Support » Fixing WordPress » SEO with WP/PWA and AMP plugins

  • Hi,

    Not sure if this is the right place to post, so feel free to direct me if there’s another sub forum available.

    I’ve been tasked with researching the capabilities of combining WP with PWAs and AMP for the company I work for. I see there are methods of doing this and it all looks very promising. The one big question whether there are any SEO gotchas or considerations we may have to accommodate.

    My understanding of this strategy is:

    On the mobile side:

    We use AMP search engine results to drive people to an AMP landing page. Should be superfast, no?

    From the AMP landing page navigation takes the user to the WP PWA. From there IF the user decides to download, we’ll have the ability to utilize pwa functionality (eg notifications)

    From the desktop side, wordpress/pwa is delivered as normal thru regular search results

    We use Yoast for SEO, btw.

    This strategy seems to have the speed benefit for mobile, the interactivity of PWAs (if downloaded) and a largely undisturbed browsing experience otherwise.

    It seems a little too perfect, so I’m sure I’m missing something 🙂

    What are the pros, cons, gotchas involved with this especially on the SEO side?

  • hahaha… I like the “to good to be true” thinking… but that’s it: too good to be true!

    So let’s narrow down to the possible problems:

    AMP configuration could steal your traffic. So, pay atention to direct your users to AMP page inside your domain not the ampproject one. (most WP AMP plugins take care of it…)

    If you use AdSense, forget PWA for now. It can be a nightmare to setup and your account can be suspended. That doesn’t make any sense, I know! Google loves PWA but AdSense doesn’t.

    Safari users won’t benefit from PWA in full.

    And those are the only “buts” I could think about… none of them are big deals, so your setup is good to go!

    And about PWA, the user doesn’t have to download anything. The browser will download it. The user just need to optin for notifications and add it to home screen, if in Android.

    BTW share your results with us after implementing that…
