    For starters why would you use Google AMP?

    1 Better SEO (AMP is Made By Google)

    2 Faster Load times.

    Cons Of AMP

    1 Website is stripped to Bare bones! (Personaly I Like this)

    2 NO JAVASCRIPT!!! (Iframes work)

    Ok lets get to the basics.



    That is an image tag

    Video Programming example.

    This browser does not support the video element.

    This is to Complex for me!!!! Well Lets make it simple

    AMP For WP Plugin By Ahmed Kaludi

    AMP for WP – Accelerated Mobile Pages

    The Features.

    1 auto convert HTML To AMP HTML

    2 All Pages are Valid.

    3 OWN AMP Theme frameworks!

    Also a Visual Builder.

    NOTE (HIGHLY Recommend Designing Content in word AND NOT A PAGE BUILDER FOR AMP) Not all of page builders are HTML. Shouldn't be a problem with elementor.

    All you have to do is Install AMP For WP and wait a few days google should see your site now uses AMP!


    Image Blah blah you know what to do Regular HTML

    Video src”xx.com” vs


    You get the idea just add amp- to everything and you pretty much got it. Note AMP FOR WP Auto converts.

    Wow, that's quite a list.

    Yes I do know that Google is working with WordPress to improve AMP.

    The initial version of AMP was not that great.
