Hi, working on sitespeed today.

Been looking at amp training on here but some of it is pretty old.

What is the latest on this topic? Should we be doing it?

I have these two plugins. Which one is best? If any? Thanks.

1. Accelerated Mobile Pages

2. Schema & Structured Data for WP & AMP

Hi Catherine, I ran into a lot of problems with the AMP plugin and did not see and significant mobile speed changes.
If you decide to use I would advise you to take a look at the tutorial.

Though Accelerated Mobile Pages Project supports ads, the potential to bring in revenue is severely limited. And it is not a piece of cake to implement ads on AMP-run pages as well.

Cons Of Using Google AMP
1. Stripped Down Version of Content
2. Fewer Branding Elements
3. May Strip Some Ads from Content
4. Analytics Complications
5. Different Display of Site Between Desktop and Mobile

I eventually deleted the plugin after receiving several error messages in Google analytics.

Best wishes,
Michael

I tried it and it looked awful so I got rid of it.

Use AMP for WP, neither one of those.

Could it be that what is slowing you down is all the plugins you seem to have installed?

When was that, because I believe Jay has since disavowed amp saying it will disappear,

If you are on the new server with Kraken, you should not need AMP.

That was in 2017. It was either late last year or early this year in one of his webinars he predicted it would be irrelevant soon.
