How To Install AMP On WordPress

Looking to get started with Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP)? Search Engine Land columnist Stephanie LeVonne has put together this handy guide for WordPress users.

Step 1: Install and activate your AMP plugin(s)
In order for AMP to work, you need to install the base AMP plugin by Automattic. There are additional plugins you can add (recommendations in the article) after the base AMP plugin is installed to gain greater functionality.

Step 2: Set up Google Analytics
Copy your tracking ID, then log in to WordPress. In the left-hand navigation, go to AMP > Analytics and paste your tracking ID where it says Google Analytics. Then click Save Changes.

Step 3: Configure plugin settings
Follow this step if you have activated the Yoast SEO plugin as part of your WordPress setup (recommended); otherwise, skip it.

Step 4: Test/validate your AMP setup
It’s time to make sure that everything is working; otherwise, Google will not display your AMP URLs in the search results.

Step 5: Submit your most important AMP URLs for indexation
Click the ‘submit to Google’ button in the Google Search Console once you have tested and validated that everything is working correctly.

Step 6: View in Google Search Console to troubleshoot for errors
Correct as necessary.

Step 7: Test page speed
Congratulations! It’s time to compare the results of your AMP and standard mobile pages by running them through a page speed tool.
