13. Live Update

(!! Temporarily disabled !!)
This WP AMP plugin uses the AMP Live List feature and checks every 16 seconds to see if a newer version exists on the server of the AMP site (for example, the Google Search server).

14. IVW Counter for the reach of your site / IVW SZM-Tag

If present, the Accelerated-Mobile-Pages (AMP) plugin recognizes the IVW offer identifier and IVW code from the IVW SZM tag of the website and adds these IVW settings to the AMP page! This will also add the IVW range of the AMP pages to their own online reach. In order for the IVW measurement to work correctly, the line “* .amp-cloud.de” (without quotation marks) must be added to the own locallist in the INFOnline account.

15. AMP Menu

If your Website uses the nav-Tag to render the navigation-bar the AMP Plugin will also generate a navigationbar for your AMP-Version, based on your nav-Tag-Section.

Is your website indexed at the Google-AMP-Cache?

The faster pageload of AMP is generated by saving the AMP-Site onto the Google-Servers, which Google will do at itself. How much time this will take is different by each website and is based on the Google-Algorithms. To check, if is your site actually in the Google-AMP-Cache, you can test it with the following free online-tool:

  1. Note that the AMP plugin currently only supports AMP for posts, that means Pages, Archives, Categories, Tags, etc. will not work correctly.
  2. The first time an AMP version is called, it may take a little longer to load because the AMP generator will take a little longer for the first version.
  3. This AMP plugin orients itself to Schema.org tags, more at: AMP doesn´t work
Why are changes not visible in the AMP version?

It can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes to make changes in the AMP version.

Reviews

Simple and easy AMP Plugin for WordPress

Cant imagine whats up on the review by Svend Rugaard. …so, try it yourself for a while and see what you get.

Works still fine. Just install the amp plugin for wordpress and activate it. No more Settings needed. Even the Page-Load-Speed-up comes up, when google has saved the AMP-Pages in its Index. Easy and simple to use.

Best regards

Version 1.4

*11.03.2017 – AMP Feature: Improving User Experience (UX) of AMP Pages – So far, the AMP plugin had provided the AMP pages under the AMP Cloud.de domain. This has the particular advantage that the AMP plugin can also automatically provide all AMP pages under an HTTPS connection, even if the plugin user himself does not have an SSL certificate for his website. According to Google’s latest AMP recommendations, from a usability point of view, AMP pages should be better served under the actual domain’s own domain so that users are not irritated by a foreign domain. With the new version “AMP it up! Version 1.4” the AMP plugin is now optimized and provides the AMP pages directly under the own domain for a better user experience. If you want to continue to provide your AMP pages automatically under HTTPS, you must now enable HTTPS for your website! The AMP plugin “AMP it up!” will continue to support it automatically!

Version 1.3

13.11.2016 – AMP Feature: Added IVW tag detection. The AMP plugin takes over the IVW online count from the SZM tag of the website. For a correct IVW count, the line “ .amp-cloud.de” (without quotation marks) must be added to the IVW locale list.
*05.10.2016 – AMP Feature: HTTPS protocol enabled. Each AMP page is secured by an SSL certificate.

Version 1.2

Version 1.1

*24.08.2016

Example-2: www.MyWordPress.com/MyPath/MyPage.php?MyParameter=xyz&amp=1
(&amp=1 – If a query string is used)

Version 1.0

*25.06.2016 – Until now, only the AMPHTML-Generator existed via amp-cloud.de and had to be installed manually via tag in each subpage. With the first version of “AMP it up!” Creating AMP versions in a WordPress blog is much easier. The WordPress pages no longer need to be customized individually. – Just install the AMP plugin, activate it and you’re done!
