As the general public becomes more mobile, digital services like Google have had to adjust with updates like “Mobilegeddon“. Over the years, Google has applied more and more of its resources to mobile websites in recent years. The numbers clearly support this initiative, with the number of mobile searches on a dramatic upturn that dates back as far as 2016.
Google’s primary response to the surge in mobile usage is a project known as AMP, or Accelerated Mobile Pages. In conjunction with Bing and Yahoo, a minimizing technique was created to decrease mobile load times while still displaying pertinent content. This project is a collaborative effort which can aid plumbing websites in the following ways:
- Conversions: AMPs are shown to increase conversion rates
- Engagement: AMPs are shown to encourage user engagement
- Flexibility: AMPs allow publishers and advertisers to decide how to present their content
- Site Speed Optimization: AMPs eliminate unnecessary code blocks and speed up a page’s loading time
Advances in technology have led to shortened attention spans and increased user expectations for websites. Not only do internet users want engaging and informative content, but they want it instantly. Google’s AMP project can help plumbing websites fulfill the needs of their users and keep pace with, or even exceed, competitors.

AMP and Advertising
On-page content is not the only thing that will be impacted by AMPs. Online advertising is also an important aspect of accelerated mobile pages. Historically, online ads have slowed down the speed of websites prompting an increase in the usage of ad blockers to speed up a website experience. With that in mind, Google has intentionally incorporated advertising formats into their AMPs so that companies can monetize their websites in a user-friendly way. In fact, several ad networks have already become compatible with AMPs, including:
Plumbing companies interested in advertising their services in the modern digital landscape will have to account for speed and user experience more than ever before. There is a great upside to this concept, as a historically poor aspect of the internet experience is intrusive advertising that slows down pages and frustrates users. Google AMPs have provided a simple fix to this problem, allowing web designers to seamlessly incorporate ads that cater to the user experience.
