AMP for WordPress Plugin Review: Dominant Technology for Mobile-first Web

Using a pontifical tone of narrators at the school conferences, I should proclaim: your visibility in Google’s mobile search results, click-trough rates, user engagement and conversions hugely depend on AMP. If you are new to the term, it’s an acronym for Accelerated Mobile Pages project – a Google’s initiative for mobile-first web.

In plain words, AMP Project represents technology, which offers the highest website loading performance on mobile devices. Its main aim is to simplify the life of publishers, consumers, users, advertisers, creators, entrepreneurs and other web citizens by serving simplified content versions across mobile devices for the sake of speed and usability.

As a bonus, Google may reward AMP-enabled websites with higher rankings thanks to faster load times, longer sessions, more page views, better UX, to name a few. Billions of AMP pages exist today.

WordPress Twenty Nineteen Demo: Testing Beta Version

As you already know, WordPress 5.0 is due for release on November, 19th, 2018. The new block-based Gutenberg editor and the Twenty Nineteen theme, which is fully based on Gutenberg, are just around the corner – they are planned to be included into the major release.

However, as Allan Cole stated recently, Twenty Nineteen remains a work in progress and it might not be ready to be rolled out along with WordPress 5.0.

We were eager to see it in the wild but failed to find a Twenty Nineteen demo. Though there are quite illustrative Twenty Nineteen theme mockups and InVision prototypes, unfortunately, we can’t so far get the feeling of how the theme operates in real time.

So why not run it ourselves? This idea brought the WordPress 2019 theme demo to life and it is now accessible to everyone for preview purposes.

Best Free WordPress Themes. Proving Examples that They Exist

So, at this juncture, we have a little left to do: choose a template that offers the widest choice of tools and stays in line with our objectives of website creation.
