Accelerated Mobile Pages, AMPs, is an initiative to build “mobile optimized content and have it load instantly anywhere.” These pages adhere to strict guidelines set forth by Google and are essentially stripped down versions of a normal webpage designed for one purpose, speed. Because of the stripped functionality, the use of AMPs are still limited to content pages such as news articles and blog posts but can still see major benefits when used appropriately.
Optimized Pages that seem to load instantly on mobile devices
