What is AMP?

AMP, short for accelerated mobile pages, is a new way to build web pages that will allow static content to render faster on a mobile device. There are three different parts of AMP in action.

AMP HTML is like regular HTML, but with some restrictions that enable a reliable performance, and it incorporates extensions that help to build content that is richer than basic HTML. AMP JS library makes sure that AMP HTML pages will render quickly. The Google AMP cache may be used to serve saved AMP HTML pages.

It can be said that AMP HTML is simply extended HTML with properties that are customized for AMP. Most of the tags in an AMP HTML page will be regular HTML tags, while some will be replaced with tags that are specific to the AMP design. These custom elements are called ANP HTML components, and allow common patterns to be easily implemented.

Are Keywords Still Important for SEO?

Are Keywords Still Relevant for SEO?

A major discussion point regarding SEO recently has been that if topics or keywords are more important. This discussion comes from the fact that Google is learning how to understand the natural language.

How to Make Your Content Search Friendly

As some people might not know, it is absolutely free and totally easy to be included within Google's search results with little to no effort on your part. This is because Google is a totally automated search engine that relies on software called web crawlers that explore the internet regularly to find sites to add to their index. Many of the websites listed on Google's search results have not been manually submitted to be included, thanks to the bots that have been crawling the internet periodically. In order to determine if your website is already on Google's index, search for your website's URL.
