A change in perception
Here are some of the more important questions and their answers we heard at the conference:
“Hey, did anyone mention me about the AMP, do you need it?”
“Of course, this is the only way to qualify for Google’s carousel, you better not miss this extra traffic.”
“Well, should I change my entire site then?”
“No, it’s just like RSS, just generate those on top of your normal site and click them. ”
The web – endless possibilities
One of the main reasons for the creation of AMP is to restore the online glory to its former glory and increase the speed of web pages and their user-friendliness.
It takes 19 seconds. load on one page per 3G network, and with a 1% delay, a total of 7 conversions are lost.
1MB data can cost 5% of the monthly installment 0.8MB is the average amount of advertising on a mobile device.
To index a page as AMP, it must be described as canonical
<link rel=”amphtml” href=”https://www….com/page.amp.html“>
AMP improves the visualization of both the desktop page and the mobile page. This is achieved through the use of several pre-generated script and style libraries specifically tailored to look good, functional and comfortable and responsive, containing everything you need to quickly and easily visualize your pages.
Google says, “Focus on the user and everything else will come from itself.”

Some basic facts about AMR:
In fact, AMP doesn’t allow JS at all, except for its own scripts. HTML is processed seamlessly, converting to the required format when submitting the page. As for CSS, it should be borne in mind that in addition to the standard one given to us by the project, all CSS created by us personally must be described in a custom css tag in the header of the page. Local style elements are not allowed.
