    Google's new Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) initiative (in the public domain) produces stripped-back versions of pages with less time consuming javascript-driven ads to make mobile pages very fast to load.

    Search demo:

    Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Wordpress, Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, BBC, New York Times etc are among those taking part. A rough test of the Original BBC article, linked to above, using Google PageSpeed Insights went from 34/100 to 97/100 with the AMP version of the same article. A typical Hubpages article has a mobile speed of 66/100. I wonder how much delay is caused by Editbot having to apply 'corrections' to pages from the database before they are rendered. Page delivery on mobiles is critical for users. Those involved hope that this initiative will help discourage the use of ad-blockers on mobile devices. Some ads can seriously impede loading times. Some users use ad-blockers simply to get what they want quicker.

    While AMP pages may not rank higher on SERPS, Google does consider speed as important and this may boost rankings.

    Google's AMP is a drastic move to be competitive with the competition of Apple’s News articles and Facebook’s Instant Articles. It strips the javascript out of pages leaving a 'bare-bones' core text and images, with none of the fancy stuff. It is fulfilling users needs within the limitation of the small screen sizes on mobiles and so delivery of pages to the device (processor power and slow WiFi speeds). Users simply want to read the information quickly and without delays or interruptions.
