In the fast-moving world, we all do not want to keep waiting for things especially when it is related to technology. Be it any application or any website, we all want it to load quickly and open up quickly. According to a survey also, it is being said that if a website does not load in 5 to 6 seconds, the visitors leave the website instantly. To cope with this problem, Google founded a solution for it in the year 2016, so that it can help such websites and webpages. It is known as Google AMP. The AMP stands for Accelerated Mobile Pages. With the help of this technology, one can easily open a website without any delay. As it will hardly take one second in loading. This will also help you in saving the data, as it uses less data than before when it comes to opening the regular web pages.

And ensure that it follows the standards of the AMP Project. Once you are done with doing it, you will get a URL for your AMP website. That AMP website URL which you will get will work on different web browsers. Like it will work on Safari, Chrome, and Firefox also. When you visit or open any AMP Page from the Google search results, they will load very fast. It is because Google does the hosting of the AMP webpages on the servers of Google. And then it directly served the content on its website.
Those who are using the AMP Project technology will be happy to know, that Google gives more importance to such web pages when it is about the search engine ranking. For all sort of news stories, AMP is required for getting the number one rank among the search results on the mobile.
