AMP Pages Dominating Google Results

Publishers who use Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) are reportedly experiencing higher placement on Google's mobile search results.

According to the recently released Ranking Factors for the Media Industry study from Searchmetrics, nearly 78 percent of the corresponding page one results on mobile were found to be AMP-enabled, positioned either in the standard organic search results or in the 'Top stories' news boxes and carousels in mobile results.

"With so many people now consuming news and information round the clock on mobile devices, it's becoming more and more important for media sites to ensure an easy online experience, allowing readers to click and scroll through content quickly," Tober said. "That's why AMP - which displays a stripped-down, faster-loading version of web pages - was introduced and is now a growing presence in news and topical searches on mobile."
