (AMP) tutorial here.
