The module helps you to increase your website performance on mobile devices. Easily create the AMP for the home page, category page, product page, cart page, checkout page, and CMS page. AMP pages load faster & also help in decreasing the bounce rate.
Note: AMP pages will only support standard Prestashop features. It will not support third-party modules.
How AMP Module Works
Our module provides AMP pages for your website and the display of AMP page totally depends on Google. You can validate your AMP pages on AMP validator tool here: https://validator.ampproject.org/
Google automatically calls AMP page of your website, you do not need to call any amp page by yourself. After crawling the AMP pages, you can check your website amp pages in google console. Keep in mind, it may take some time for Google to index your AMP pages. You will not see them appear in your search results right away.
Also, something to note, the first users to implement Google AMP will probably take precedence over small publishers. Many of the bigger publishers were using AMP in its beta testing days and therefore have a stronger foundation.
Another thing to keep in mind is that much of your visibility depends on the user’s search query and the algorithms of Google – even if you’ve passed all Google AMP validation tests.
You can also check the AMP page from the module back office, but that does not mean that the AMP has been created for that page, it will only show, how it will look. Creation on the AMP page will depend on Google, as explained earlier.
